International Inbound Travel to U.S.
Speakers: David Huether, Deputy Director for Research, US Department of Commerce; Alex Jarman, Research Analyst, Euromonitor International; Moderator: Paul McLeod, Director of Analytics, Simpleview.
International travel to the U.S. effectively stopped throughout the COVID-19 period and has only recently been returning in fits-and-starts. The return of international travelers is crucial to the U.S. travel industry’s recovery. Providing the official U.S. analysis of COVID-19’s impact on international travel to and from the United States as well as its impact on international trade, David Huether will talk about current conditions in our key inbound markets, and potential developments over the months ahead. In addition, David will also provide an update on new data and tools that the Commerce Department has developed to help travel researchers monitor the state of international travel to and from the United States.
