It was a collective pain, visitor arrivals falling off the cliff, inbound tourism down to zero, across the world, and the Middle East was no exception. But that doesn’t mean people stopped thinking about travel. What does consumer sentiment look like in the Middle East when it comes to travel? And what are the intent signals being seen in their online behavior? In this episode, we explore how the Middle East outbound market will evolve and change, sharing insights gathered from research and data, and we ask destination marketers how they intend to restart, and how are they thinking differently about their products and experiences post-Covid-19?
