The 2021 virtual conference theme, T4: Travelling Towards Tomorrow Together, provided a platform to address the challenges and opportunities presented by the COVID-19 pandemic on the tourism industry. While recognizing the drastic impact of the pandemic on travel and tourism, it is time to move forward.
