With Google making US$75 billion (in 2015) and travel suppliers reporting 34% commissions, is the era of cheap effective online communication and sales with the traveller dead? EyeforTravel research shows that these conditions have kick started a firestorm of disruption and innovation!

Digital and Data is driving our industry to:

  • Create new digital products:

    That allow travel Suppliers to create a digital experience so good that it doesn’t just sell direct, it drives lifelong loyalty

  • Negotiate partnerships in product, marketing and distribution to new, ground-breaking levels

    Fuelled by API technologies, data and insight is flowing between travel companies and crucially, profits are staying within the industry

  • New platforms:

    Conversational commerce backed by AI allows direct sales and service. With 900 million FB messenger downloads and 100 million Uber downloads, the industry is investing in uniting of messenger apps and commerce.

  • Data Driven Personalization:

    How does this impact AI, content and payments? The result is higher conversion rates that support traditional search-led engagement

This event will put the roadmap in your hands for where to invest in data and digital but it’s also about investing time and emotion in business relationships that sell your product, enhance your brand and keep your customer loyal.

EyeforTravel Europe has been doing this for 20 years - It’s the perfect platform where in a digital and data driven travel world - you gain first-rate insight and close business
