9:40 AM PANEL (Tonight Show Style) Riding a New Wave in Cruises

As we researched our program agenda it became clear: the cruise companies are the cool kids, and you want to hear from them!  Let’s set sail and explore though this discussion with a hop off, hop on again when it comes to the stuff of seafaring dreams including:
 
·         Wearables at sea
·         Leveraging relationships with travel agents
·         Forging strong relationships with customers across audiences

DAY TWO: Booking & Experience, TUESDAY, APRIL 9, 2019

Tuesday, April 9th, 2019


3:45 PM PANEL (DEBATE TEAM STYLE) How to Pick the Right Service Provider When So Many Are Offering Similar Services

This session will attempt to present a non-biased approach to talking about what the service providers are offering and how to determine the best fit for your business.  Fine, let’s be honest.  Everyone is biased.  This debate will embrace that and showcase different perspectives on vendor selection. 

4:25 PM What’s Troubling and…. Trending? Guided Discussion Roundtables with Polling

Discussion Led by the Digital Travel Summit Advisory Board

A highlight of Digital Travel Summit, roundtable discussions are your best opportunity to deep-dive into the nitty gritty and idea-share with your peers. This year we are using this session to connect and discuss the biggest challenges you’ve have in the past 12 months but, with a twist – we’ll be taking suggestions on challenges during the break and kicking off the at-table discussion with live polling through our app to discern how many of you are impacted.  Discussion may include:
 
•             Things change every three months, what are recent developments of note and what can we expect next?
•             When GDP drops, travel drops, what companies are doing to combat uncertainty caused by trade problems
•             Any new or pending mergers and acquisitions and their impact
•             Pending disruption from players including Google and Amazon
 
At the 20 minute mark everyone will switch tables to gain exposure to different view points.  Get ready to move and learn!
