Industry Forecast

This December, Leisure Group Travel spotlights the group travel market and tackles some of the industry’s biggest questions. LGT interviews some of the country’s top tour operators and gains valuable insight on how planners can thrive during and after the pandemic, what lies ahead for group travel in 2022 and where the tourism industry is headed.

LGT also pays a visit to Tennessee, where we discover some off-the-beaten-path attractions; Maryland, where we share fun tales from Chesapeake Bay communities; and we even make a stop at multiple destinations in picturesque South Dakota.

Joining LGT this month is the 2022 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.

Not to be outdone, LGT unveils the 2022 Indiana Group Tour Planner. This issue features diverse itineraries for every region in the Hoosier State as well as stories covering arts and dining along the Ohio River, Hoosier history and an in-depth look at invigorating state parks.
