MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

Like several other prominent European cities on the tourist trail, Berlin too has been suffering in recent seasons from the menace of over- crowding. To solve this, the city authorities will be tracking use of mobile data. This crucial business intelligence, will provide the authorities with a window to where travellers are congregating at different points of the day, and how to divert traffic away to reduce pressure at the major attractions. This data is to be provided by the Deutsche Telekom network. Recommendations will also directly be made to the travellers on routes that are less busy, and so more convenient for the travel part.

The top ten countries in the list of highest inbound tourism revenue attractors, make up for about half of all the world’s expenditures. As per business intelligence submitted by the UNWTO (World Tourism Organization), these countries also account for about forty percent of the international trips. The countries on this list are the USA, the UK, Spain, France, Italy, Thailand, Australia, Germany, China and Japan. The USA leads with a total revenue generated in excess of two- hundred and fifteen billion US dollars. Mexico and Turkey were exceptions in the fact that they were amongst the ten most visited countries in the world, but did not make the top ten in terms of revenues, replaced there by Australia and Japan.

The government of Senegal wants the country to be amongst the top five destinations in Africa for inbound tourism by the year 2023. For this several steps are being taken. At present, tourism makes up a tenth of the country’s GDP, while nine percent of all employment is in tourism jobs. The rate of growth has also been impressive, clocking at around seven percent. The new Museum of Black Civilizations, opened in the capital of Dakar, has been a major hit, as have the Monument of the African Renaissance and the megalitihic circles in the south of the country in Senegambia. Tourism consulting firm Horwath HTL has been making the right noises on how Senegal is poised for substantial growth in the sector. A diversified offering needs to be established better to achieve the same.

While the world of tourism has seen several business innovations that have challenged the existing models, and crated new revenue streams, there have also been a fair share of disasters. One such were the World Islands, developed on the Persian Gulf off Dubai. Its misfortune was the financial crisis of 2008 which put an end to this project’s hopes of success. Another is the new airport in Berlin, set initially for its inauguration in 2011, but constantly put back. Its latest date has been set for 2021. Yet another is the New South China Mall in Dongguan, which has been a huge loss in terms of land wastage. The Estadio Nacional de Brasilia met a similar fate after being opened up for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, but with little use post the mega event. The last on the list, is the Harmon Hotel in Las Vegas. This was such a failure, that in 2013, it was decided to completely demolish the structure.

A number of hipster hotels are now rising in prominence in many of the most prominent cities in the world. New York City is one that is replete with the same. These are lower in costs, but their biggest advantage is their proximity to the landmark sights in that city. This massively saves the commuting costs. Such hotels are now widely being referred to as Li- Fi ones. At NYC for instance, there is the Westgate Grand Central, which has been refurbished from a one- time high- end Hilton property. Such business innovations offer a cozy atmosphere and unique experiences. They also generally tend to have much more friendly staff.

Once the digital age becomes overwhelming, professionals will need to develop further competencies in order merely to survive. The Gen Z and some millennials are broadly being seen as Gen Mobile now. Some skills have been identified which will help individuals survive and even thrive during this digital age. A 1950s principle known as KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) applies even today. Now, there is an even greater need for the said Simplicity. Another is Individuality. This is because too many people are now following the same trends, those with an individuality, are more likely to generate and then work upon business innovations. The third is to proactively develop networks. A study has confirmed that face- to- face meetings are thirty- four times more effective in sealing business deals, so networks come very much handy.

The Mexican Caribbean region is beset with a unique problem. The region has been inundated with a outgrowing of the dreaded Sargassum weed. This could hamper tourism in this region. To cope with this, hotels here will provide a discount of between fifteen and twenty percent to the customers. This has been mentioned by the President of the Confederation of National Chambers of Commerce, Services and Tourism. The Sargassum seaweed is invasive, leading to destruction of native habitat here, besides a potential loss in tourism jobs. The region expects a total of nearly seventy million tourists during the holiday season from July to August. While majority of these tourists would be domestic, substantial numbers of inbound travelers also arrive from Canada, USA and from Europe.
