A basic marketing principle to unlocking success is to understand who your customer is and what their behaviours are. In this session we unpick some of the biggest trends we’re finding across the sector and what’s the importance of these trends for business and opportunity. We’ll look at the methodology and technology needed to utilise this insight into actionable takeaways.
From contactless check-in to controlling your room via an app on your phone, this emerging technology has a plethora of benefits that improve a customer experience for friction-less service. In this case study, we hear how and why a global hotel brand has taken this next step with technology.
A lot of confusion remains about the pertinence of payments, the fundamental role it plays in user experience, customer loyalty, managing risk and consumer confidence.

As our industry becomes more digitised and our products and services become reliant on emerging technologies like AI, IoT and cloud, security risks increase.

An Accenture survey of more than 25,000 consumers across 22 countries, found that 59% of respondents said they would switch to a travel provider that promotes sustainability. While sustainability should play a role in every businesses’ strategic plan, to what extent should it? How can it ensure that we future-proof our business through sustainability-led initiatives for cost saving, brand reputation, and risk mitigation, and what innovation is taking place to address sustainability issues like green software practices.
The paradigm shift from traditional GDS model to modern retailing of air travel products is sizeable, with offer and order management. It plays into customer centricity with payment agility, merchandising and personalisation but can also offset distribution costs through to increased revenue.

What key actionable takeaways are there that are low lift to implement, avoid sticking points and might make a real difference in the interim? We will also delve into other tech solutions that are evolving the way airlines operate.
Customers are at the core of everything in our sector so therefore personalisation should be at the core of everything we do.
