European Travel Rising…

Posted on 23 March 2010

Every year, Europe specialists, tour operators, agents and the media attend the European Travel Commission TransAtlantic Conference to learn about recent trends in the continent’s travel scene, and what the pros think the future holds. On a recent snowy morning, hundreds of Europhiles gathered at The Times Center in Manhattan to get the latest updates.

 

Jean-Philippe Pérol, chairman of the European Travel Commission, said that travel from America to Europe fell by 12 percent last year, but is on the rise again in new and improved ways. The commission, he continued, expects European travel to increase 3 to 4 percent over the next year.

 

Recent notable trends include extended visits to the “sunny belt” in southern Europe, and an increase in wine-focused tours.
