How big data and AI help personalize the customer journey

Travelers of today expect the highest level of convenience when taking a trip. And the convenience is expected in the palm of their hand, at any moment, not only at the time of booking, but also for pre-travel formalities, in travel experiences and post travel services.

Travel brands today have to facilitate seamless transactions across devices and channels and promote meaningful personal engagement based on analytics.

Travelers design and customise their journey on the go. Connecting with travelers at every step of the journey is the only way to build the brand's loyalty. And the expectation is as high in times of difficulties when technology is backed up by human interactions to manage the disruption. The savy travelers oblige travel brands to experiment with many tech innovations to fullfill the travelers' expectations and deliver the ultimate holiday experience.

Amelie will share how AI, data science and big data helps to answer the traveler needs.
