Leading travel technology provider Open Destinations has once again joined forces with Travolution to put travel technology on the agenda during London Technology Week. The session, entitled ‘East Meets West: Developing Travel Technology for Global Markets’, will bring together industry leaders and the start-up community to join in a panel discussion about the impact of Far Eastern markets and foreign investment on the UK technology sector.
‘We’ve seen tremendous growth for our business in the Asia market,’ says Open Destinations’ CEO, Kevin O’Sullivan. ‘We think that Tech Week provides a great forum for us to talk about the impact of these markets on our sector. Particularly in a post-Brexit world.’
The event will feature guest speakers who are paving the way in technology innovation in international markets. These include:
• Moshe Rafiah – Founder & CEO, Travelfusion – Travelfusion is the world’s leading travel content aggregator, providing a platform for travel transactions that connects travel suppliers with agents/search/users. Based in the UK, Travelfusion has developed into a 24/7 global operation which has gained momentum in Eastern markets, most notably through Ctrip investing a majority stake in the company.
• Kristy Hart – Co-founder, Hack Horizon – Kristy is an unconventional lawyer and entrepre-nerd who has consistently positioned herself at the intersection between the corporate and startup worlds. Her most recent initiative has been co-founding Hack Horizon, the world’s first in-flight TravelTech hackathon from Hong Kong to London.
