As the travel and tourism industry continues to emerge from the devastation of the global pandemic, focus on building back better is a foundational theme among any recovery strategy. Join industry leaders from New York City for an in-depth look at how they are preparing to rebuild responsibly with a commitment to sustainability, uplifting local culture and inclusion initiatives. Panelists will share how their tourism product has evolved despite the pandemic—from the newly-expanded and sustainable Javits Center to major construction progress at airports and train stations, as well as planning for the safe reopening of New York City's cultural gems such as Broadway and museums. We'll also learn how their messaging has continued to evolve as well as how travel verticals have worked with city officials to plan for welcoming visitors back to enjoy a stronger New York City.
