World Travel Market, the premier global event for the travel industry, is this year celebrating its 30th event. The industry has changed dramatically since World Travel Market first opened its doors way back in 1980, and its set to evolve at an even quicker pace over the next 30 years.


World Travel has asked some of the worldwide travel industry's most senior executives to predict the next three decades of the travel and tourism industry.

South African Tourism Chief Operating Officer and Acting Chief Executive Didi Moyle said: "Sports tourism will play a major role over the next 30 years.

"This is aimed at attracting tourists all year round, increasing arrivals, spend, GDP and improving the lives of all South Africans."
