Risk management in travel and tourism

The tourism industry operates in a dynamic environment that involves many interconnected sectors. As a result, it is constantly evolving and is particularly vulnerable to unexpected risks, challenges, issues and crises. Risks come in many forms, including health threats like the 2020 global Coronavirus pandemic, natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods, political unrest and terrorist attacks. Such risks pose significant threats to the tourism industry, destinations and tour operators working in the sector.

The IRM's India RG has curated a focused panel to discuss some of the challenges faced by the travel & tourism industry and how the sector needs to build resilience in a post-crisis world.
