Travel & Tourism is the world's largest industry and accounts for 11% of the world GDP and 8% of total employment. It has been described as one of the most powerful global forces for positive change and development in an economy and a society. Forrester Research predicted that by 1999 travel would be the number one electronic commerce category, with sales topping $2.8 billion.
The Travel & Tourism Industry.

Historically, the industry has been an early adopter of new technologies, for instance Computer Reservation systems (CRS). As technology becomes more pervasive, traditional consumers begin to use tools formerly reserved for travel professionals. In the case of CRS, consumers who have access to similar systems through their home computers and open networks can now take over some functions traditionally performed by travel agents.

Some other trends affecting the travel & tourism industry are:

· Code-sharing agreements between business partners
· Scheduling and marketing pacts between top airlines
· Consolidations/Mergers/Acquisitions
· Commission capping by airlines
· Intermodal transportation
· Privatisation of airlines and airports
· Outsourcing (legal, financial, consultants, IT etc services)
· Wireless Travel Service (joint project Delta/IBM/Modern Media Poppe Tyson)
· Travel Superstores; offering everything from luggage to guidebooks to full reservations under one roof. Ex TravelFest Superstores.
· Green Travel; 83% of travellers are inclined to support “green” travel companies and are willing to spend on average 6.2% more for travel services and products provided by environmentally responsible travel suppliers.
· 20% of all business trips include two household members, 28% included some time for pleasure travel and 38% included an overnight weekend stay.
