Creating any new business needs knowledge. Fundamentally to be successful you need to know what your customers want to buy.
Uniquely in our business many travel companies have to serve the traveller but get paid by the travel supplier.
This May 23-24 at the Travel Distribution Summit London we are going to try and use the combined brains of 300 online savvy travel suppliers to create a travel company that the customers will want and vitally the travel suppliers will be willing to pay for.
16 sponsored individuals will meet at the Travel Distribution Summit this May 23-24. Once put into 4 teams, briefed, by our innovation experts and they will use the unbeatable networking this event provides to create a business that the industry wants.
After 2 days of meetings, briefings and brainstorming, the teams will present their ideas to our audience (which always includes serial travel industry investors) and a winner will be announced.
Then it’s up to the team. At the event they have a unique opportunity to test the demand for their product and meet some very influential investors. Post event they can either take the idea and use it or just use the great experience and contacts they have created to do something new.
If you are interested in joining as new company Creator please fill in the form adjacent. (http://events.eyefortravel.com/travel-distribution-summit-europe/content2.php)
We are looking for 16 applicants and we want a wide range of skills, so experienced experts that have done this before and motivated graduate types so fill in the form. There is no cost involved but you will be expected to work on creating a new product rather than attending all the conference sessions. Networking will be key!
