These are the four challenges which, in the opinion of Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría and Trinidad Jiménez, tourism must face:

  1. “Look after geopolitical stability, infrastructure and talent management” are the main challenges for the former vice president of the Government of “a sector that must be support with the necessary policies to continue being pointer in the world”.
  2. The former minister, for her part, has advocated being “especially careful with the coexistence policies between nationals and tourists in the cities.”
  3. Sáenz de Santamaría has also stressed that “we have to ensure that medium-sized companies are joining the technological revolution that we are going to live”, while Jiménez has pointed out that “Spain is one of the best prepared countries to face it.”
  4.

“The happiness industry”

This initiative arises from the cycle of debates “Let’s save tourism”organized by Grupo Hotusa since May 2020, at a time when the crisis resulting from the outbreak of the pandemic hit the tourism sector hard.

Almost four years later, with more than 20 hybrid meetings and 50 speakers high-level speakers from different fields and sectors, the cycle has been consolidated, according to network sources, as “an open and plural space for debate to analyze how to restore tourism to our economy and society”.

With a title more in line with the current moment and associated with the meaning that tourism has for the majority of citizens, “The happiness industry”the same sources add, “follows in the footsteps of its predecessor with a small change in format, but with the spirit and objective intact: that of bringing together authoritative voices with the aim of analyze and debate the future prospects of the tourism sector”.
