The language and educational travel sector is going through major disruption due to Covid-19. It is with a spirit of collaboration and free exchange of information that ALTO conducted a research in July 2020 followed up by a series of Regional Panel discussions around the world to discuss the impact of the pandemic and highlight key issues that need to be addressed in order to establish new strategies, ways of working together, and best practice for the future. The Future of Adult Language Travel: 2020 and Beyond is available on the ALTO webpage.

Facing or already deep into the second wave of Covid-19 depending on which part of the world you’re based in, we felt that it was important to re-assess the summer projections and get a realistic picture about the financial sustainability of businesses in the international education industry. Therefore, we created the ALTO Industry Pulse Q4 2020 survey in October 2020 and once again invited all industry players – extending the scope to associations and service providers – ALTO members and non-members to help us create a useful tool for all stakeholders, helping them make better informed business decisions. We hope to continue the work quarterly, provided there’s enough interest and engagement from our friends and colleagues in the industry.

Thank you for your support, please read the ALTO Industry Pulse Q4 2020 report below and feel free to share it with anyone who works in our industry. 

Kind regards, Reka
