ITB Asia is attracting key delegates

Web In Travel (WIT) has confirmed 75 speakers including travel industry CEOs, pioneers, investors and futurists.

An intense two-day WIT conference, October 19-20, at Suntec Singapore will be preceded by specialist WIT activities such as WITovation Entrepreneur Bootcamp (October 18) and followed by the WIT Ideas Lab and WIT Clinics on October 21-22, which ITB Asia attendees can join at no extra charge.

“There is huge practical synergy between Web In Travel and ITB Asia,” said Messe Berlin Vice President, Dr Martin Buck. “With one special price WIT ticket giving access to both events, the value proposition for travel industry professionals who need to understand the present and future of travel is immense. It’s the travel event of the year in Asia,” he said.

Web In Travel 2010 concentrates on ‘The C-Spot’. The event will put the customer at the centre of its conversations, from how the customer is changing with new technology, to understanding specific customer segments within China, Japan, Indonesia and the Philippines.

Organiser of Web In Travel, Yeoh Siew Hoon, said the interactive forum would help travel professionals understand the ongoing revolution in travel industry.

“Online and mobile is booming,” she said. “Asian travellers, along with travellers to Asia, are fuelling the growth of online travel sales at faster rates than any other populace.

“Asian economies are leading the economic revival worldwide. The Web in Travel programme this year is designed to bring about greater understanding of the needs and wants of the modern Asian traveler,” she said.
