In this session...

How we get from here to there and what we do in between is shifting before our eyes. Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality are quickly transforming the way we discover, plan, and book travel experiences. A sneak peek at the airport of the future suggests that a great deal of today’s pain points will be eliminated through AI, facial recognition and multi-lingual robot assistants to provide an easier and efficient experience for national and international travelers.

Today, travelers are increasingly self-sufficient from airline purchases to hotel and car rentals. In this emerging phase, mobile is a key connector, giving travelers greater integration each step of the way from flight to hotel to experience. Guillaume Lelait, CEO of mobile agency Fetch will bring together industry leaders from AFAR magazine, Cathay Pacific airline, and Hopper to discuss this shift and more.
