Our March Brand of the Month, Tumi, is the Perfect Companion for This Year’s Expected Travel Boom
With Omicron cases quickly declining, government restrictions easing, and COVID fatigue mounting, travel experts are anticipating a big rebound this Spring/Summer. According to a recent article from the New York Times, Travel agents and operators have reported a significant increase in bookings in recent weeks for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
“The World Travel & Tourism Council (W.T.T.C.), which represents the global travel and tourism industry, projects that travel and tourism in the United States will reach pre-pandemic levels in 2022, contributing nearly $2 trillion to the U.S. economy. The council also anticipates outbound travel from the United States will increase; it projects bookings over the Easter holiday period to be up by 130 percent over last year.” Air travel in particular will rally, with the International Air Transport Association reporting that as many as 150 percent more passengers will fly this year (compared to last year).
With all those trips they plan to take, your program participants will need stylish and reliable luggage to carry all their personal belongings. That’s why we’ve chosen Tumi as our March Brand of the Month.
