Episode 8: Exploring the Future of Travel with G Adventures

In 2020, many frequent travelers found themselves grounded far longer than they ever expected, due to the coronavirus pandemic. When travelers increasingly take to the skies again, how can they approach their travels more responsibly and sustainably?

In this episode, Bruce Poon Tip, founder of G Adventures and author of Looptail: How One Company Changed the World by Reinventing Business and UNLEARN: The Year the Earth Stood Still, discusses his reflections on 2020 and how the travel industry can bounce back with a greater focus on sustainability and responsible travel.

About the Series
The Core of this Event is Connection

Seven years ago, ARC created the TravelConnect conference to bring together travel industry leaders to discuss the trends shaping the future of travel. At the core of this event is connection: TravelConnect is designed to spark meaningful conversations across the travel ecosystem.

Valuable, Timely Content & Connections

These conversations remain just as important — maybe more so — in the wake of COVID-19. However, the needs of our industry have changed. ARC seeks to deliver the valuable, timely content and connections of TravelConnect while adapting to the needs of our customers during this challenging time.

Free Virtual Series

ARC will host a free TravelConnect virtual series of events throughout 2020 and beyond, bringing together industry leaders for valuable conversations, and providing opportunities for attendees to connect with each other. These virtual events will replace the 2020 in-person conference originally scheduled for October, which is now cancelled, propelling ARC and the industry into 2021.
