Phocuswright India 2018 to deliberate on the potential of digital

The APAC travel industry will once again gather in the third travel technology innovation summit – Phocuswright India 2018. The event will be organised by research agency – Phocuswright and will be held from April 19-20, 2018 at the Leela Ambience Gurugram Hotel and Residences. The first round of speakers and program topics were recently announced.

In its third year, Phocuswright India promises to assemble a program and speaker roster that’s bigger and better than previous events. Attendees will see panellists deliberating on the potential of ‘Digital Travel Rush’. Consumers are fervently researching and booking on digital mediums, especially mobile and investors are placing massive bets on startups during the ongoing digital transformation. The dynamics of the ‘APAC Travel Market’ will also be
highlighted where nobody is safe, competition is intensifying, startups are attracting capital while the established order is actively consolidating and cornering the markets. ‘One Size Doesn’t Fits All’ session will elaborate on how each market needs its own strategy and communication and how winners emerge after a long gestation period.

The list of speakers finalised so far includes Urrshila Kerkar, Executive Director, Cox & Kings; Aloke Bajpai, CEO, ixigo.com; Deep Kalra, Founder and Group CEO, MakeMyTrip; Neeraj Govil, Area Vice President-South Asia, Marriott International, Dhruv Shringi, Co-Founder and CEO, Yatra Online, etc.

The upcoming edition promises a combination of unprecedented networking opportunities, the Phocuswright Innovation Platform, candid conversations on stage and insightful workshops.
