Trend and opportunity to redefine the tourist product. To what extent Croatia understands this and is working on it, we will find out soon. The Covid-19 pandemic also affects destination choices in certain European countries. The summer season has shown a significant increase in those who want to travel to rural and coastal places, apparently as a result of concerns about visiting highly populated urban areas, where it is more difficult to practice social distancing. A new increase in Covid-19 cases and the reintroduction of travel restrictions have halted the recovery of European tourism with 68% of international tourist arrivals in Europe, according to data from the European Travel Commission (ETC) for the third quarter of 2020 in the analysis “European tourism: trends and prospects” Read the full report in the attachment. Speaking after the publication of the report, the CEO of ETC Eduardo Santander he said the direction of economic recovery across Europe will depend heavily on the recovery of the tourism sector, a sector that generates close to 10% of EU GDP and occupies over 22 million jobs. This change in travel preferences can ultimately alleviate the issue of over-tourism (overtorusim) and allow destinations to boost sustainable tourism demand. Increased interest in travel to “secondary destinations” will relieve some popular tourist hotspots that have previously struggled with excessive travel demand and help more evenly spread the economic benefits of tourism in countries. It is the latest forecasts that predict a faster recovery of domestic travel in Europe, exceeding the level from 2019 to 2022. It is also predicted that a faster return of European arrivals by 2023 will be supported by faster easing of travel restrictions and lower perceived risk compared to long-distance travel. It is now predicted that the total volume of travel will increase return to pre-pandemic levels only by 2024. The importance of domestic and intra-European travel should not be underestimated in terms of the role it will play in the recovery of the tourism sector over the coming months, the ETC report emphasizes. Alleviating pandemic restrictions across Europe led to a slight increase in July and August 2020 compared to previous months, signaling people’s enthusiasm and desire to travel again. However, the recent re-imposition of locks and travel restrictions has quickly halted any chance of an early recovery. Looking ahead in the coming months, increased uncertainty and negative risks continue to diminish the outlook for European arrivals, which will decline by 2020% in 61.last_img read more

first_imgThis Saturday, ESPN College Gameday will be at the USC-Washington game in Seattle. I’ve grown up a USC fan, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve loved getting to watch Gameday and have always wanted to go to a show when they were at USC. I’ve always been entertained by the signs and the antics that come with the show. Now in my junior year, one of my main wishes as a student has been to have Gameday on campus. I still haven’t had the chance. I almost had the chance in 2013 when Gameday was at Stanford when USC was visiting Palo Alto. Ironically enough, my parents were at the game while I was in the mountains on a church retreat. I had an amazing time while on retreat, but getting the videos of the Trojan victory and fans storming the field from current students, friends and USC alum sent to me made it all bittersweet. In 2014, I lived vicariously through my best friend Nicolette, a Baylor fan, when Gameday stopped in Waco, Texas for the Kansas State-Baylor game. It was really cool to hear about how she spent the night on a grass field surrounded by her fellow Bears fans making posters, getting free gear and bonding together as a fan base. She was even lucky enough to get her sign on the broadcast. It was everything I had wanted to experience, but I looked forward to the possibility of Gameday being at USC either of the next three seasons. There were rumors and speculations of Gameday coming to USC during my sophomore season, but nothing panned out. I was halfway through my time at USC, but undeterred from the chances of it actually happening. On Sunday morning, while I was at home, my dad came in my room to tell me, “Guess where Gameday is going on Saturday?” Frankly, I didn’t want to believe it. I even hesitated to say the Washington game because it meant that Gameday was going to be at a USC game and I was not. Of course, Gameday would be at Washington. It stung even more because I was supposed to be in Seattle for the game. Not only would I get to work the game on the field, I was also going to get to visit friends from home that I hadn’t seen in awhile. On top of all of that, I would get to participate in the excitement that is College Gameday. But, of course, because of some commitments for a class project, I am not able to go up to Seattle for the game. It’s a bummer for a number of reasons, because I also love Seattle, but it’s a huge bummer because I’m missing out on the opportunity to participate in Gameday.With only one home game left against 3-6 Notre Dame, I can almost certainly say that College Gameday will not be making the trek to L.A. to cover the game. Another USC football season through, another season without Gameday on USC’s campus. Just as I have over the last two seasons, I’ll survive by looking forward to the possibility that Gameday will make an appearance. Looking forward, there’s a huge part of me hoping that Gameday will come in September when the Texas Longhorns make their way to the Coliseum. While the Trojans have a 4-1 all-time record against the Longhorns, every Trojans fan knows about the poor taste left behind by the 2005 National Championship Game — the last time the Trojans and Longhorns faced off. Even though this season isn’t done yet, I’ll be looking forward to next season and Sept. 16 when there’s a real chance that College Gameday could once again be on our campus.
