A new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between Temasek Polytechnic (TP) and National Association of Travel Agents Singapore (NATAS) in order to excel in the Travel Industry.
The Humanities and Social Sciences schools of TPs will come together and join their hands in researching the requirements of older travellers.
The research process begins with the data collection ad hence the the travel companies will be contacted for this.After examining the data, the same will be shared in conferences.
The main aim is to get deep knowledge on the latest travel trends of people having age greater than 50 years and hence provide them better services according to their requirements.
Some of the results have come from US and Europe and it has been concluded that the people of age 50 and more travel more and the unfortunate point to note that they are not being catered. Travel companies make arrangements according to young generation.
Singapore – as one of the fastest ageing nations and it will be oldest by 2050, and to prove this, both NATAS and TP have joined hands and want to explore the Silver Travel Industry.
To reap the benefits of this Silver Travel Industry, NATAS will work with students of TP who have interest in travel and hence work for the growth of this industry. Also NATAS will give prizes to students who have given their best and will also provide them scholarships with training programs.
