Europe’s largest forum for the travel, hospitality and passenger transport executive using digital & data 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 that give you customer insight:

  • Exploit new platforms:

    Conversational commerce backed by AI allows direct sales, better service and cuts costs. Whether via web, brand app or through messenger apps (900 million FB messenger users compares favourably with 100 million Uber users) the industry is uniting chat, service and commerce.

  • Drive data enabled personalization:

    Personalisation of product, message, payment and the very relationship you have with your customer is being revolutionised through analytics, data partnerships and machine learning. The result is higher conversion rates, customer loyalty and profitability
