Innovation & Disruption

Trends in Travel & Hospitality


Join Innovation Consultants, PH1 Media, for a research presentation and expert panel about innovative trends and technologies transforming the travel & hospitality industries, both locally and globally.

Hotels, restaurants, resorts, vacation rentals, tour companies are only but a few of the businesses that have transformed over the last decade due to the explosion in global tourism. While some cities in Europe are responding negatively to rapid change, others are welcoming tourism for an increase in employment and local GDP. And while many businesses in the space are quickly innovating thanks to new technologies, others are falling behind and at risk of disruption.

This presentation will highlight key innovation and disruption trends for the industry over the next ten years. You'll learn about innovative new technologies, new business models, and disruptions that the continued increase in tourism may cause. You'll also learn about potential new areas of investment that will open up in the industry.
