City Tourism Outlook and Ranking: Coronavirus Impacts and Recovery

Wednesday 15 April | 15:00 BST | 16:00 CEST | 10:00 EDT

Please join us for an Oxford Economics webinar presentation with Dave Goodger, Director of Tourism Economics, EMEA and Kieran Ferran, Senior Economist as they provide key insights and answer your questions on the topic.

As coronavirus has spread worldwide the majority of countries, including all major tourism destinations and source markets, have imposed restrictions on travel. While these measures are beginning to combat contagion, significant disruption to economic and travel activity is also clear. Large falls in travel are now expected for all destinations worldwide, including large drops in travel to and within Europe. There remains significant uncertainty in the duration of the restrictions and hence the magnitude of the declines and subsequent path to recovery. Tourism Economics’ latest forecasts and scenarios for growth in international and domestic travel activity in coming years will be discussed with a focus on European destinations.
