Voyager HQ, a first-of-its-kind startup club connecting founders with investors, mentors, and corporate partners in the travel, tourism, and hospitality industry, is hosting the inaugural Travel Disruption Summit in New York City on May 23, 2018.
The event is being hosted in collaboration with Fareportal, the travel technology company powering CheapOair.com and OneTravel.com, and Amadeus, a leading provider of advanced technology solutions for the global travel industry. Both companies are long-term strategic partners of Voyager HQ and proud supporters of the next generation of travel innovation.
This one-day symposium will convene the top 100 technology innovators in travel, tourism, and hospitality for focused discussions and actionable outcomes towards the advancement of the industry. The event will include keynotes from thought leaders in innovation on topics such as identifying the technology gaps in the travel industry, API accessibility and partnerships, and the future of travel distribution with blockchain and NDC.
Attendees will take part in focused roundtable sessions organized around each phase of the traveler’s experience: Discovery, Search and Aggregation, Inventory and Distribution, Purchasing, Transit, Travel, Corporate Travel, Hospitality Experience, and Destination/Tourism.
These intimate conversations will be moderated by startup founders from Voyager HQ’s membership who are developing solutions in each vertical. Industry leaders, venture capitalists, and media professionals will also contribute their inputs to the discussion.
The day’s program will culminate with a selection of early-stage, visionary startup founders pitching their innovations for the near future of travel, while all attendees cast a vote for the winner. All will be followed by a cocktail reception in New York City to continue the conversations and formalize the partnerships initiated during the Summit.
