Phil Napleton, Open Destinations’ SVP Products, will take to the ITB Asia Travel Technology Theatre stage for a keynote session on Friday October 18th (Day 3). The subject of Phil’s 30 minute presentation will be ‘How technological innovations are shaping the future for group travel’. 

Technological development has been mainly focused on FIT travel in recent times, with group travel widely neglected but today, the direction of travel is changing. As technological innovation shifts to include group travel, the present is bright and the future brighter. With speed, accuracy and operational flexibility as key areas in the groups market, how is the latest technology making the difference?

Open Destinations are amongst the leading suppliers of reservation and mobile technology for group travel. Destination Management Companies and Tour Operators in over 30 countries worldwide manage and grow their group travel product using Open Destinations products – Travel Studio, Travel Builder and Tineri App. Open Destinations are using the upcoming ITB Asia and WTM London trade shows to launch our latest development – a new Itinerary Builder specifically designed for group travel reservations.

If you sell and work with group travel of any variety and you’ll be attending ITB Asia this October, you won’t want to miss this session. We look forward to seeing some of you in the audience come October 18th.
