The travel and tourism industry has a significant impact on the economy, supporting millions of jobs and delivering investment, income and cultural value to the connected modern world

The past years have seen digitalisation profoundly impact the industry, with the rise of comparing and purchasing travel deals online and increased use of mobile devices to make bookings.
