I liked the webinar because he made me realized, even more, to adapt to the new itinerary. For example, in Germany, many hotels closed down after some weeks of Operation since it is cheaper to stay closed than operate under Coronavirus restrictions. He points out is that most clients in Leisure Travel book only about seven days in advance. Two major problems are, first, travel warning out of the blue. In the last 7 days, Vienna, Budapest, French Riviera, Lissabon got a warning, which is sort of Lockdown. Second is Europe's major problem: Even if you arrive at your destination, a travel warning might be raised during your stay. So, how to get home, go into quarantine, or get tested. Adapting to a new itinerary is vital because the virus is prevalent everywhere, and we need to be very careful not to jeopardize our health and our travel. As I engaged myself from this seminar, I have learned that I can be a Travel Planner, Marketing Manager, or a Telecom Billing Analyst. Furthermore, the webinar is a great start to understand the hospitality industry changes, and it allows me to expand my career opportunities.
