Thanks to the ease of travel, the world has never been smaller. But no matter where you go, there are risks. International SOS, a medical and travel security risk services company, has released its 11th annual Travel Risk Map, which predicts the most dangerous places to travel in 2020, as well as the biggest issues that travelers will face in the year ahead. This is accompanied by the Business Resilience Trend Watch, a survey of over 1,300 professionals across 214 countries who are responsible for business travel decisions. According to the survey, 47% of business travel planners anticipate that risks will rise in the coming year, due to an uptick in security threats, civil unrest, geopolitical unrest and natural disasters.
