Presentation Summary: The global online travel market is far from mature in 2014, continuing its steady growth in all travel categories. However, online travel consumers are changing as they embrace new internet devices like smartphones and tablets, demand more personalised real-time services and enjoy sharing travel reviews and services with their peers. Approximately 87% of consumers around the world research and book their air, hotel, rental car and tours and activities on one or more of the thousands of online travel websites. With that, competition between intermediaries and direct suppliers is heating up, while a new generation of companies (Google, Facebook, etc) may become the future giants of the travel industry.
We will be talking about:
- The travel and tourism Landscape in Asia
- Go Go Gadgets
