ITB World Travel Trends Report 2012/2013
Source: ITB Berlin
From the Foreword:
The report covers the main trends in outbound travel demand for the first eight months of 2012 together with estimates for the full year and also contains ini- tial forecasts for 2013...
In addition, it focuses on various topics and market segments that were discussed at the Forum. These include the role of technology and social media, the challenges facing the cruise business, niche markets such as adventure travel and medical tourism, and the need for better accessibility for people with disabilities.
As the following sections make clear, the world travel industry again proved its resilience and ability to overcome crises this year. Despite many different negative factors, the travel and tourism industry is expected to reach a new all-time high in 2012. According to IPK’s World Travel Monitor, outbound (international) trips will increase by 4% in 2012, which is only slightly lower than last year’s 5% growth figure.
