One of the most affected sectors during the pandemic was the hospitality industry. With the closure of borders, planes on the ground, vaccination certificates and PCR testing, travel was virtually impossible or very unattractive for a period of time.

But tourism is making a strong comeback, planes to holiday destinations are full again and the industry is awakening from its slumber. So, it’s a perfect time to look at how to make this upswing in global travel, and in the APAC region in particular, sustainable. How can tour operators, hotels and other businesses in the industry ensure that the influx of tourists is sustainable? For this we invite you to the next edition of the SwissCham APAC virtual event in the series of Sustainability! The panel features industry experts on the matter of sustainability and features all the key players.
