Following the success of the November conference, this summit will focus on the future trends in travel and how the Internet challenges the travel and tourism industry. This time, though, several other interesting discussions will be held, including a “Travel Innovation Awards” contest and “The Future of Space Travel.”
“The Future of Space Travel” on March 17 will be promoted as a separate summit, as well as part of “Trends Innovation Travel Distribution & Investment Summit” and tickets can be purchased separately for the one-day event.
Overall, the conference will be highly interactive allowing participants to sense, for instance, the magnetic personality of Dr. Story Musgrave, who is the US astronaut with the most missions, the longest service, and the specialist who repaired and saved the Hubble Space Telescope. Story flew on all the US space shuttles, is a professional photographer with a collection of his work and photos from space, and he is now inspiring millions of people worldwide. Story will talk about his experience in space – he will show participants incredible photos of our “beautiful Earth,” which he took from space while on his missions, and share what the future space tourist will see and experience.
Story, along with other people who are launching space travel solutions or are involved in space tourism, will provide insight into the various space travel offerings coming out into the market in the near future and how one can purchase a trip to space. Story will also participate on an eco panel and discussion “saving our beautiful planet.”
Kathy Misunas, former CEO of Sabre Group, CEO of Reed Travel Group, and CIO of American Airlines, a 30-year travel and technology industry veteran, will be the keynote speakers and will participate on the “Travel Innovation Awards” contest jury.
Along with the “Travel Innovation Awards” contest, there will be an expo to meet experts from leading travel technology and solutions companies. Over the first two days, selected innovative travel companies will present their unique and potentially revolutionary solutions, with the 5 finalists selected and pitching to a jury of industry experts and investors on the final day in order to win the “Travel Innovation Award” competition. Could one of these companies be the next booking.com or TripAdvisor? Come and find out. In addition, investors and investment companies will be participating and will be available to meet and network with.
On day 2, there will be multiple workshop sessions that are designed and go into detail on subjects such as online marketing and online solutions and the essentials for companies to make an informative decision on how to change and grow in the online world.
