For the very first episode of The Itinerary, there was really only one topic we could kickstart the series with. COVID-19 has devastated the tourism industry around the world, and here in New Zealand we’re currently dealing with our new normal, relying on domestic travellers to keep things moving as they were.
Representatives from ATEED, Northland INC and YoungTEC make up our first guest panel to provide insight into the strategies of their organisations, the current state of play and a glimpse of what the future may hold. A second panel will feature three of New Zealand’s top tourism educators, who give their view on studying tourism at this time.
Woven into the 30-minute episode are segments which will help our displaced tourism workers discover their strengths and tips on getting work ready. Plus, learn how Go with Tourism pivoted in time for lockdown.
***Please note that this episode of The Itinerary was filmed before the Level 3 announcement on 11 August 2020***
