Technology and Innovation in Airline Distribution
11th - 12th May 2016 // Royal Plaza Hotel, Hong Kong


Technology and Innovation in Airline Distribution took place on 11th - 12th May in Hong Kong. With over 130 industry professionals in attendance, the two day event was a great gathering of distribution experts. 

The main themes to takeaway from the conference were: 

  • Airlines want to control their own destiny, distribution and data

  • The lines are being blurred between channels, direct/indirect and metsearch/OTA

  • People are really interested in NDC, specifically in reducing costs, enhancing revenue and achieveing control

Disappointed you missed out? There is still time to secure your place at the New Generation of Airline Passenger Systems conference taking place in September, also co-hosted by Flightglobal and T2RL. 

Thank you to all of our sponsors and attendees. We hope to see you in 2017 and remember to regitser your interest in order to receive updates.

Attending Airlines Included:
Sponsorship & Exhibition

Every aspect of our conference marketing strategy is targeted toward airlines who are on the lookout for new strategic partnerships – whether it be for a transformational PSS project, merchandising concept or NDC integration

We start our year-long event marketing campaigns by interviewing individual airlines to determine their partnership needs and construct a comprehensive plan to ensure our conference delivers every aspect of this – this is why over 100 unique airlines attend our conferences every year and why our exhibition and meeting spaces regularly sell out months before the conference

Over 100 airlines attended one of our London events in 2015 offering an opportunity to build a connection with the IT or commercial lead at airlines looking to invest in new software, technology and partnerships – no other event actively targets those in a buying cycle and offers such unprecedented access to senior airline executives actively looking for the right partners
