Day two at #ATMDubai kicked off with an in-depth look at cruise tourism.
With Dubai alone targeting one million cruise tourists by 2020, our cruise experts were on hand to give invaluable insight into the growth potential and the steps the region must take to attract more cruise lines.
We caught-up with speaker Bo Larsen following the session, here is what he had to say.
The transformation of hotel distribution, how trip planning is being revolutionised and how data is being used to personalise customer interactions were all on the agenda in today’s digital transformation session, where a packed audience got the opportunity to ask the experts the questions concerned them the most.
Following the session, we spoke to Toni Portman who provided us with a summary of the key points.
The future of luxury travel…
What will the future luxury travel landscape look like? That was the question being answer earlier today on the ATM Global Stage. The top trends in terms of guest experience, service, destinations and hotel design were all debated in this popular session.
We chatted to speaker Linda Celestino of Etihad Airways straight from the stage.
Blurring lines in online and offline travel…
With more and more of today‘s connected travelers not limiting themselves to either online or offline, but rather seeking out benefits from both worlds, this session took an in depth look at the opportunity for forward-thinking travel businesses to offer and capitalise on a wide range of touch points.
Sabre’s Antonella Vecchio told us more following the session.
