Executive Forum: Evolution of Family Travelling in China and the Impact of Digitalization of Travel

Dear Friends of CEIBS, 

Please join us for our upcoming CEIBS Executive Forum on November 26, 2019 with Mr. Xavier Desaulles, CEO of Club Med APAC Markets, who will give a lecture on the Evolution of Family Travelling in China and the Impact of Digitalization of Travel.

The travel industry in China has been booming in recent years and family travelling is one of the industry's newest trends. As a global leader in tourism with more than 70 resorts in about 30 countries, Club Med entered the Chinese mainland market in 2003 and has been bringing happiness to its customers ever since. Club Med now wants to continue their journey in China with their Club Med Premium All-inclusive resorts, Club Med Exclusive resorts and Club Med Joyview resorts – all tailor-made products for China. Meanwhile, digitalisation is a major part of the company’s global strategy and Club Med strongly believes it will bring brand new experiences to travel. As Club Med’s founders said, the goal of life is to be happy, the place to be happy is here and the time to be happy is now. Club Med hopes customers can bring home more than memories.
