Welcome to the Travolution Summit 2017
30 Euston Square, Kings Cross, London | Thursday 28 September 2017
This year we will focus on the impact emerging technologies like A.I. and machine learning are having on the travel sector. Under our strapline ‘Smarter, Digital, Travel’, we set out to bring delegates the latest in bleeding edge thinking about what this actually means for their companies today. In travel, providing the best frictionless customer experience is seen as the new loyalty, so it's the practical application of emerging technology that we want to showcase.
Last year’s Summit was one of our most successful yet with delegates saying they valued the mix of speakers including some from outside of the travel sector like The Future Laboratory’s Tracey Follows and the BMJ’s Sharon Cooper. This year, as well as some of the biggest names in travel appearing in mainstage sessions, we’ll also be looking to highlight best practice from outside of travel.
Our new headline sponsor business systems provider Equiniti is one of four Workshop providers also including consumer review specialist Reevoo, customer service platform Zendesk and Amadeus, which will focus on best practice in programmatic marketing. The day-long Summit will kick off with the launch of a new European travel market report from Travolution parent Travel Weekly in association with Travelport and Mastercard.
We will then look at new EU data laws due to come in next year with our sponsor CloudIQ, with expert analysis on what this means for efforts to exploit client data to improve the customer experience.
The afternoon will once again feature our popular start-up pitch session, with three young companies coming under the watchful gaze of our panel of industry ‘dragons’.
Before this Nena Chaletzos, who pitched her start-up luxury travel agent LuxTripper in 2013, will explain how she has become a B2B provider artificial intelligence technology that promises to supercharge travel firms’ online conversion rates. Her new business Travel Genetics won a place in the prestigious Silicon Valley start-up incubator Plug and Play.
