I expect as soon as borders are open business travel will recover quickly. Firstly the SME branches will travel and later the Global/Multinationals. To do effectively business the face to face meetings and handshakes are needed. People want to be more flexible in terms of work area, however the social impact is huge. We see in our country already people returing to offices despite some restrictions.
The is no choice but to have a longer-stay market right now due to quarantine restrictions.
I feel that in the future travel will be longer trips but less frequently, since businesses are now more used to a hybrid arrangement (online and offline combined) and instead of a fly-in-fly-out trip, time in each city will be maximised to solidify the social nature of business relationships lost with an increase of virtual meetings and reduce the amount of friction that continued restrictions such as quarantine might add.
To increase traffic, guests need to feel safe and SOPs put in place with technology to ensure that there is compliance with these SOPs.
