OpenTravel Alliance Announces New Sessions for 2010 Conference
The OpenTravel Alliance, the travel industry’s leading distribution specification/standards development organization, announces a nearly-final agenda for its 2010 Advisory Forum, including sessions on distribution in the long tail and customer-facing innovation in the travel industry.
Expert representatives from each of these segments will give their view and discuss their perspective of how these segments will evolve. Other panelists in this session include:
- Aaron Nissen, Director e-strategies, TravelAlberta
- Ted Miller, Chief Operating Officer, Instant Software
- Moderated by Dennis Schaal, North American Editor, Tnooz
Another new session added is titled Innovation in Consumer-Facing Travel Sites and Apps and is presented by Scott Gillespie, Author of Gillespie's Guide to Travel Procurement.
"Travel has had surprisingly little innovation in the last decade, especially for such a big and web-friendly industry,” said Mr. Gillespie. “Contrary to popular belief, the forces of mobile, social and search are not going to be the big drivers of travel innovation... at least not in the traditional sense."
This provocative session will cause attendees to question their answers and change the way the way they look at innovation.
