With a bumper start to the year and sales solid into 2021, the feelgood factor has returned to the Caribbean, where new properties and reopenings are invigorating the market.
Things are moving at lightning pace as we all struggle to come to grips with the spread of Covid-19 and the impact on our lives and businesses.
Like many people around the UK – and much further afield – things have changed for us too, with our team now working from home, but still determined to deliver the news and features that matter to our agent and industry community.
When we planned this Spring issue of TTG Luxury, these kinds of scenarios were far from our minds, and our features seemed packed full of useful information. A section on Japan – the darling of the industry in 2019 – of course contains reference to the Olympics this year, which have now been postponed until 2021.
But of course the purpose of all our features and news in TTG Luxury remains the same: to equip agents with the intelligence and inspiration they need to stay ahead and offer clients incredible holiday ideas – whenever that may be. That core purpose remains, and I hope what you see in this issue will continue to provide that inspiration for the months and years ahead.
Until then, ttgmedia.com strives to be the comprehensive home for coronavirus-related news and support for travel businesses, through our dedicated Coronavirus Updates hub and our Coronavirus Business Support Service.
We’re also now seeking to bring travel together under the #OneTravelIndustry movement, with travel companies and professionals so clearly united as one against the impact of the virus, rather than their competitors.
Great agents will always overcome trying situations: that’s what makes them great. I hope that when the world gets on the move again, clients remember this and come to you once again for inspiration.
