The resulting ‘long-tail’ of holiday offerings implies dramatic shifts in the sector’s concentration levels and its competitive dynamics. In order to examine the applicability and validity of this scenario, a number of key holiday niches are examined in terms of their: demand development, supplier landscapes, operational challenges and future potential.
