Winter 2020/2021 Outlook in a Pandemic Economy
Ralf Garrison, founder and former CEO of Mountain Travel Symposium and Destimetrics, and friend of the VRM Intel family (last seen on stage in the opening keynote for 2019’s DARM conference), will provide a leisure travel vacation market update and a look at the upcoming 2020/2021 Winter resort season using data from Insights Collective, a pandemic economy resource center and think tank.
Laird Sager, CEO at Red Sky and Insights Collective benefactor, will facilitate this discussion’s Q&A with Garrison.
Ralf Garrison is a destination travel industry veteran, generally recognized as a thought-leader, innovator, and serial entrepreneur who has built and sold various businesses over the years, including Mountain Travel Symposium and Destimetrics.
Most recently, as the COVID virus became a pandemic with related economic consequences, Garrison helped establish Insights Collective, a pandemic economic think tank, as a platform to help decision-makers in the destination resort travel industry track the forces at play that will make up a new reality and separate the winners from the losers.
Known both for his research analytics and storytelling, Garrison is most likely to be found at the confluence of research data, analytics, and narrating the resulting stories. His presentation style has been described as “a natural storyteller, witty, sometimes irreverent, but rarely boring.”
