Utilizing AI trip planning and personalized, actionable content during this crisis
with Anoop Goyal
We continuously see destinations offering virtual tours and guides to interact with and inspire travelers stuck at home. At Inspirock we believe this is a good start but it represents the same blind spot marketers had pre-covid; people don't want canned experiences. They demand personalization and the ability to make content actionable.

Let's talk about that on May 12 with Anoop Goyal, Founder and CEO at Inspirock. Join us live!

Business Travel,
The Crisis and The Silverlining
with Claudia Unger
Founder @ Spell your Life Ltd.

Business travel is a particular tourism niche that is fairly complex because of the many different levels of clients (companies, travel managers, and travelers) and the distinct duty of care and security needs associated with corporations.

During this talk we'll take a look at what Business Travel is, how it fits in to the larger tourism picture, the effect of the Covid-19 crisis (furloughs and redundancies), how to ensure you're in the right job (or looking at the right jobs) and the outlook on recovery with a silver lining.

We are given once in a lifetime opportunity to pause, reflect, reset. The actions we take now, will shape our image and business results after the pandemic.

In times of financial crises, no one expects companies to take extraordinary measures to help their many stakeholders. However, the bold and creative steps your organisation takes today to deliver immediate assistance, will define your legacy tomorrow.
