Sasha Nau, Amadeus

The development of technology is dramatically changing the way we live, work, and do business. We are now seeing a significant digital transformation in the travel industry.

Alexey Matushkin,

Today, digital customer journey is non-linear. Customers go through significantly more touch points than a few years ago, and their expectations are much higher. Personalization is the only way to respond to this request.

Haixia Wang, Skift

Digitalization is not a hype, and it is here for a long time. For travel industry marketers, this means switching to digital promotion channels if you haven't already done so.

Felix Spielman,

We believe in B2B and believe that this segment will evolve and become more technological. In no case are we talking that B2C swallows B2B.

Vladimir Novoselov, Mail.Ru Group

Create a portrait of the client, predict the tourist flow and personalize user experience. All these tasks can be solved with support of predictive analytics.

Lina Shurkevich, Action Global Communications

To attract tourists to Dubai, we used influencer marketing and run a teaser campaign in celebrity social media accounts.

Maria Verbova, Atout France

We generate engaging content - we talk about the benefits of the destination through topics that are clear to the audience.

Irina Ryumina, Vkontakte

The point of brand presence on Vkontakte is communities. The social network becomes a full-fledged ecosystem, where a user can not go out at all and get all the necessary information there.

Taras Demura, TUI

There is no online or offline. And in the future, the difference between them will blur even more. In general we are talking about omnichannel and the fact that at different stages of the journey, a client interacts with call center, office, or website.
