Remote work is here to stay and will have a dramatic impact on the travel industry as Americans rethink their relationship between work and travel.
The pandemic has shifted how we live, work, and travel. Can it ever go back to the way it was? We think not. Skift Research’s latest report examines how the rise of remote work and digital nomads will have dramatic ripple effects across the travel industry.
Digital nomads were a niche community prior to the pandemic, but we believe this full-time travel lifestyle is poised to go mainstream and bring significant dollars with it.
This report examines current trends in remote work and what it means for the travel industry. To gain a deeper understanding of how big the potential addressable market is, we select the U.S. for a case study of quantifying the market size and monetary value. We also provide recommendations for travel companies seeking to tap into this growing population.
