Travel and pandemics

Worldwide, travel for business and vacation has been disrupted by the spread of the new virus. It is a global crisis impacting every facet of the tourism industry in every country. 

It’s A Big Deal

Initial response to postponing trips (in Feb 2020) was in fact lower than January due to information going around that the disease doesn’t affect the young, and it’s not such a big deal. Both pieces of information turned out to be wrong though. The Virus affects all and is a big deal.

Anxiety Over Travel

Most people ask about the timeframe of the crisis being over. What has to be understood is that different geographical locations have a different level of crisis waves, and the situation has to be viewed globally, not locally.

The Future Of The Travel Industry

While the travel industry will rebound quickly, initially travel may be to nearby destinations, and more people would prefer driving than taking a plane.

The Young and The Rich

The well-off are more interested in traveling due to the fact that their self-efficacy makes them take more risks. Similarly, the young lot is more prone to risk-taking, being adventurous and energetic.

Traveling shows human inequality and what all traffic, noise and ‘commercial development’ has done to our planet.

The New Reality

Now with the global pandemic being a new reality, film festivals are increasingly going online. SXSW, for instance, went virtual within weeks and even partnered with Amazon Prime for an online Film Festival.

Digital solutions are the way forward for many other film festivals, as otherwise, they lose millions in and revenue while scrambling for viewers and distributors for their projects.

Expansive Reach

Digital platforms and technological solutions make the content more accessible, sustainable and democratic. The streamed screenings and online question and answer sessions bring in unexpected benefits coupled with a vaster reach, due to the elimination of physical constraints and logistical issues associated with big events. 

Case in Point: Disabled audiences were earlier unable to access or be part of the event, and were now optimistic about the technological elements deployed, which helped them tremendously.

Shape your perspective

Instead of focussing on the negatives in the situation, deliberately discover what is still going right. 

In choosing your perspective you are keeping the problem from consuming you.

Be solution-focused

Break the problems into workable pieces. Ask yourself how you can manage each piece.

Find opportunities

Every crisis presents opportunities for growth. Think how someone else you admire might handle the situation.

How can your crises shape you for the better?
