The convergence of economic, demographic and cultural trends will continue to revolutionize the tourism industry. It is expected the next two decades will see more lifestyle changes than in the entire past century. Three driving forces: baby boomers, the rise of the urban middle class in emerging, previously under-developed countries, and, the reality that travel aspirations are becoming almost a human covet. Accelerating the process is technology – both travel-specific technology, such as the introduction of newer and cheaper transportation modes, and numerous unrelated but important technologies. The convergence of Internet, telephone and television in a digital soup and the increasing capability of pending technology will continue to drive change in ways as yet unimaginable.Recently noted is the example quoted; “the velocity of information transfer, the ‘death of distance’ and the ability to reach out to consumers all over the globe – all consequences of digital convergence -- is empowering everyone in the travel industry”.Customers are today further driven with a plethora of choice and information. The consumer experience, the tourist experience, now begins long before they leave home.
