ITB Asia 2019, a leading travel trade show, is set to deliver another year of thought-provoking and inspiring content to industry professionals as part of its conference program.
Themed “Bold Thoughts, Bold Moves”, the 2019 conference will bring together thought leaders from across the MICE, leisure, corporate, and travel tech sectors for high-level discussions on the trends that are driving change in the travel industry.
Across the three days of the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to experience over 100 sessions featuring insights from more than 260 speakers.
“This is the opportunity not just to identify the clearest opportunities, products, services and technologies, but to debate and collaborate on how to maximize their potential, for the benefit of providers and travelers alike,” said Katrina Leung, Managing Director of Messe Berlin (Singapore), the organizer of ITB Asia.
“Bold Thoughts, Bold Moves” will feature a wide range of themed sessions, including corporate travel, travel & tech, destination marketing and Muslim travel.
On day one, speakers from American Express Global Business Travel, CTrip, CWT, Sabre and Traveloka will assess the future of technology, sharing insights on innovations that will shape the travel ecosystem.
Day two will include a keynote session on the future of travel distribution. Speakers from Agoda, Hotelbeds, KAYAK and TripAdvisor will outline how they innovate to remain competitive in a fast-evolving industry.
Furthermore, the conference’s third day will feature representatives from leading travel companies such as Booking.com, OYO Hotels & Homes, and Thomas Cook China who will be uncovering the potential that Chinese travelers’ evolving preferences will offer to businesses, brands and retailers.
In response to its popularity last year, Knowledge Theatre will also see the return of the C-Suite talks. This will feature senior representatives from AKARYN Hotel Group, GCP Hospitality, Intrepid Group, Lonely Planet, THE RIDE and Travelzoo, who will share their perceptions on the vital issues facing the travel industry today.
