Testimonials from Previous Summits:

Very practical information and ideas that can be applied at your business straight after the event... 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.

Angelina Koftoun, Digital Marketing Manager, Amathus Hotels

Amathus Hotels

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

Fergal Byrne, Head of Online, The Doyle Collection

The Doyle Collection

Every year I attend the massive fairs, like WTM and ITB, where networking is only possible if you make an appointment... TDS is much smaller but very specific, perfect for networking with the right people (more decision makers, not so many sales persons.

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!

Linda Steingrimsdottir, Online Distribution Manager, Icelandair
