Panel: Future of the Travel Industry

It seems that the travel industry is always in a state of change and reinvention. This panel will take a look at some of the changes that we are seeing today and discuss how the future of the travel industry may evolve over the coming years. Among other subjects the panel will address distribution, pricing models and the impact that changes to these dynamics will affect the way in which many travel categories are sourced and procured in the future. The panel will consider the role of technology companies in shaping this landscape and how suppliers and intermediaries like TMCs and GDSs will need adapt to the challenges that the future presents. The panel will also provide insight on the specific impact to the Houston market place and the energy sector.
