Until there is a vaccine (or significant herd immunity) I don't think travel will return to anywhere near normal. Ditto for trade shows/conferences etc. And it would surprise me to see business...

I had one the old Voyagers (I bought it in 2007) and liked it but the lack of organization was a drawback for me. When you have to pull something out in mid trip it helps to have a place for things....
