The travel industry has unquestionably demonstrated its resilience in the last two years, using the downtime afforded by the pandemic to adopt new technologies and innovate. According to Phocuswright’s latest travel research report Travel Innovation and Technology Trends 2022, a dramatic acceleration in digital change has taken hold, from touchless journeys and robotic automation to the rise of remote working. We witnessed the turn in fortunes of SPACs, and the entry of tokenization and NFTs into common parlance.
