[HD video below] Exclusive HD video interview with Roshan Mendis, Senior Vice President - Sabre Asia Pacific.
In this interview, filmed at the Travel Technology Exchange (TTX) in Beijing on 22 September 2016, Roshan tells us more about the event and whether it will become annual, or whether TTX will be bi-annual but with an online TTX in the odd years.
We discuss whether the event will rotate in future and if so whether it will remain in primary destinations such as Beijing, or take place in secondary or even tertiary destinations.
We talk about Sabre's acquisition of Abacus and what that has meant to the company in the 15 months since it took place.
We also ask whether Sabre's investment into the Sabre Labs and Studios is increasing and by how much.
We talk about Asia Pacific and which countries within Asia Pacific are growing the fastest, what challenges Sabre faces in new and upcoming destinations such as Myanmar and Cambodia and how much of Sabre's overall business Asia Pacific actually represents and how he sees that growing in the future.
Roshan also tells us whether Sabre has any plans to open a regional HQ in the Middle East, perhaps Doha, Dubai or Abu Dhabi for example, and if so when.
We also ask whether acquisitions are preferable to trying to create your own products and which areas in particular Sabre is looking at. All that and much, much more in the video interview below.
