The World Travel Market (WTM) London 2018, scheduled to take place from November 5-7, will host easyJet CEO Johan Lundgren in an exclusive interview designed to offer inspiration to delegates and help the flow of ideas creation around the travel industry.
Lundgren will share his plans for the airline’s future in a one-to-one session with leading airline consultant John Strickland. His appearance on November 5 at 4pm in the Europe Inspiration Zone (EU80), underlines WTM London’s commitment to bring the best speakers to the show as highlighted by its new strapline: Ideas Arrive Here.
“Ideas arrive at WTM London and with his vast experience at TUI and easyJet, Lundgren will give delegates a plethora of ideas on the future of the travel and tourism industry,” said WTM London, Senior Director Simon Press.
Lundgren joined the low-cost carrier in December 2017, at an uncertain and challenging time for the industry with Brexit looming on the horizon.
“He will also offer fascinating expert insight into key issues such as preparing for all eventualities as far as Brexit is concerned; identifying new markets; maintaining customer loyalty and keeping abreast of challenges such as security and industry regulation,” Press added.
The former TUI Group deputy CEO will also discuss easyJet’s continued growth; renewed focus on business travelers; the introduction of a loyalty program, and plans to expand the airline’s package holiday offerings.
John Strickland’s one-to-one session with Johan Lundgren is part of the WTM Meet The Travel Leaders series of interviews which are designed to give delegates a unique insight into challenges and opportunities within the industry.
Other sessions in the Meet The Travel Leaders series will include David Burling, CEO Markets and Airlines at TUI Group, and Gabriel Escarrer Jaume, CEO at Melia Hotels International.
