Travel and tourism is a vast and delicate ecosystem. The complexities and interdependencies of the tourism value chain are unique and—as we know all too well—vulnerable to global crises. Airlines, hotels, and destinations are poised for a comeback. So are travelers. But they’re returning to a world profoundly changed. Escalent specializes in tourism and hospitality research, travel behavior, and travel investment strategy in an industry facing profound disruption.
Why we travel is a deeply human question. What do we seek? Is it adventure, culture, luxury? Or is it a post-pandemic craving for a familiar hug or a business handshake? As specialists in human behavior, Escalent provides global tourism and hospitality research, event strategy, and consultative support across the travel and tourism ecosystem.
