Middle East are expected to close the travel gap with mature markets.

Travel Monitor showed The MICE segment now accounts for 54 of the. total business travel market Within the MICE segment incentives 61. conventions 44 and conferences 27 have all grown strongly. since 2009 on a cumulative basis while traditional company trips have. declined by 10, Online bookings The internet increased its dominance as a booking channel to 65 this. close to saturation year with a 10 rise in bookings while travel agency bookings increased. level by just 4 resulting in a market share of 24 Mobile bookings are. growing fast but at 2 remain small on an overall basis In mature travel. markets online booking seems to be close to saturation with a market. share of about 70 Freitag pointed out In these markets the down. ward trend for travel agency bookings seems to have stopped at around. 20 Moreover travel agents were again able to even increase their. market share slightly since emerging markets with a high proportion of. first time travellers still need the support of travel agencies.

Middle East were able to record positive growth in average daily rate. ADR according to the company s analysis of data from over 47 000. hotels worldwide, In Europe demand increased about 3 over the first nine months of the. year while hotel capacity grew only slightly As a result the average. occupancy rate rose by 2 2 although the ADR weakened by 1 5 STR. Global s data showed 2012 was quite a busy year for Europe with the. European Championship in Poland and Ukraine and the Olympic Games. in London Therefore it is not a surprise that ADR shows a 1 5 decrease. in 2013 Schlamminger commented Southern Europe is recovering well. in terms of hotel occupancy and prices this year while prices are falling in. Northern and Eastern Europe although occupancy is rising North. America is also performing well this year Demand was up 2 well ahead. of low capacity growth pushing the occupancy rate up by 1 5 and the. average room price rose by 3 9, In Asia however supply has grown faster than demand for the first time. in two years Schlamminger pointed out The active pipeline based on. hotel rooms in Asia suggests an additional 13 rise in capacity in the. next few years The region s occupancy rate weakened slightly by 0 4. and the average rate dropped by 3 5 In contrast demand outpaced. supply significantly in the Middle East in the first three quarters of this. year and the region s active hotel room pipeline remains hot with 37. more capacity being planned or constructed at present Occupancy. improved by 3 3 and the average daily rate rose by 3 6.

Overnight stays increased by 2 and spending rose by 1 Europeans. again went on shorter trips this year with the average length of one stay. dropping by 2 to 7 9 nights This trend already apparent in recent. years was due to a combination of more short trips 9 and fewer. long trips 1 Spending went up by 1 overall Spending per night. went up by 2 to 114 but the average spending per trip dropped by. 1 to 904 due to the shorter average length of trips. Most European source markets grew solidly this year although there. were extremes at both ends of the range Russia was Europe s fastest. growing outbound travel market this year with a 12 increase in. outbound trips in the first eight months of the year and France was. surprisingly strong in view of the country s weak economy with a 5. rise Sweden and the UK both 3 also grew well and German trips incre. ased by 2 In contrast Spain 4 and Italy 5 again slumped due to. their economic problems, Source World Travel Monitor 2013 IPK International.

Tourism Organization has raised its 2013 full year forecast for Europe from. 2 3 predicted at the start of the year to 5 However the prospects. for next year are less clear We do not think we will see the same strength. next year said John Kester UNWTO tourism trends director. Similar trends were reported by the European Travel Commission ETC. which represents national tourist boards Europe has generally had a good. year for inbound tourism in 2013 and is looking ahead relatively confi. dently to more growth in 2014 according to an ETC survey among its. members Most countries reported a positive performance in the first. 6 8 months of this year said Leslie Vella of the Malta Tourism Authority. and chairman of the ETC Market Intelligence Group Winners so far this. year with an overall double digit growth in international arrivals are. Iceland Slovakia Serbia and Latvia, The ETC is currently predicting an overall 4 rise in inbound tourism to. European countries in 2013 driven by rising visitor numbers from Russia. Asia and the USA This year most European countries have higher numbers. of visitors from Russia Germany the UK Norway Sweden France and. Switzerland but the picture is more mixed in terms of visitors from the. Netherlands Spain and Italy, For 2014 the organisation forecasts a further 3 rise with growth to be. sustained by a mix of intra European and overseas source markets How. ever there is still a cloud of economic uncertainty hanging over many. destinations Vella cautioned, Southern Europe In regional terms destinations in Central and Southern Europe are doing. outpaces Northern much better than Northern Europe this year In Southern Europe most. Europe countries forecast more tourists this year Malta Portugal and Croatia. for example expect 6 8 growth this year while Italy predicts a 2 5. rise The region is expected to see a further 3 growth in 2014.

The 2014 forecast shows 2 4 growth, In Northern Europe Nordic destinations expect similar international.
visitor numbers as last year with lower German visitor numbers balanced. by growth from Russian and Asian markets However the UK is doing. well with a 5 rise this year so far while Ireland expects a 6 growth. this year Northern Europe is expected to see a better performance. 1 4 growth in 2014,World Travel Trends Report 2013 2014. Section C Asia Travel Trends, Asia booms as Asia is one of the world s travel hotspots in 2013 with a strong growth as. Chinese travel soars well for outbound travel and incoming tourism as for domestic travel. and therefore it was also a focal point on the first day of the forum.

This divergence between Chinese and Japanese outbound markets is. likely to continue in 2014 as well the Asian Travel Monitor found Chine. se outbound travel is expected to grow by a further 18 while the Japa. nese market is predicted to improve slightly to a stable zero growth For. the overall Asian outbound market this means that the number of inter. national trips is likely to increase by a healthy 9 next year. This surge in international travel by Chinese people has reinforced their. clear leadership of the Asian outbound travel market With 45 million. international trips and travel expenditures of US 84 4 billion in 2012 the. Chinese market was already double the size of the Japanese market in. volume terms and nearly 80 larger in terms of spending according to. IPK s World Travel Monitor figures The Japanese took 19 4 million out. bound trips and spent US 47 3 billion on international travel last year.
