Travel 2.0 And Other Updates

Hey 2.0'ers,

It's been a while! Lots of updates to share.

Recently I took a new full-time position with Phocuswright as Manager of Research and Innovation. If you're not familiar with Phocuswright, they're the travel industry research authority and they run some of the most influential conferences where industry leaders gather and startups compete for recognition.

So first things first, I want to share that Phocuswright is running a startup pitch competition at our Europe conference May 16-18 in Amsterdam and there are just a couple of spots left. We also have discounted conference tickets available for founders with a startup less than 4 years old who have never attended a Phocuswright event before. Pitching or just attending are both great opportunities to reach decision-makers in Europe. Email me for details if interested and check out the conference website here:

Back in NYC, I wanted to let everyone know that is coming up on April 20-23, with a tech/startup focus on Saturday April 22 at Bohemian National Hall (UES Manhattan). For the last 3 years I have run full-day Travel 2.0 content tracks at NYTF, but this year I can't make it so Bill Beckler, co-founder of, and Dmitry Koltunov and Alex Shashou, co-founders of, will be stepping in to host an informative talk and a panel discussion all about travel startups. You may remember their entertaining and enlightening sessions at NYTF last April and The CTO Show meetup in August. There will be other tech and startup-focused content that day too, check out the full schedule here:

Also in NYC, VoyagerHQ has a couple of events coming up that look great:

And out in San Francisco, will be held May 22-24. They're having a pitch competition where I'll be a judge, and lots of in-depth content sessions. (full schedule here)

I hope to be running more 2.0's soon, but it's tougher for me these days since I moved further south from Manhattan. Would anyone here like to help plan and run events for the group?
