December 2020 Issue
This December, Leisure Group Travel shines a spotlight on the group travel market as it fights to emerge from the pandemic.
We tackle some of the industry’s biggest questions like how do you operate during Covid-19? What’s ahead for 2021? And where do we go from here? LGT interviews some of the country’s top tour operators and gains valuable insight on how to best move forward while our Group Intentions Survey takes the pulse of tour operators across the United States.
Joining LGT this month is the 2021 edition of Group Travel Destinations, our annual compendium of top domestic tour destinations. As always, GTD showcases regions across the country teeming with attractions from time-honored dinner theaters to gorgeous state parks. We also feature a slew of group-friendly suppliers and showcase what they have to offer in the upcoming year and beyond.
Last, but certainly not least, we roll out the 2021 Indiana Group Tour Planner, featuring diverse itineraries for every region in the Hoosier State as well as features covering outdoor art, botanical gardens, roadside attractions and Indiana’s close-ups on the Silver Screen.
