7. Business and Leisure Travel
Business and leisure travel or (as it’s affectionately known around here) “bleisure” is a favorite topic among tourism experts this year. It’s predicted to be a very lucrative trend for tour and activity providers in 2017 and some project that it will rise in popularity.
However, we’re not so convinced.
Bleisure has been presented as a rising trend for several years, but there is more data suggesting its static in the past five years than its rise. It would suggest that this isn’t as much a trend as it is an observation of the latest traveler needs. For generations, people have been extending their business trips into leisure travel, so we can’t exactly say that this is an emerging trend.
