About Future Travel
FutureTravel is a free weekly newsletter informing you about what is next for the travel industry.

FutureTravel is here to bring forward the main innovative forces of the travel business. In 2021 the industry is going through a powerful change, and we are ready to keep you up to date on the main news, leading trends, innovations and players shaping the travel industry.
