Why Study Hospitality? Top Trends in Travel & Tourism 2019


Travel and tourism is booming. Over 1 billion tourists travel to another
country each year and the number keeps growing. Travel and tourism is creating new jobs. By 2026, travel and tourism will support 1
in every 9 jobs. That is 370 million jobs. Hospitality is transforming. The sharing economy, technology and innovation
are transforming and personalizing the consumer experience. Accommodation: Airbnb, Alterkeys, Bemate and
Oasis. Airbnb is valued at $30 billion — that’s
as much as the world’s largest hotel chain, Marriott International. And now, Airbnb offers experiences, too. And what’s on the horizon? Virtual and augmented reality are driving
innovation across sectors, creating new layers and multi-sensory experiences in gaming, dining,
hotels, retail and entertainment. Artificial Intelligence is evolving too, bringing
a smoother, smarter, personalized service in travel booking, recommendations, hotel
check-ins and restaurants. With all these developments, values are also
changing. Customers crave authentic, immersive experiences:
sustainable eco-tourism, cultural immersions, meet-the-locals experiences, farm-to-table
dining and personalized homestays. Les Roches is ahead of the game. We are the most global hospitality school. We have students who study with classmates
