Slide 2: “EyeforTravel delivered a proactive, forward-thinking and highly relevant agenda, with great speakers, excellent discussions and frank audience interaction. A great opportunity to network and participate in innovative discussion about the present – and the future – of America’s travel industry” Dena yahya, General Manager, Onetime.com, on last year’s Conference For over a decade, the Travel Distribution Summit North America has been renowned for bringing together thousands of marketing, technology and distribution executives. Quite simply, our shows go from strength to strength. We attract world class speakers. And we create an environment where business is not only talked about – but also gets done. Thanks to our unrivalled power to bring together high-powered people who recognize the vital importance of finding new inventory, new routes to market, and new business partners who can help turn strategy into lucrative reality, this event is a must-attend for so many. This year, two factors make your attendance more important than ever before. Firstly, because 2008 is turning out to be a year of great economic uncertainty. And secondly, because history shows us that rocky economic times also create a climate of opportunity. For those of us in travel, this opportunity may well have arrived in the shape of Web 2.0, along with the latest shifts in the travel distribution landscape. At the Conference, we’ll firmly address the overriding issue on travel professionals’ agenda right now: Weathering the storm and staying profitable. You’ll discover how to maximize the potential rewards of embracing Web 2.0 – and ensuring your business grows, whatever happens to the economy – by optimizing your website, targeting the right people, and reducing your current distribution costs. Take a look at the Conference Agenda and see how the emphasis is on taking business intelligence – plus lessons learned by the global leaders in travel distribution – and applying it to boost your own bottom line. The sessions on distribution, for example, will help you achieve maximum value, by enabling you to pinpoint exactly how you should adjust your current strategy to better exploit the evolving landscape, the latest moves by online intermediaries, and developments in the GDS space. As for the Web 2.0 opportunities, everyone’s talking about social networking, user-generated content, online communities, blogs, RSS, videos, podcast videos and podcasts. And travel customers are using these dynamic new online resources more and more frequently. Which features are most important? Which can remain lower priority? What are the implications for partnerships? And how do you actually monetize the ‘bells and whistles’ that every self-respecting website appears to need? As for widgets and mobiles… budget-eater or money-maker? We’ll give you the information you need to decide what will work best for your business – and what can be safely put on hold for now. With hundreds of the world’s most successful travel distribution experts in the same room as you, you are guaranteed to meet the people who can help take your business to the next level, no matter which way the economic wind blows. Reserve your place right away, before the ‘Sold Out’ sign appears again. Gain Unlimited Access to Three Co-Located Conferences with One Pass and Choose from Over Twenty In-depth Sessions! This year we have co-located three conferences under one roof to provide you with the opportunity to network with a greater variety and number of travel executives. And purchasing one conference pass gives you access to all three conferences, meaning that you can choose from over twenty in-depth sessions examining Technology, Ancillary Revenue, CRM, Revenue Management, Pricing, Distribution, eCommerce and Online Marketing. Tailor your two-day conference experience by selecting the sessions that suit your areas of expertise and come away with a wealth of information and a list of contacts that simply isn’t available anywhere else.
