About the Webinar
The South Carolina Nature-Based Tourism Association is pleased to offer a webinar with Simon Hudson, travel industry consultant, tourism professor at the University of South Carolina, and author of “COVID-19 & Travel:  Impacts, Responses and Outcomes.” 

Please join us on November 9 at 2:00 p.m. for a presentation by Dr. Hudson where he will be discussing the devastating impact that COVID-19 has had on the tourism and hospitality sector, and how this has impacted nature-based tourism. He will explain what those in the nature-based tourism sector are doing – or should be doing – to survive, and make predictions as to what the future might look like for individuals or organizations in South Carolina that are dependent on nature-based tourism.
