Web in Travel 2010 – the conference element of ITB Asia – has confirmed 75 speakers including travel industry CEOs, pioneers, investors and futurists.

An intense two-day WIT conference, 19-20 October, at Suntec Singapore will be preceded by specialist WIT activities such as WITovation Entrepreneur Bootcamp (18 October) and followed by the WIT Ideas Lab and WIT Clinics 21-22 October, which ITB Asia attendees can join at no extra charge.

The first clinic on 21 October, is entitled, “How to Make Money from Your Website”. The second, on 22 October, is called, “Making Social Media Work For You”.

In the WIT Ideas Lab travel industry leaders will also give practical advice on subjects such as the mainland China market, luxury travel, the benefits of specialisation, and optimising social media and search.

ITB Asia runs simultaneously at Suntec, 20-22 October.

“There is huge practical synergy between Web In Travel and ITB Asia,” said Dr Martin Buck, Vice President, Messe Berlin. “With one special price WIT ticket giving access to both events, the value proposition for travel industry professionals who need to understand the present and future of travel is immense. It’s the travel event of the year in Asia.”

Organizer of Web In Travel, Yeoh Siew Hoon, said the interactive forum would help travel professionals understand the ongoing revolution in travel industry.

“Online and mobile is booming,” she said. “Asian travellers, along with travellers to Asia, are fuelling the growth of online travel sales at faster rates than any other populace. Asian economies are leading the economic revival worldwide. The Web in Travel programme this year is designed to bring about greater understanding of the needs and wants of the modern Asian traveller.”
