The response of tourism businesses vis-à-vis the economic ramifications of SARS-CoV-2 - Opening intellectual and real avenues for innovations

The AIEST*, the International Association of Scientific Experts in Tourism, has embarked on allocating, interpreting as well as reporting about key ramifications of the SARS-CoV-2 crisis.
The second short report, provided by a joint work of 25 co-authors, including myself, is out now. It topicalizes the response of businesses vis-à-vis the economic ramifications of SARS-CoV-2.

This report can now be downloaded at https://www.aiest.org/news/.

In short: Since many tourism and leisure activities can contribute significantly to the spread of SARS-CoV-2, it is not surprising that corresponding business activities have to endure a comprehensive and long lockdown. The response options of various industries to this lockdown are limited. However, as this short report shows, there are systematic, albeit limited, solutions to limit the economic impact to a certain extent by their own efforts.

*The AIEST is the oldest international association of scientific and practical experts with particular interest in tourism. It is a unique social network with around 300 members in 49 countries on all continents. This network is devoted to an interdisciplinary approach to serving the needs of research in tourism. It includes an Academic as well as a Practitioner stream that allow an international scientific and practical exchange. The AIEST has contributed much to an objective understanding of the modern phenomenon of tourism, and to the scientific acceptance of studies in this field. Its members help to pinpoint the latest developments and trends in tourism, and to devise farsighted solutions for new problems as they arise.
