This is the discussion page for the 10th of 12 core family travel topics being presented in collaboration with the Family Travel Association (FTA).

Our topic is The Impact of the Sharing Economy on Family Travel  (read the short essay in this link first or review the summary below).

Summary: "Sharing" has increased opportunities to travel but also the demand for travel itself, especially among families. After all, the Sharing Economy has allowed families to travel more efficiently, comfortably, cost-effectively and socially. Whether you buy into the merits of the Sharing Economy or view it as hype, the new choices it's creating are being embraced by consumers and will continue to push family travel forward.

We are very keen to learn what you think the sharing economy and how it has impacted you.

About the Family Travel Association and Re/Define Family Travel Campaign

The Family Travel Association is an organization that aims to inspire families to travel together by bringing together the world’s leading suppliers, resources and experts on traveling with kids.

At the end of September this year, the FTA is hosting its first annual Summit. Over the course of two full days, an assembly of industry executives and family travel experts will expand upon topics essential to a rounded understanding of the challenges of family travel.

In anticipation of that, Outbounding is collaborating with the FTA to count down the 12 weeks leading up to the Summit by spotlighting the 12 core family travel topics to the public. Each week, as part of its FTA Spotlight: Re/Define Family Travel campaign, we will open a discussion board in where you can feedback in reaction to an introductory essay written about the topic.

Following the Summit, Outbounding will again join forces with the FTA as it initiates a 12-month process of digging much deeper into each of these topics, one per month. By the time the FTA gathers for its next Summit in September 2016, it expects to have a much more powerful grasp of what's at play in family travel, fueled in part by your input here.
