Date: 18 March 2014
Location: Strand Palace Hotel, London
Presentation : Caroline Bremner, Head of Travel and Tourism at Euromonitor International, will offer a presentation on trends shaping online travel.
The US$600 billion global online travel market is expected to continue its steady ascent, boosted by growing internet usage and financial card penetration. Asia Pacific is a growth hot spot, with online travel sales set to double by 2017. The mobile and social boom is irrevocably changing travel habits, as consumers demand real-time services and ever-greater personalisation. Technology players and meta-search engines are taking on an increasingly important role, while new business models like peer-to-peer are going mainstream. Competition between direct suppliers and intermediaries is intensifying as brands battle it out for control of the booking funnel and ultimately the customer relationship.
Conference: The Travel Technology Initiative (TTI) was founded in 1989 to establish technology standards within the travel industry. Since then, TTI membership has grown to over 80 members covering countries across Europe and the USA. During TTI spring conference, high calibre speakers will discuss the digilution of travel. The travel and tourism industry has been undergoing nothing less than a digital revolution. Innovations and developments in the digital world have continued to arrive thick and fast with many innovations being beyond anyone's predictions. The world of digital travel is ever-evolving and almost beyond prediction. However, TTI has assembled a team of expert speakers who understand, more than most, how to capitalise on the digital travel revolution, now and into the future.
