Description


What will be on the impact of global markets on the travel technology sector?

Travolution has once again partnered with UK technology specialist Open Destinations to host an event during Tech Week in London. This event brings together travel industry leaders and the start-up community for an open discussion about the future of the travel technology sector.

This year, the discussion is about the impact of global markets on the UK travel technology sector. Many UK technology providers are expanding into Asia and are seeing a growth in foreign investment.

What is the potential impact of travel tech innovation coming from Eastern markets? How can UK businesses collaborate with these markets? How will affect the sector in a post-Brexit world? These are some of the questions we will be address with our guest speakers who are paving the way in the sector.

Event format:

1800 – 1830 Guest arrivals with drinks

1830 Welcome from event sponsors

1840 – 1940 Speaker sessions

1940 – 2000 Panel discussion

2000 – 2030 Informal drinks reception

2030 Carriages
