TTI plans travel distribution conference

Travel Technology Initiative is to hold a conference on the future of travel distribution.

The conference will explore how travel distribution has changed in recent years since the advent of the Internet and what the future holds.  Speakers have been carefully selected to represent different sectors of the industry.  They include:

John Donnelly, ex MD, Harvey World Travel

Daniele Mancini, e-Business Director, Costa Cruises

Hugo Burge, Vice Chairman and President International, Cheapflights

Madeleine Wood, Head of Business Development, Spannerworks

John McQuillan, Chief Executive Officer, OpenJaw Technologies

Stephane Durand, Managing Director, Amadeus UK and Ireland

Murad Hajeebhoy, Vice President, Lodging and Destination Services, EMEA, Expedia

Mick Mott, General Manager of TTI, stated, “Distributing travel products has never been more complex that it is today and is set to get even more complicated.  We have left the world of the telephone and viewdata far behind.  It is really important that everyone within the industry understands how best to distribute their products.  TTI_s Autumn conference will provide a terrific insight into this subject.”

The conference is being held on Tuesday 25 September in London.  It is free to TTI members.  ABTA, AITO, ETOA and UKinbound members pay a special rate of just £125.
