It is time to join forces to strengthen our global network
We are all going through very difficult times, both personally and businesswise. We are experiencing an unprecedented crisis, which therefore also requires exceptional measures to be taken.

This crisis is affecting our Tourism industry in a dramatic way.

In these difficult times, it is more important than ever to remain connected and united.

Skål International wants to provide as much support as possible to our members and we are working on a contingency plan:

We have updated our website and have included links to reliable information. You will find a banner at the top of our platform, where you will have easy access to relevant news from international organisations and institutions, as well as the latest news from Skål International in this regard.

We encourage those who have not yet visited the new platform to log in to the Members’ area of the Skål International website, to access the benefits and update their profile. If you are not sure which is your e-mail address to log in, please write to us.

Skål International, as an Affiliate member of the UNWTO, continues to work closely with this organisation. We belong to the Board of Directors of the Affiliate Members, which is in permanent contact with the World Health Organization (WHO) to evaluate possible measures and collaborative responses to the crisis caused by COVID-19.

We have received many queries from members, asking what the Florimond Volckaert Fund’s policy will be in the face of this exceptional crisis. We have, therefore, expressed this concern to the Trustees and we are pending to receive the response. We will soon inform our members about it.

We will soon organise a webinar with all the National and Area Presidents of our organisation. The purpose will be to get a feedback on the current situation in each country and to evaluate possible measures for action.

Once the peak of this crisis has passed, the Tourism industry will need to recover quickly. Companies will need to be prepared to know how to mitigate the effects in the short and medium term.

For this reason, we are working to include in the new platform a space where you will be able to find valuable professional information to apply to your business or company. We have many members who work in the education field or are consultants, and we are sure that they would be able to share valuable material for free that could be useful and helpful to all.

In these times of global crisis, it is more necessary than ever to reinvent ourselves and strengthen our professional skills. We will soon report on how it will be possible to share this training material.

We will also organise free webinars with relevant experts and leaders from the Tourism industry. Being well informed will help us all make better decisions. We will soon be sending out more details on dates and topics.

Together and united within our organisation, we will make the task of rebuilding our industry easier and more bearable.

On the positive side, the Tourism market is ‘very agile and flexible’, so once the uncertainty that now surrounds the coronavirus is cleared, recovery could be quick.

We will keep you informed at all times.

On behalf of the Executive Board, thank you for your continued support as we go through this challenge together, and we hope you all remain safe and sound.

Skål!
