Are you equipped to tackle the online travel industry’s disruptive landscape?

The travel, hospitality and transport industries are in the midst of brutal digital disruption - in fact, we can say the industry is at a critical fork in the road. The battle to win the travel customer is now fought on the customer experience provided at every touchpoint. According to Google, “the travel planning journey is influenced by over 19 different touchpoints”. The appetite for innovation in the industry (particularly in machine learning and AI capabilities) has been fuelled by several factors:

  • The need to provide customers with increasingly personalised services
  • The need for user-centric and digital seamlessness of these services
  • The importance of building and sustaining meaningful dialogue throughout the customer journey to create and drive brand loyalty - with the ultimate goal of winning the booking

Be a part of the conversation at EyeforTravel North America 2017 - featuring 350+ senior travel executives, the event will provide an excellent platform to develop the strategy, partnerships and tools  you need to navigate the increasingly complex travel landscape.
