After 300+ travel assignments in over 50 countries for B2B/B2C travel media, I write about hospitality and tourism development relating to both leisure and business markets.
Clients include: Skift, Travel+Leisure, Prevue, Leonardo and various hotel and travel suppliers. I also prepare tourism and meetings industry trend reports for global marketing agencies and business research firms.
My central premise is that the city of the future is an interdisciplinary knowledge transfer machine. Tourism marketing organizations, hotel brands and other travel suppliers who can facilitate that exchange as knowledge experience hubs have a competitive advantage among connected travelers in today’s sharing economy.
