São Paulo, July 21th 2021 – One of the highlights of this year’s WTM Latin America Virtual, which will be held on August 10th, 11th, and 12th, and which gathers people from several countries, will be the set of discussions on the different technologies that countries are taking on to move forward and ensure ongoing resilience for travel destinations and providers.
The 9th edition, which takes place 100% online, will feature three 20-minute sessions with experts such as Dan Richards, CEO of Global Rescue, Carlos Cendra, CMO of Mabrian Technologies, and Stephanie Boyle, Global Head of Communications at Skyscanner.
To Thaís Del Ben, marketing manager at WTM Latin America, this panel focused on technology can help professionals in the field to boost their businesses. “We have been through hard times and we are in the process of retaking. In the meantime, technology has become something even more necessary and will continue to be essential in the contact with customers and partners. Anyone who knows how to use this tool can reap good fruit now and in the future”, says she.
