Travel Tech Theatre

The travel industry is evolving driven by high advanced technology infrastructure and high adoption of consumers technologies backed up with an increased appetite for travel. The landscape of the travel industry is transforming, thus the roles of the travel players are changing. Moreover, we see emerging technologies and trends are disrupting the travel industry. One of the most important developments has been the increasing focus on, and demand for, personalization and merchandising technology.

Industry stakeholders - providers, intermediaries and sellers – need to work together to complement each other’s’ roles. They need to recognize how data can be used intelligently to achieve personalization and how to recruit emerging technologies to improve the traveler experience. They need to work towards a less fragmented travel ecosystem. 

This panel addresses the latest industry trends, distribution evolution, digital transformation, retailing and merchandising and how to achieve personalization in order to seamless travel experience.
