The Covid-19 crises brought corporate travel to a standstill, countries around the world closed their borders. Long periods of enforced quarantine no longer made business travel a viable option. Fortunately, virtual meetings were able to take up some of the slack.
Despite the relative success of doing business online, there do appear to be some green shoots for business travel. Many industries still see the innate value in face-to-face meetings, conferences and tradeshows. Although the return to corporate travel may be slow, as many businesses make a hybrid return to the office, travelling for work may become more frequent again in 2022.
