Jerusalem-based start-up Joyned, developer of Joyned Booking, a solution that makes online group booking a social experience, has today announced the appointment of Lutz Vorneweg, a senior executive at tourism giant Amadeus, as its travel industry expert. Vorneweg has over 30 years’ experience in senior management positions at Amadeus, most recently as SVP of Strategic Alliances and Portfolio Partnerships. Amadeus provides technology solutions for the entire tourism industry, including hotels, travel agencies, airports, and airlines. It employs 16,000 people in over 190 countries, and in 2021 its annual turnover reached more than $3 billion.
Amadeus and Microsoft have joined forces to co-author a new report exploring how new technologies will make the experience of travel better.
BCD Travel has expanded its agreement with Amadeus as the forward-looking travel management company refines its global technology approach to best capitalise on opportunities in the new era of business travel.
A global research study - Traveller Tribes 2033 - identifies four tribes that will develop in the next ten years. The work suggests many travellers will be open to new and emerging technologies and will want to travel in more sustainable ways.
Sustainability in travel was the focus of Amadeus’ worldwide hackathon, which saw more than 2,500 student participants. The hackathon offered students an opportunity to code on a cloud native platform and compete for prizes.
Accelerating the digital transformation of travel and expense will be vital to improving the employee experience and achieving corporate goals next year, according to a new study conducted by Amadeus Cytric Solutions.
TomTom has become the first organization in the Netherlands to offer its workforce access to Cytric Easy, the leading booking tool Cytric is now embedded into Microsoft 365.
