"Get moving now more of WTM nice I'm really debating whether or not to do this and I understand why I don't know if people are driving more radically right now because they know there's less traffic on the roads and I recognize that the radic driving is not exactly a new phenomenon to this city and to you know portions of the interstate specifically that's sad again no statistical information no hard data to back this up anecdotally because on Monday nights Monday nights I was here and right before the show was over somebody texted him and said it sure feels like cars or drive in a lot faster on the interstate now what they they think that the cops have bigger things to worry about shares department is bigger things to worry about there's fewer cars out there so let's just do what we want to do and I kind of I kind of they're just shrugged it off well then on Monday night I drove home and I'm going it's fifty five right and I'm going sixty five I like to be that ten eleven over here sh I think about nine or ten AM okay and I was passed by at least four or five cars on the track down forty three one of them I had to be going a hundred miles an hour had to be one hundred miles there's no way that vehicle was not going about twenty five thirty miles an hour faster than I was so that got me thinking and then last night yesterday Tuesday afternoon driving in I noticed a couple last night didn't see somebody going a hundred but didn't notice people going a little bit faster than I was I was talking to somebody on the phone and I said is there something wrong with my speedometer I mean it says I'm going sixty five but I have been passed here on the interstate as if it's nobody's business I mean am I really going sixty five maybe that it's broken I'm only going fifty five then this afternoon three thirty in the afternoon and again fifty five the speed limit I'm going to route sixty five because there aren't a lot of cars out there so the flow of traffic is about sixty five I'm going with the flow of traffic and there are cars weaving in and out of so I'm gonna throw this open and I realize this is unscientific as anything on the radio will ever get but have you noticed in the last couple of days anecdotal tales they are but have you noticed that some drivers are taken particular liberties that they otherwise wouldn't now I recognize that this city does have an issue with erratic driving out of control driving speeding and it's been that way for a while we've talked about it and address it number of times and and dumb the chief for the share of have as well and it's gotten better since the last regime if you ask me but real quickly here eight five five six one six one six twenty eight five five six one six one six twenty have you noticed vehicles going faster on the interstate because I have I don't know here's the thing I don't know if I'm just talking everything up too well this is either going to be now that roads are more open and the traffic more flea free flowing or is it just a day ending in Y. and that's how most of the roads are in Milwaukee I don't know so just as I am now I recognize also there are fewer of us on the roads so many of you are going Scot I don't know I've been stuck in my house since well since the stay at home got into place or since I was told to stay home by my employer so I haven't been in my car I haven't been on the roads but if you have real quickly eight five five six one six one six twenty tell me I'm wrong but if you notice this as well we'll continue this to monitor.

Sustainable Travel: The Hard Truth with Lucy Siegle

"Twenty nineteen year in which the travel industry found itself in the spotlight over its role in contributing to climate change tourists now more aware than ever before the environmental cost of air travel. Tourism contributes around five percent of greenhouse gases according to the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership at travel alone contributes to two point five percent of global emissions and these predictions suggest that these stats likely to triple by twenty fifty. If important changes are not maids however the tourism industry is responding in many diverse ways. For example the Guardian Travel Section now primarily focuses on destinations. That can be reached without the use of planes. Easyjet will carbon offset all flights by the end of twenty twenty initiatives such as green tourism? Have seen a leap in membership and provide hoteliers with a green check meter to promote more responsible tourism practices and global travel as a certainly more environmentally aware. Now environmental issues. I have to admit their uncomfortable truths for us in the travel industry so today we're taking the bull by the horns as it were and we're asking. Chiyo hey to tell us just how bad it is and also what we can do about it so environment environmental impact on travel. I think it's very good but the travel industry is trying to tackle this head on but I think we've also got some uncomfortable truths to face and in facing those uncomfortable truths. Hopefully we can make some headway into doing some stuff about it. But how in your opinion how? How bad is the travel industry for the world? How bad is the travel industry? Well if you look at some who just start with the elephant in the room so we look aviation you can say that aviation has a small part of the climate change pie in the comes in four percent. Something like that four percent. You might say well you know. In fact I've heard it said well PSA quivalent to say the fashion industry or something like that but we're in a very serious situation. Everyone's mentioned this to you. We all have to decarbonised really rapidly. So it doesn't matter. What your slice of the Pie is he needs to be getting it to zero. Unfortunately and aviation is one of the ones that's increasing and increasing exponentially so we could be seeing like a quarter of the world's carbon budget used by aviation in the very near future and that's not acceptable. Because you look at the amount of people that fly so I think in the UK. It's something like fifteen percent of the population tastes seventy five percent of the flights. Something like that. Probably most of them by me mainly you. Yes exactly so. It's not fair. Is it that all of that. Carbon budget should be used in that way so that that is the really really big existential and the media issue for the travel and tourism industry is that it's predicated on flights which have become cheaper and all the rest of it and then you get into a very interesting territory about offsetting and where we are now. How much needs to help and is by so? You really can't get very far. Ironically when we're talking about travel without coming across a very difficult brick wall I know this is the lady bird version of environmental issues but reminded y need to decarbonised. Oh so yeah so we are in. The era of climate crisis is not the only crisis that's affecting the bias fairs. We call the planet We also in the age of extinction. loss say rapid extinction loss of species. And we've got lots of different pressures. So the oceans absorbed ninety percent of of heat and a report came out a couple of weeks ago so that was in January February and it was irreputable evidence that the planet is is is warming because you can test the atmosphere will time. There's lots of different factors which might account for the heating when it comes to the oceans that is a controlled experiment ladies and gentlemen and we had the hottest oceans on record since records began and it is equivalent to exploding thousands of Hiroshima bombs in the ocean. That's the amount of energy and he is now in the ocean and this affects all sorts of things so for people in the UK who only really like one sort of fish which is called it means that if the oceans warm around the UK the COD will swim off to colder climes. And they all go to the Baltic states and we can't get any cards so it has a knock-on effects like that but it is proof incontrovertible evidence that the world is warming and a warming world brings with it a lot of problems including higher incidences of diseases oceans rising icecaps melting fires that burn hotter and are more widespread as we've seen in Australia etc etc etc so Greta Thambo says this so I'm GonNa say it but but if you were saying it I by the way she seems to have a wide for you have a great plot has exploded but you you were saying say funny because it's almost anniversary of me-meeting Greta Thornburg in Davos upper mountain and I said to my friend. This is absolutely legendary this point while. I don't think she's going to catch them did you. My friend resigned. I don't know I think she might anyway like two days later. Thirty two thousand kids marched in Belgium for Friday's for the future though is already regretting. Why statement and she just seems so as literally. Mitch Leigh Small. Once more young men conscious actually small. She's actually small and she's very softly spoken very unassuming and yeah. I mean what a presence will an accident force and I really care myself. I squandered that did you. Did you feel something around are no? That sounds ridiculous but people that I've got that power to to have an impact on so many people often do when they walk into the room. Yeah think so. I think I was just being very defensive about what this kid you know. I've been doing this for. Aj's join the queue. Hello but I also now you'll court so you were just about to court for a minute. Yes she's incredibly powerful force and she. I remember her face and her being rather than another thing. That's quite disarming if you spend time around High Profile people with this charisma that quite jazz Hans. She's not just handsome toll so I think I just took a while to understand what she was bringing But she's very very good and what I was going to save it. She says a lot of people. Ask Me and when is the climate crisis going to be over? It's not a moment. It is an era. This is the reality so once you accept that of the reality the climate era. What are you going to do about it? But we can't we can't. We're not GONNA stop traveling. People are not going to stop traveling for fun for work. The world is a very a much smaller place. You might say well people might have to but look what's happened this week. The Corona virus so. This plane's not taking off from China China is basically closed. Which is so. They'll be kind of carbon win for that in a way because they'll be some fear emissions. We're in a numbers game now. So you go to you. Go to look at these things but you know there's an example very very recently where we might say. We're not going to travel. But actually you're not gonNA travel so there's a number scenarios that might happen where you went to travel so what's difficult. The moment is that it's just all on us making the decision not to travel and you may have children who are very inspired by Greta. You might be parents. Have I inspired by Greta? Making a decision to take a train journey instead of Dumping on the plane and these are really interesting. Personal kind of points of maneuver and negotiation at the moment within families and stuff like that and it will be very interesting to see how the travel industry which. I'm sure I shouldn't talk about as if it's a big homogenized thing 'cause I know it's very nuanced different parts of it but they've got to kind of surf this weird moment with us really and we have got to come up with more inventive products. We've got to come up with more different ways of doing things we've got to look at some tough

"Negative that you'd like to say infrastructure of too much traffic going through your nice ask areas. I'm always thinking positive but Gerry. You didn't experience in Jordan but generally speaking for the nation's that's it's always they are labeled as a film destinations as an advice. Just don't bring more people to your sites over to resemble the ruin the sites and maybe there destroy the ecosystem so this advice because now let me give you an example in Petra UNESCO sites we have a relationship that it's not allowed daily basis to have more than three thousand visitors per day because Jain at San we have this ignatius we stick to that to preserve the Decide itself so we have very strict regulations would then decide itself maybe the message of diplomats you mentioned a few labor this nation that connected with a terrorism or maybe for the poverty or maybe something negative related to a story co branded and you add the country name with a this will affect negatively. The country saw the script writers. And even the congratulations are the regulators that reviewing the scripts to make sure that they will not mention the name of the country and to be built dealt with the story the story within just to be careful. Enjoy the man. We didn't witness that because they feature Joe than the our experience in a very nice way unique and they're out of this world especially in Mars and showing the let's say Osprey Keleti of Jordanians and one more thing one of the directors told me something very strange that the lens of the camera loves the Jordanian weather a two. Why because they don't have the humidity so they don't eat for doing the filtering or doing the montage for the the scenes because the we have Pity Nice weather in Jordan. There's no humidity over the the comment that needs more dust so there is no extra worked for the technicians to to filter. The pictures edged the awesome. That so many speaking I I didn't hear about the negative impact of the film in the nation but this is a device for the future not to go for more than it says the capacity that side suit just will ruin the ecosystem. Oh it's a huge problem. Tourism is obviously a whole other topic. But it's a huge huge problem is something we all irresponsibly. As travel industry. People do need to keep an eye on call and if you had any negative impacts from filming parts copy not not not that I can recall. Certainly the comments of my colleagues are we would take on board and I WANNA make sure that the script was in sync with what we as the nature of the Caribbean would want to do so. That's one area that we would be Cautious of and be careful about The other thing thing obviously would be the over capacity. We do have a UNESCO World Heritage site and a number of sites and attractions which are in keeping with our branding. And so we want to make. I'm sure that the carrying capacity was was was upheld and then in keeping with what it is that we have to offer to the film which are the wide it open spaces and particularly nice natural sets. We would make sure that in discussion amongst beforehand that these are things that that we're taking into account the one thing that maybe we'll get into later is Maybe how we could have. Maybe how we we could have created more of a positive impact of the films coming and being filmed on the island but much like we don't want to be associated with the script if it's negative of course we want to be associated with it if it's positive and sometimes you don't have the resources to do that all right to to to positively exploit the affiliation with the the film so not a negative. Maybe a missed opportunity is one of the things that we have to be mindful of as well and make sure we have that we have that in the agreement agreement and contract and understanding because sometimes when you run into certain franchises. They're fairly protective of what it is that you can and can't do but we need to be mindful mindful of how we of how we have the destination benefit from these sorts of It's interesting isn't it. Because I think even the ulcer of old adage of all publicity is good publicity is actually not a bad thing when you think of something like knock as you know that. That's Columbia didn't shine a great light on it at all but it's done it's actually done some good things or fatories. People People A- a token which segues actually nicely into the into the tourism side of does. That's what we hope. Isn't it that the film is going to drive. Obviously going to bring money and investment and jobs but we hope also as tourism tourism as that. It's going to drive tourism. Have you noticed. An increase in tourism is tangible as a result of the bond movies and NFL projects. I it's it's always hard to directly measure the The direct impact from a tourist arrivals perspective. And so one of the one of the upsides of this particular project with bond that we have landed on is the fact that because we have such a long storied history having done Bond films previously having so much heritage with Ian Fleming Golan leading to this new bond project. is that we have decided to create a legacy project in creating Montreal in Jamaica for a visit us to be able to you to explore or to come to Jamaica to explore To see the places things people you know artifacts artifacts of the film In so many in some cases creating some of the sets so that it becomes part of the the the legacy of ought to be able to curate experiences that are directly related to having either seen the film here about the film knowing that it was filled in Jamaica on want to be part of that experience. What I will do that is give us a more measurable approach approach to to connect the lower and impact of of of a bond to the connection to Jamaica And then therefore measure. You know In a more meaningful way You know if people are actually if it's in the mind that people are asking for it to are paying to do you know how it is an attraction then it becomes an experience that we could put against a particular thing but to to to you know will to embellish the point even more the our history of Hollywood has been one and that is well documented Ho Stella got her groove back was part filmed in Jamaica. Cocktails mentioned earlier with Tom Cruise was filmed in Jamaica. The nine hundred ninety nine hard Was Filling in Jamaica Nineteen seventy-two doctorinal was Jamaica. Nineteen sixty two You know there's been a recent project Will Smith spearheaded Film called Sprinter. which does the story of a Jamaican sprinter somewhat? In in. In the Moldovan. Mold that that he spearheaded. Will Smith it spearheaded. With this company. To underwrite the production of the film With a Jamaican producer storm soldier. You know which has done extremely yeah well in the International Space and so when you when you put it all into context I suppose it is easy to understand that we are able to to pitch the destination from a tourism perspective. Against the fact that we've been able to attract act some of these large Hollywood films and been able to demonstrate and illustrate parts on parcels of Jamaica on a film film stage for such a long time that it becomes an or an aspiration for travelers to want to see what this is. All all the boats and this place that heard about in films are sealing films so is part of our toolkit of of of marketing to ensure that back when we speak about things that are different in Jimmy than most other places is the fact that you've you've seen it you've tasted the public experience it sold. May I feel like going to Jamaica right now sipping cocktails at some great as yours. More as a smaller destination nation is it more quantifiable. The influx of tourists has been an influx of tourist. Yes M. S. N.. Donovan was saying it's it's so difficult to really quantify hi the impact in terms of visitor numbers in terms of value to the economy and we thought different attempts without as well and our recent figures that we gathered for two thousand eighteen indicating that one in six visitors to Northern Ireland coming because they want to visit those locations where game of thrones was filmed. And and where a really supposed. With game of thrones. The situation is that there is a die hard fan base. It's global and these guys are highly motivated to walk in the footsteps of their favorite stars to see for those climatic and striking scenes were filmed. So they are a highly motivated and Apprai- took us a bit of time to respond to understand that actually people are coming here to see this. Maybe took one or the two of the more entrepreneurial tourism operators to identify this demand to respond to it and then we did a bit of a cop shop and because of breath. Game of thrones taking ten years to them the state this eight series at we have the time to build really positive and trusting relationship with the production company opening with HBO and that has allowed us to do so many things to first of all promote to ourselves. As game of thrones territory which is going either. Globally hopefully and the association between Northern Ireland and game of thrones is now a greater awareness and buying on and people are coming and they're also becoming because we've worked with the industry to layer the visitor experience so people not only are the locations which are twenty six and but they're able to immerse themselves in the show. They're able to be guided by guides. Who are extras on the show? who gives them snippets of insights? And they're getting more and more immersed in the show they're able to get costume adopt where the clock speed Jon Snow for today and these things are all adding to the to that X.. immersive and truly authentic experience. And and so all this is adding and of course. Social media is enormous in terms of promoting. What everybody's doing all those bragging points are happening on Pe- more and more people are coming so certainly certainly we are witnessing a real influx of visitors because of that high interest in game of thrones? Something the most interesting thing about that is. It wasn't anticipated. You took a chance. Ten years ago a small pilot and they absolutely it's that phenomenon that we we never guessed duct Abbott have you seen. Is it tangible enjoyable. The influx of tourists. How how do you quantify? Have you seen an uptick in tourist seething. Actually you can't measure the direct say action affected Dodig be the number the growth of the tourism. But's it's one of the factors that help and maybe give you more exposure. Oh you're in marketing when you brand the country with the deferment just feature the local experiences of the kinds ends of Jordan. Let's say and these movies but you can you can tell when the there's a high demand on the EH transparent bubbles and why Doron which is telling the story of the experience of the Martian that you are in the Mars so we have. I can't measure the number of investments is taking place just to have this kind of tense like the bubbles does that. You can do the star gazing at night and have this the Martian experience. I I can I can. I can just quantify the number of investments but generally speaking now Jordan witnessed a double digits growth for the past two years years because of different factors. The low cost carriers like Easyjet Ryanair opening a new. Who is to do this? You can't see this to impact on the tourism. Also the the.

"Of hosting major broadcast productions including fleeting TV series. Three two blockbuster films and discuss any over these benefits now. I've got a great panel hair as I said and I'm going to be asking our panelists list to introduce themselves one by one. Perhaps sale in Alabama about what's films you've hosted or TV productions hosted in your destinations are two who introductions for myself today. I'm bond James Bond's nobody Donovan. White Director of tourism for Jamaica and and we have had the good fortune of over the years working with a number of blockbuster films have been shot on location in Jamaica or part filmed in Jamaica the most recent one obviously is the new bond that is to be premiered next April No time to die. The this is part of a long tradition of hosting bond films in Jamaica. The first bond doctor no it was actually shot on location in Jamaica and Ian Fleming has a long history of having written several of the bond films in Jamaica. The golden eye resort so we have a story street with the Bond Institute and we were able to. Oh you know. Through a number of initiatives encourage and indeed We want the opportunity to to host bond again for for twenty twenty. So we're very happy beyond that we've done in the past global films like harder they come in nineteen seventy-two do we jimmy cliff as a WHO's a renown reggae performer as the star for that film We've had cocktails with Tom Cruise. We've got Konterman. We've had recently We've had several Hollywood Portas who have done scenes for their films in Jamaica. So we we believe we. We've we've done well in the area and I'm interested to talk about more about the preparation business side of of hosting film in your country. Jeez steals from northern islands. And obviously a little a little bit different to Jamaica but still justice special many ways. Tell us a little bit about yourself. The destination as a film location destination of of course yes. I'm from chirs. Northern Ireland the National Organization for Tourism and certainly tourism is a growth sector contributing about one million into our economy and screen. Tourism has become increasingly important to our tourism strategy over the years. We've hosted many eh large-scale films and TV productions and but certainly the production of game of thrones has been without a dive transforms for our screen tourism industry astray and for the film industry to and in two thousand and nine Northern Ireland screen took a real risk and invested significantly secondly in the pilot show off game of thrones and who would have thought that it has become the global phenomena that it is today and that we would have been the principal the filming location for decades so we've worked with partners and to really maximize the tourism opportunity. I'm we've worked with the industry me to develop innovative and engage visitor experiences and of course with the blessing we've been able to promote Northern Ireland as game of thrones territory territory in our international marketing campaigns. So we've been on an amazing journey on one that I'm happy and delighted to share with you today. We we have a lot of number of other productions suctions at the moment with Dublin murders which is predominantly in the north of Ireland. And of course everybody enjoys a good sense of humor from dairy girls screened in In dairy so thank you very much lovely thank you. I'm looking forward to asking you about in more detail. About game of thrones and how because you didn't expect it was going to be such a big deal how the actually affected people but will get round to that Dr Abed Jordan. Please tell us who you are in a bit about your destination in relation to fill so. I'm the managing director Jordan Tourism Board as a destination. I think we have back. Go back to his city to Indiana Jones. Said Ed the first movie that the Petra Indiana Jones on Lawrence of Arabia and we continue new featuring Jordan has this the nation on recently. We just they finished with the star. Wars and Jordan and Aladdin took place Sir Jordan especially in serum and part of transformers Also enjoyed actually as as the country has a destination Jordan as a as a sample of continents. We had a toll so denote you have the divorce decree the reports. You have all the man the capital you have desserts and deceased so no need to move while the crew to who just to change the this nation so small country can offer an can't cater for the film industry. One of the campaigns. That happened happened here in the UK when they found the Martian the margin was in Iran. Because what looks like the Mars so that campaign was. It's all within the London buses where we have equal brand the the problem with Jordan. It's five million miles to go to Mars. Where in five dollars could be in Jordan while they're on the same place so we have now the experience of their and the Martian and ny around we can see the the house or the the The the bubbles were looks like the movie tourists are enjoying an experiencing experiencing the the Martian experience and we. I think we are a lot of firms in the pipeline. I think we will announce it to lots of people will probably excited about the new star. Wars film an unfair actually. They're very exciting Colin. Why didn't you tell us a little bit about yourself? I'm the destination in relation to fields. Wonderful Colin Pyper. CEO and directive towards them for the island of Dominika Happy to be here and be part of this panel. Our history with the film has gone back aways starting with our relationship with the The author from the UK. Gene Reese who has history with Dominique and one of the first productions to come out of dominika would have been the orchid house but most recently We've been fortunate to attract uh some from Hollywood and so the the Disney production. The pirates of the Caribbean is is our claim to fame much. Like you have the bond series we had the second and third edition of those films Film Dominika so a number of spots. Dominique Nika even today are being utilized as part of our tourism product. So from that came certainly economic spin off as you would imagine imagine and also came kind of a training of local people to be a part of Film Industry who have gone on themselves to who provide to generate content and capture Dominico on film and and be able to distribute that worldwide. So we've also done a number of productions for the Discovery Channel Out of The UK Programs like naked and afraid and some of these sorts of things so We're looking for nominee where we're promoting DOMINIKA certainly as a location for film but also for TV productions documentaries and for still images as well. Well let's start from the very beginning. When a film comes wants to your destination I mean the hope is that it brings revenue the tax revenue? There's also local business revenue. The hope is it the people are employed. There's jokes out. Do you see that. Immediate impact in terms of jobs and infrastructure improvements. When they come on site when there? Yeah I think it actually starts before because it's it's it does take quite a bit of thinking planning strategizing understanding of the different levers to pull to make some of those things happen. You know the it's usually a a discussion with the with the highest level of government that then filters through the various areas of of importance. What I call it? A film industry commerce finance so it goes through almost the the rudiments of government. Then depending on how your government destruction it may have to go all the way to your cabinet and parliament to get approval because it usually comes at a cost. But they're not cost is part of what you call a suppose in business capital because because the spin off is what you get the spin off you get his from you. Know being able to provide The the film crews he's In the case of where this needed being able to provide talent from some of or universities in in Jamaica actually turns out people in the film training institute side of things Where we we saw some of our actors are born? We have a very very active theater. Seen in Jamaica where knots of actors and actresses of the and then you have people from the film industry who when there is need to create great film scenes will calm undo. Their recruiting drive sake does create a bit of an uplift From an economic standpoint through the various industries that impacts so unemployment side people who work on the technical side but also on the in front of the camera but also all of the trade pieces that fit into the location location scenes on the industry that it creates for that for example in the case of a tremendous amount of the scenery scenery. That was shot in Jamaica for no time to die was done in Portland which is one of or marketed towards destinations. And there were there. Were air of of Portland that were enshrined than shown as part of the film that from a marketing perspective. You can't pay for that. In terms of buying advertising you could never afford to buy advertising for that thought dot goes into a film that is then cascaded across the world in two hundred three hundred plus countries That you know billions of people it gets to see so the knock on effect is is one of understanding first of all was the level of investment that is required to make it work for the produces uses but also what is the return on investment as a destination to the various sectors economists within your space that benefits from it. And they're paying. You're not salon. Say you combine that level of that advertising. They're actually paying absolutely and it's great. It's great to know that they are saying that they do hire local people and not just swimming in absolute limit that we we certainly benefited from from from that they actually recruited for productivity out of Jamaica Jamaica's had stored history in the business of production because when it sports film or drama series or whatever we've been able to provide talent taveras production hoses especially out of north of us. Hollywood dot the have done well and therefore stitch for when movie makers come calling there is ready talent available for them to call. That's wonderful and we'll talk about legacy towards the end but it's wonderful people getting that first job in media you know even as an intern and hopefully they're actually paying them as well as actually often the first step stacked getting your career. You've got something on your way to get you. The next opened the next door at Judah if you noticed you although all the jobs of the literally jobs for go people absolutely the sort of film industry has really been bubbling away for a lot of years producing some really good stuff but our our industry and film crew often have to go outside Northern Ireland to get work so with the experience in some of the longevity of the work that was involved. With game of thrones over ten in years not really has essentially built up a whole new tourism industry and made a sustainable and also developed this incredible skills-based based on such a high end production. TV show and so it has been absolutely amazing and the commissioners would help fund a lot of of the productions elections and part of their criteria would be that they use the local industry to the US the film crew that are available and the talent that's available in Northern Ireland. And we also have a very large extras Northern Ireland extras so for those big scenes are for individual characters. We have a real resource in Northern Ireland so again. The benefits are huge creating employment and sustaining. That employment has really been remarkable tap in terms of jobs. You you know. Has It provided local jobs producer has it has the infrastructure. Being worked on films are taking place in the round which is not a set up as I'm imagining they're having to bring in equipment has it generated work. It was the infrastructure that what happened definite at the positive impact from the Telemann dusty. The beginning is by bringing the decision. Makers when you just it hosts the producers just to show them that it's the nation when they they have to see to believe because when you host the let's say crew or looser from from a national like Hollywood Bollywood or any any company that doing this kind of big firms they they've found that there is a big paternity to have their investment or to tell these nations the impact was We have a real paradigm shifts and the film industry in Jordan in terms of creating jobs. Give you an example that the local communities the wider on benefited from the film industry. Now I can see. We have three thousand employees well trained to deal with the TV review productive producers in Durham from the local community in terms of the riding horses catering technicians and also because 'cause people endured and the highly directors. Now we have these ten professional. Derek has already graduated from from from from Disney. I need from from Hollywood or the will train so we have the capacity to host on corporate directly with the book big production. They don't need to flow to to bring their the directors from from from from London. Let's say or from Korea from Japan to be part of the protection we have it. We have the equipment we have the cameras and we have all the set a needed four film production Jordan. And that's why we have the original vision. We have ultimate commission. They're taking care of the film industry production Jordan before training capacity-building the building and how to deal with such big mega-projects impacting tours was very clear attempts champs where they give you an example when the star wars just just stayed in Jordan for one month. All the hotels was fully booked they booked although hotels and ACA CUPPA and that's been affected the daily life of the Jordanians that day hire more more more more appraised just to face peace and cater for the needs of this kind of production that's why the government provided some incentives for the sad.

"Good morning. My name's Matt's run heat to travel, which is a trouble with Zoe Joel blog, we'd been using Instagram full. A few years, and we've not certainly in the past year or so that growing our Wiggins is becoming increasingly difficult. So I was wondering. Whether there were any plans to improve organic discovery supplementary question. So that would be all there any plans to open up features current restricted to those with higher. Follow numbers, for example, swipe up on stories. So. So I suppose with again the profit from becoming busier it's becoming harder. There's more and more bronze you're competing, but more and more bronze in in your space and against your audience. So maybe that's that's why is it organic. It's organic followers. You're you're talking about. Yeah. And so this similar happens on and on Facebook in the in the past. So it's probably it's probably similar. It's happen. It becomes it's a more competitive spice note because there's more there's more happening. I suppose with the likes what I would always advise customers. Again, Mark you probably a few years ago. I was like guys travel are injured opting Instagram as quickly as they should be people were very fixation Facebook, I suppose ITT it's an opportunity stories. You know, there's a lot of life. I was I would say keep if you if you can stay ahead of the trends in terms of what's what how how consumers are how users are consuming our forms. I think that's everyday good way to kind of stay in that organic spice. Am for longer would be. Great. So I think there was somebody in the in the gloom over the buck who had a question as well. Just on the edge there if they can put their hand up again. Thank you. Hi, my name's Dan, I work on branding media side. And my question is obviously the last year we've seen a big rice in my influences. Any kind of comes back to the disclosure question of you have to have a certain amount of followers to disclose the pay partnerships.

"They don't wanna spend a dollar on Facebook with ace if getting a return on investment or a conversion for them. So there is only so without a mind, they're they're very very very very strict in terms of how they spend their money on what they spend it on. They wouldn't be spending their money with us and advertising with us. If it wasn't working. So definitely we we've examples in the converse. Vice of people of bronze just only Instagram only Browns who've creations their shop front on Instagram. Oh, we feel it really does work. I think it's I think it's about getting your your content your messaging in terms of what what you're USPA is on survive targeting to them as we've we've kind of case studies of how it's it's really delivered business results for for customers. I guess in junior launched topping tunnels, the new in the explore explore essence, so come Bruns appear in that too. I mean, how do you decide who appears in the it's a great great exposure for the for the influences you get into that. But going to get into it takes four at the search explorer. That's m it's very much personalized feed. So again, I think if anyone in the audience is like showed your neighbor if you open your explore top on Instagram. Both your feeds would look extremely different. It's based off what you search and and follow on Instagram, and it's curation personalized you like your new speech. So it's not something. That's you can you can buy into. It's very much am it's very much surfacing kind of content that we feel is relevant to you personally, short publ. So if you're a trouble Brown, the new cope, this amazing image. How do you then connect that to a conversion? So we suppose if you go back to ecommerce as always the first place where are. Platforms kind of build products at scale and insert on Instagram. They shop you the shopping functionality has opened up for and for e-commerce e-commerce based off very much having a product, and you can say if it's a fashion eight last year address in you, can you can and you can I suppose top on us and go directly to the size on purchase address. And that's doesn't exist. Yes. For travel. However, if we look to is suppose travel ads on Facebook evolved, it started off with the the Facebook Facebook ecommerce odds on then we realised this is grace odd. Eunice, however, tells them work for travel because of all the variables that are in place with travel tapes, number of costumers, multiple destinations multiple those multiple of factors that kind of feed into a tropical decision, and but we worked with our product teams and got a shovel product evolved. So again shopping has just launched on Instagram. I would imagine I. You know, into I can't I can't promise this. But I would imagine that it would evolve, and we will learn from ecommerce evolved for travel. Questions from the audience just here..

"But also in terms of 'em as a marketing tool, and I think the thing is with everything when it initially by Kim Asia's probably open to abuse, which may be where people were we're going to kind of knock. It wasn't obvious. I think people have become a lot more savvy in terms of higher. They had they understand social media and influencers working. But also actually transparency is really important tools us we've come with the bronze with content fights to recently. So the pronto contents insights to what. Allows for is the kind of it democratises and the contents that she share Instagram. So if you're paying if Brown's is paying an influence or to be a part of a sponsorship that you can actually see on an insights tool in terms of the reach the frequency the awareness levels that they increase it. There's a bit more that they can no bronze can kind of build it into parsh- their media mix. I'm actually qualify as a form of advertising and reach is what people use inferences four. But also with us. It's it's not perfect. It's just launch put it will start to kind of push a bit more rigor. Uncontrolled arrange and Iran that kind of infants or behavior you already lost week. There was a story in the news about the influence of who wasn't as influential as as you said that he was so maybe we'll help that. But there was some questions in the audience. Do you have your microphone just one plus that down and the rest of you be thinking what you can? Miss them. Back. Several voice we help people grow an instrument coach rose nation. My question was how do you handle negative messaging? That's going around into spam as well. So like things about. And like tiger L fees and. We'll this kind of stuff. I suppose though is a. It's a platform where people with posts content us. I suppose of interest to them, which is not it's not something we. It wouldn't be something I would support. But at the same time, it's not m. We have the ability like on Facebook to reports contents that you find offensive or we have a community operations team that would monitor the platforms kind of anything that would be harmful and or negative to add to users. So we want to keep face or in-space on Instagram, I suppose as positive user experiences possible Bush, again, they are content platforms where people can post contents. I think we have another question over here. Hi, I'm Saudi from experienced Pakistan. So I'm when you start up company, and my audience, predominantly Silverline is kind of the old customers, and I get a lot young all kind of social media companies, you should be inscribed Facebook, and I am, but I always question the value in velvets has pool that Silverline rodents, and whether actually all my funds bet use other marketing tools response that be I suppose that the great thing with the scale of of instruments a platform for your audience are probably there may be nauseous is an as Moscow as maybe some younger demographics. Put definitely they are. They're there. And I think the way the world's going people are becoming more and more digitally savvy and adopting the platforms and all the time, and we see older demographics are adopting our platforms. I'm Ashton acceleration race, I think he is. Custodian seizing your database, and to kind of as a really good seed audience to start to kind of build ice lookalike audiences of of your database is the best place to start. Because again, you don't have to target the whole of the platform. You can talk to in charge of the people you won't talk to you. Data statistics. What does the conversion waiting it? Like. So I often joke with the millennials young Facebook and Instagram a great for window shoppers, but actually for real customer transactions. I question actually, all useful for those tools with the thing is it's a traveler ecommerce in general, are you asking or awesome from business commotion respective that? If I had limited funds, I had to them often strategy am I using that money to an event where I met you facing customer because we get a conversion to a so we'll do I use to Scone social media window, and we'll see a conversion to a cell from a like we well, no not fro probably enough from a like.

I don't if they can be. Wave Home do something. But yes, so if you want to question later on we're just going to let them couple I but the goal is just that you talked about those billion uses fos growing nature of of Instagram where those new uses coming from do roughly cool of the young people. Or is it all of those things it's M so Instagram has become increasingly popular over the last number years on I definitely think and probably the I suppose to help with the log in would Facebook is probably how people and kind of find friends and easily more easily am on the platform. And I suppose with every with everyone person who adopts that they've they've community your friends. So it's just the growth is kind of I suppose with any business the becomes a tipping point. And then it kind of it becomes a moss. Moss reach product. And that's what's happened with Instagram and Facebook, the parent company is a bit of a rough time. Say twenty eight hundred eighty is affected Instagram until and look it's been it's been a tool fear for across the environment. That digital environments privacy is a must of concern for loss of a lot of companies this year. And it's something we take very very seriously, a Facebook and Instagram posts, and it definitely for Instagram. This has been two thousand eighteen has been the year of story. So it's been a very positive year for Instagram the shift to stories has been like on presidential growth within it doubled its growth within six months, and it's just it's showing no signs of slowing down. And as I say, it's probably been the. The quickest shifted behavior as as to adoption to mobile happen too. Few years ago, it's been mass kind of that level of acceleration deduction. And so it's really positive fruits from. And Donald Trump is reviewing made. This little focus on fake news, doesn't he? Look at that in Instagram world. There's a lot of fake news and preps in authentic photographs being posted on Instagram. And we will say about is. That's something that you're trying to to crack down on people's posting things. Actually don't exist in reality. And I think I think the thing is like again, I laugh your audience who here when they first started posting on Instagram use a lot of filters on their photos. I know I just yeah. It was going on probably as as involved, and you become more and you use the platform more stories. The filters are limited. I think there's more, and you probably see a lot more people going hashtag no filter if they have put up a beautiful photograph and gills Anita filter. So I think that everything when the platform I came age people plays range on had very curated content. But I think the stories the casualness of stories has kind of can should I do think there is a trends to kind of with everything this goes one way back towards the hashtag, no no filter. But also like the hash tags acne is normal for you know, it's kind of normalize the people don't look like super early highly airbrushed supermodels all the time. So I think I think the thing is not trend is kind of itself correcting in a way, so people are coming back to more normal pictures, which isn't so a couple of years ago, we had the advertising standards authority speaking on this very stage talking about so you know, what influences should be doing when they're being paid by bronze. And this is one of the things I was saying is that we're going to crack down. On on people unless they put hashtags like add all spun on Instagram post, for example. Do you have any thoughts on that has has happened? Do people even care something. Sponsored I think again again with the platform. It's evolving all the time on influences play such an important role within all of our communities, you know, whether it's a fashion blogger stylist and makeup artist. And you know, people told me destinations from like, there's so many inferences across a broad spectrum Akash brief, and it's really really interesting for in terms of content for end users..

This is a really review at Trump over on Instagram are one of the most highly active users of the platform, they come back on a daily basis at twenty eight as per month, and they follow on average more than others. They really are. They also play on the platform. They they give back to the platform. So it's a really passionate and community on this one that you could grace as I say, the gray partnership between travel and Instagram. We'll just continue and for years to come. So Instagram traveled adventures begin. Thank you very much. Thank.

I have a cool son who's a wellness. She's an amazing job. She is a wellness retreats blogger. So she actually goes, and and these wellness retreats in compares retreats across the world. And every time I see her posts and Instagram. I'm like I most book yoga week away.

So the thing is on on. Instagram, all of these all of these little stories agile to a whole Narus of Iran making memories that you have to share with others, but also to keep for for a lifetime. The other thing is what happens with the this is essentially what was bringing back to. And this is what Instagram's all device it's a smartphone, which you have in your pocket, it's a community of passionate community of like minded people and they're sharing on Instagram. So with this it brings it brings it all together in Instagram, and this is why travel works so so well on Instagram so passions unites people and businesses on Instagram says to say, it's not just about people, you know. But it's also a base brands such Browns and businesses are non reciprocal relationships with not only how by context, which you also have the scale. I'm that's talking about those numbers for a minute. The global community is currently one billion active users. So that's it's a massive number and the growth has been on dancing. It's really really accelerated over the last the last one. But let's break these big numbers. Dan, fish, these five hundred million active and passionate uses you go to bed to Instagram on a daily basis as she percents initially went Instagram launched people are like, oh, yes. But it's a very it's a US US platform. So a lot of these big numbers and are US numbers, but actually presents the community lives outside of the US and four hundred million and four hundred million people are are go to Instagram stories every day. This has been the biggest shift in user behavior, we've seen since the shift to mobile and really big. And then within that travel is is among the most active unin gauged audience is on Instagram. They really really love to kind of spend time on Instagram. So just to talk about the middle. Bit more that's on average, seven eight seven eight seven days, basically a travel over is people who are traveling over on Instagram comeback to the. Perform seventy two seven days on average, the average instrument uses maybe six different cash agrees with six Edison. Put seven hundred seven is like, so they're very very active engaged users going the other way, and they also have watched three times. And so what is it that they've? It's three times more content than. Yes. Three times more than any other audience on Instagram on the seven hundred ten follow. Bronze again, got non-reciprocal that they're interested in a very curious mindset. They're interested in learning, but other businesses and influence to learn about the travel cash creek and their two times more likely to watch video content than any other cash agree than on the other audience. So really engaged curious audience is the travel insider, also here's another interesting one million and traffic overlay says hashtags are searched for every week on Instagram again looking for it. They they're really seeking kinda. New information by travel all the time. But interestingly there, the really seeking. I'd kinda hidden gems.

Orlands boys. It was a beautiful beautiful hotel. I'd heard a lot of ages in the past and went to visit for the first time. I put up a few photographs a few stories over the weekend. And I got tree friends quest enquiries from friends over just over the few days going Tommy is it worth it is it as good as they say it is. So that's a shows. You exactly like by me putting up my photograph. I've inspired than a few people to kind of think about their next their next trip that they are thinking of taking and that's the immediacy empower of our amazing platform. And the thing is why do people post on Facebook bright travel because people are very very passionate about travel. But there are also posh to kind of find like minded people by putting it out there to your friends and family, of course, they care by you and what you're doing. But actually by putting it either to like minded individuals who are equally interested in passionately by travel. You get a great reaction back. And it's it's unique discoveries that are not in the guidebooks and a unique perspective, and it really just suppose sets the bread crumbs for the next and the next travel journey and the happen for for someone else's next travel journey an interesting interestingly, basically, so. Instagram is about bringing people closer to two people at what people in the things that they love, but interestingly fifty percent of fifty percents people follow non reciprocal relationships in on Facebook or Instagram. So what does that mean, it means that people are interested in hearing from others are about to score remote? They actually want to be inspires, and and in that discovery mode from people who they are national enough friends, which are not related to. So just to talk the Instagram this two ways to discover on Instagram. So the speech, which we all know it's been around for a long time and more recently as Marcus said is stories, which is those Boba is on the top right on store, but they they open up into very mirth of video or image content that really kind of brings people in and there are a lot more casual in their approach. So it's a lot more media's they disappear after twenty four hours. So they're just more kind of storytelling in the moment. But the other thing that's having the fees stories of grace. But what what it does is. It opens up our appetite for adventure. And here's some images that have shown open feet or the last while I've literally put that in the wishlist, or, you know, put put US Bank for another day. But if the larger image there. A colleague from work who's his parents have in the west of Orlando posted this beautiful photograph gland, low abbey in Connemara. My sister lives in go away on straight away.
