Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Thursday, 7 February 2008

This coming March the Travel Distribution Summit Asia 2008 is returning to Singapore. A selection of highly qualified speakers from some of the most trusted worldwide travel brands, will meet to discuss the opportunities and challenges of this evolving market.

It is widely acknowledged that the Asian region is the world’s most dynamic travel market, with inbound traveler numbers growing by an impressive 8% in 2006 according to the World Tourism Organization. The freeing up of travel regulations which have previously hindered the region’s growth is moving the industry forward at an unprecedented rate.

Greater consumer buying power has given rise to a huge increase in the number of travel suppliers and choices offered. Major travel solution providers familiar with the enormous potential, are acting swiftly to ensure that they are first in to stake their claim on the market. This surge in competition has meant the importance of a well packaged, distributed and marketed product could not be more essential to remaining competitive.

Day one opens with a futuristic look at where the Asian travel industry is heading in the next five years and beyond. The possibilities of the industry are seemingly limitless, but which shape it will eventually take is debatable. Lending their wealth of knowledge to this vast topic are senior executives from four key stakeholder groups across the region AirAsia X, Carlson Wagonlit, Expedia and Abacus.

Moving into the afternoon and across the rest of the summit, the focus fixes on four main themes: Travel Distribution; Revenue Management and Pricing; Sales and Marketing; Distribution Technology. Each conference sees a dissection of the key regional issues that have been identified as the most opportunistic and problematic looking towards 2008.

Hear the latest cost cutting online distribution methods being employed by the largest Asian travel brands, and how they are maximizing their profits as a consequence. Discussions led by Cathay Pacific, IHG, Jetstar Asia, Starwood and Oasis Hong Kong Airlines.

Discover the latest techniques of revenue managers from across the region, and tackle the worsening issues of best rate guarantee and the growing dilemma of human capital. Discussions led by the Venetian Macau, Kingfisher Airlines, Shangri-La and Jet Airways.

Finally, learn what distribution tools are available to support current infrastructures and encourage use of online portals, in a region where the lack of trust still provides massive barriers to ecommerce. Discussion led by Raffles International, Zuji, Millennium & Copthorne, Stella Travel Group.

Organized by EyeforTravel, the Travel Distribution Summit Asia 2008 was held 18 - 19 March at Suntec Convention Centre in Singapore.
