The World Travel Market (WTM) report from 2009 has included predictions about the major trends in global tourism in 2010.

Major trends
The Obama Effect: according to experts, the election of Barak Obama as US president affected positively African tourism. The Obama Effect has led to a five percent increase in interest towards Africa's tourism opportunities.

The 2010 FIFA World Cup, which also took place in Africa, has helped for the continent's tourism development. Foreign tourist arrivals in South Africa increased about 25 percent to 1.02 million from June to July 2010 in comparison to figures for the same period of 2009.

The pop-up hotels were another major trend. The idea originates from London  and was first presented during Only in London event. The world' smallest pop-up hotels were set up near some of London's most popular tourism landmarks.

Female-only accommodation: London’s Dukes Hotel launched its Duchess Rooms targeting female business and leisure guests.

Latin America travel: economic growth allowed people from Latin America to travel in the region. In June 2010 Qatar Airways began daily flights to Brazil and Argentina.

Pet Travel: a report on trends in tourism in 2007 featured an increased need for  better pet travel conditions. Lufthansa opened a luxury salon for pets at Frankfurt airport. Walt Disney World in Florida offers a full-service pet accommodation.

World Travel Market report for 2010 will be published on November 8 when the WTM exhibition will start.
