Travel Trends 2018: Purpose Travel

A way of travelling that is good for all those involved could well become the new standard! In the presentation on Purpose Travel, the growing demand for special experiences and the need for a more conscious exchange with the locals, with nature and with animals, come together. The prejudice that sustainable travel mostly attracts bohemians and alternative types, is a thing of the past.

More and more people have tuned their moral compass, their ‘bucket list’ contains less materialistic trips, and travel providers are also slowly adding the P of Purpose to People, Planet & Profit. A win-win-win situation generating added value for everyone.

In her visual presentation, Tessa introduces you to the 5 travel trends for 2018, followed by a more in-depth discussion of ‘Purpose Travel’ based on inspiring cases, examples and research. What is the role of Millennials, Generation Z and Xennials in this rapid change? And what do destinations, locals and an undercurrent of travel providers to do actually offer purpose? How important are technology and the sharing economy?
