Awesome Trip - Interview with Mark Corbett, Chief Innovation Officer, at IATA AIRS 2019

Exclusive interview with Mark Corbett, Chief Innovation Officer, at Awesome Trip.

In this interview, filmed on 30 October 2019 at the IATA Airline Industry Retailing Symposium 2019 in Bangkok, Mark tells us why IATA invited Awesome Trip to the event, what he hoped to achieve from attending, what sort of networking opportunities were available, and what he thinks of it.

Marks explains what an IATA Hackathon is, how long they tend to last, why Awesome Trip was taking part, and what kind of solutions they worked on at the Hackathon.

As a major part of Awesome Trip's business is student travel, we also discuss the latest trends in the student travel market, what Awesome Trip's festival is all about, and what coach travel has got to do with it.

Mark shares his thoughts on what young travellers are looking for these days and how technology has helped them to explore cities in ways that may not have been possible, or advisable, in the past.

Awesome Trip has built a widget that helps with carbon offsetting. Mark tells us what carbon offsetting is, why it is important, how the three lines of code that they've written can be inserted into an airline's booking system, what it does and what options are available.

Steven asks whether more regulation is needed when it comes to carbon offsetting so that travellers can have greater confidence that the money they are putting towards it really is going to the initiatives outlined and not being used for other things.

 All that and much more in the FHD video and podcast below.
