Tourism Management Director Discusses Holiday Travel with CTV News Channel

Dr. Statia Eliot

Dr. Statia Eliot, a professor in the Gordon S. Lang School of Business and Economics, appeared on CTV News Channel to discuss the changing rules on COVID-19 testing and vaccination status for travellers ahead of the holiday season.

The director of the School of Hospitality, Food and Tourism Management said the new rules are confusing for travellers and dissuading some travel “at a time when the industry is just starting to get back on its feet again.”

Eliot researches all aspects of tourism marketing, with a focus on tourism destination image and place branding, and contemporary issues such as e-marketing.
