The past one year was a test for survival of the fittest, proactive and wide open minders and those who actually looks beyond just short term goals but prepare for a longer-term revival. As the world order kept changing from an overload of misinformation, TravTalk Middle East ensured that the right message and information was passed on to the trade partners which in turn benefitted in their research and dissemination of information.
