Q&A: TTE advisory board members share tips

How can delegates get the most out of the event?
Samantha Markham, digital marketing manager, Hong Kong Tourism Board:
Plan ahead – download the app, scan the floorplan, find the suppliers you want to learn more from and sift through the seminar programme to work out where you want to be and when. It’s a wasted day if you turn up to just meander around.

 

What areas of disruption lie ahead in travel?

Matthew Chapman, chief technology officer, Vibe:
There are many exciting areas in technology and someone clever always finds a way to apply them to travel. Electric driverless cars will mature in the coming years, reducing the need to own a vehicle and potentially throwing the transfer, car hire and airport parking markets into disarray.

 

What are the most exciting opportunities in travel technology right now?
Renee Tsielepi, consultant, Transcendence Ltd:
There are exciting opportunities in the augmented reality, internet of things and voice arenas. We already see BA’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner featuring the new head-up displays in the flight deck with primary information projected onto a transparent glass screen. Imagine getting information while travelling not just at your fingertips any longer, but on your eye view whenever you want it, and coupled with voice – how the world will change. Imagine having an “Alexa” with you showing you things, booking your restaurants, ordering your car and helping you wherever
you are.
