World Travel Market London (WTM) 2017 logoThe event will include two sessions and will be moderated by Genesys founder and senior partner Paul Richer: A debate on day one, Monday November 6, and the Genesys Summit on day two of WTM London.

First off, Richer will lead a thought-provoking debate entitled the “Future of Technology in Travel and Hospitality”. Organized in association with Travel Technology Initiative, speakers include Jose Murta, global head of hospitality at Trivago, who will give his take on how the industry is set to develop in years to come.

“This session will look at how, as technology continues to evolve, new opportunities present themselves to operate our businesses in an increasingly sophisticated manner,” Richer said in an announcement.

“These opportunities also provide an entrance into our industry for new technology-led companies that are challenging the accepted orthodoxy – and revolutionising the way travellers connect with independent hotels, hotel chains and OTAs,” he added.

The session will take place on Monday, November 6, on the WTM Global Stage: AS1050, from 16.00-17.30. As the first day of WTM is invite only, delegates must ensure they are registered for all three days to attend this session.

On day two, some of the world’s most digital-savvy executives will take part in this year’s Genesys Summit. The 2017 summit is entitled, “Future Digital Thinking” and looks at how organizations are – or should be – addressing the growing consumer market of digital natives.

According to Richter, “the summit provides the perfect opportunity for people to hear from those in the know what the future has to hold. It’s also an opportunity to address key questions such as whether companies are positioning their business for the future and where they should be focusing their resources”.

Joining Richer in the discussion are Daniel Wishnia, digital marketing consultant at GCH Hotel Group GmbH; Paul Mulcahy, senior vice president commercial at Movenpick Hotels and Resorts, as well as Max Sinclair, founder of Eco Companion, the booking engine for sustainable wildlife and nature travel experiences.
