Here are some of the testimonials from previous years:

I really enjoy attending Eyefortravel events, I find them educational, inspiring and very relevant to my industry. The insights provide very practical information and ideas that can be applied at your business straight after the event - which is great, you get to reap the fruit of the knowledge you get straight away. I highly recommend this event for anyone in the tourism & hotel industry as it's a great place to network but also get some solid information and forecast in trends.

The Travel Distribution Summit 2014 by Eye for Travel, was a valuable conference with some very interesting presentations and good networking opportunities. The conference was well organised and run and I would recommend it to anyone in the Travel Industry looking to learn more about what the future holds.

Fergal Byrne, Account Manager, Net Affinity

Net Affinity

Every year I attend the massive fairs, like WTM and ITB, where networking is only possible if you make an appointment with anticipation and where everyone wants to sell you something. The TDS is much smaller but very specific, perfect for networking with the right people (more decision makers, not so many sales persons) and a good place to get an update of what is going on in the travel industry.

Federico Giusiano, Content Solutions, ArrivalGuides

It was my first time to TDS and I have to say it really exceeded my expectations in terms of quality and variety of presentations, networking options... 2 days well spent!
