TTG Asia and Singapore tourism publish free report
Insights and data gathered during TravelRave 2015, a week-long travel trade showcase spearheaded by the Singapore Tourism Board and comprising events such as ITB Asia, the Asia Travel Leaders Summit and the Hotel Technology Conference, are now available as a 24-page downloadable report.
During the event’s sixth annual run, experts provided thought leadership on what is shaking up the travel industry and how all segments of tourism, whether business, leisure or MICE, are to fare in the future. Topics such as nurturing human capital and impact of the sharing economy are also discussed.
One of the report’s highlights is on online travel and technology, where the ever-evolving distribution business comes under close scrutiny. All technology trends point to the streamlining of the guest experience in an effort to drive customer loyalty in an incredibly crowded market.
But the issue gets convoluted in today’s world, where the biggest accommodation provider has no real estate and where the world’s largest taxi company owns no vehicles. If China’s 94% approval rating for using sharing economy services is any indication, the peer-to-peer market is here to stay.
Another spotlight falls on human capital, bringing to the forefront issues of gender parity, nurturing of future talent, and on leadership succession.
