A Lonely Planet: What’s the future for global travel in a post pandemic society?

Thursday 3 December 2020, 11.00am - 12.00pm

On Thursday 3 December, we will be joined by the founder of Lonely Planet Publications and Warwick alumnus, Tony Wheeler. Interviewing Tony will be Professor Noel McCarthy of the Warwick Institute for Global Pandemic Planning (IGPP), and Professor of Communicable Disease Epidemiology and Control, Warwick Medical School.

With alumni located in 167 countries worldwide, the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on travel is an important issue for our Warwick community. Following almost a year of restrictions, quarantine periods, changing travel corridors and border closures, travel for business and leisure remains extremely limited.

Tony and Noel will discuss these topics, including how consumers travel behaviour may change and how academic research from the IGPP can support the recovery.
