San Francisco, CA – Dozens of start-ups will be meeting in San Francisco, March 14th at EyeforTravel's Start-up Village, to get the advice, contacts and potentially securing the investment they need to succeed. The success of sites like Airbnb, Uber and HotelTonight is fueling a new wave of online travel start—ups set to take flight in 2016.

Mobile, data, technology and social media are just some of the factors transforming the way we purchase travel – providing an exciting opportunity for start-ups and solutions providers to get a foothold in this billion dollar industry.

One of the most difficult stages to go through as a start-up is looking to attract start-up capital. The open discussion format will allow entrepreneurs, experts and VCs to share the key to attracting investment, opening the doors for success.

Morning interactive sessions will be followed by EyeforTravel's Start-up Awards 2016 competition. Adhering to stringent judging criteria, a selection of start-ups will battle it out to win 'Best Travel Start-up 2016'. Packed with networking opportunities, the EyeforTravel Start-up Village is open to start-ups, investors, entrepreneurs, and all other interested parties to attend. You can purchase passes here:
