Fifth International Conference on Tourism

Business travel is expected to drop 5.6% this year, according to the U.S. Travel Association. Academics who study travel (sweet gig, right?) will convene in Greece to discuss the decline. There are only about 100 of them, so their talk, even with airfare and hotel, is pretty cheap and won’t save global tourism. The U.S. isn’t helping either: Our travel industry could shrink by 450,000 jobs in 2009.
