MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

The seventy- fifth anniversary of the Normandy landings were recently commemorated on 6th June. There was a cast of one- hundred and sixty veterans of the Second World War for the ceremony held in France. It was attended by, among others, Donald Trump and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron. This was amongst the most iconic events in the war, which led to the final victory of the Allies, though at much cost of human lives lost. Normandy is now making good money based around this Remembrance tourism. There are fifty- six military and memorial sites, strewn all over the Normandy coastline. Business intelligence provided by the CSA Research points to an overwhelming interest among the visitors towards the Basse- Normandie region, being preferred over the Upper- Normandy. The events being held attract tourists from different parts of the world, such as from the UK, USA, Canada, Belgium, the Netherlands and of course from France. The Normandy region has applied for UNESCO recognition of the beaches here involved on D- Day.

After more than a decade of growth, the inflow of Chinese tourists to the USA has registered a decline this year. This is primarily due to the standoff between the countries regarding trade. As per business research conducted by the National Travel and Tourism Bureau, this inbound travel from China reduced by 5.7% to less than three million of them. This is the first inbound decline from China since 2003. The business world has also been affected by unsavory competition between Huawei on the one side and Google, Intel and Microsoft, all on the other. Experts however, add a note of optimism, by stating that this decline is likely to be short- lived. A growth rate of around 2 % is expected this year.

There are several valid reasons for why Trans- Atlantic cruise liners are known by the moniker of “floating palaces”. They offer far greater comfort than do the biggest of luxury ships and now technology is further changing them to smart hotels. 2018 was a landmark year, when twenty- seven million passengers were registered for cruise travel. This represents a six percent growth from the previous year. To keep up this momentum though, cruise ocean liners need to execute some business innovations. One of them has to be the provision of WI- Fi, as this is something most expect. At present, the VPN (Virtual Private Networks) often do not function properly. At some of them, the lines aren’t secure. Only NCL (Norwegian Cruise Lines) offers the complete deal, among the major players.

Increasingly volcanoes are attracting the curiosity of travelers. Volcano tourism is rising in a big way, but is posing questions of safety. There are over fifteen hundred volcanoes worldwide, posing a massive threat to life and air travel. Countries as far apart as Iceland, Italy and Indonesia have been severely impacted by them. Some form of responsible volcanic tourism is important so that people understand what actually goes on in them, but reckless behaviour can lead to massive repercussions. Volcano trekking needs to be taken with a lot of care. This business innovation by several travel operators is bringing in the moolah, especially in South and Central America. But the organizers need to be doubly careful, as several of these volcanoes lie on extremely high elevations.

Google is planning to expand its footprints in the travel industry. It plans to be the final one- stop solution where all travel- related services can be worked out. Its latest business innovation allows travelers to rent apartments. For this, it has tied up with the likes of Expedia, VRBO, Home away, Trip Advisor, Redawning and with hotels.com. As per this arrangement, entire houses too may be rented. One city that has already been entered in it is Amsterdam. Airbnb already occupies a substantial portion of the traveler segment thanks to its no- frills set up. Google had worked on vacation rentals earlier, but there were fewer opportunities back then in 2017.
