International Tourism, Hospitality and Events

Tourism has evolved into a global phenomenon – one of the most important economic sectors and social activities of our time. Prior to the pandemic, it contributed directly to 10.4% of the world’s GDP (US$9.2 trillion) (World Travel & Tourism Council, 2019). It is expected that the worldwide tourism revenue will reach over 900 million by 2025, compared to 300 million in 2020 (Statista Mobility Market Outlook, 2021).
