The most realistic scenario for the tourism sector is that some normality will be restored to the industry by the beginning of the summer, between June and July, once the health situation has stabilized, following the vaccination program scheduled for Spain and the main client countries of the United Kingdom or Germany, and mobility between autonomous regions and the rest.
This is what Nuria Montes, Secretary General of the Costa Blanca and Valencia Hosbec hotel association, said on Monday. Together with other experts, Montes attended the “Return to Return” conference. Recipes for healing,” coordinated by Alicante Gastronómica at the Institución Ferial Alicantina (IFA).
On both a face-to-face and a virtual basis, Alicante Gastronómica brought together a large group of specialists from the fields of economy, hospitality, gastronomy and tourism at a conference where industry leaders discussed the new challenges they face after the pandemic.
At the meeting, full support was given to Turisme Comunitat Valenciana and the Chambers of Commerce in the Community, who said they would do whatever they could to “support the hospitality industry and show that it is one of the main industries that the province is offering.”
Nine months after the start of the health emergency, analysts, including Emilio Ontiveros and Montes, said they were beginning to see some light at the end of the tunnel, and as long as the vaccine plans were fulfilled, the situation would only increase. Everyone decided that the reactivation of tourism must take place immediately, after the restrictions had been lifted.
“Because it is a well-valued sector, and because people will again want to travel,” said Emilio Ontiveros, “given the positioning of Alicante tourism and hospitality on the national stage, the government must take advantage of the opportunity it has now, following the arrival of European funds, to provide whatever support the tourist industry needs.”
