Embracing the new entrants - Blockchain, Winding Tree, data miners and a host of apps

27 April, 2018

Literally tens of thousands of travel related apps are under development and fundamentally new forms of transacting business are emerging. Combining that with the growing effectiveness of artificial intelligence adds another dimension to the equation. Add to that the proliferation of large web based entities like Amazon, google, Facebook, Alibaba and others who have massive potential for data mining across the travel spectrum.

Coming to grips with the new potential and how all of these might fit together offers myriad opportunities. However, sorting out what is important and sustainable is key to making the right executive decisions.

This will be one of the topic areas discussed at the forthcoming CAPA- Centre for Aviation Airline Leader Summit - A CEO Gathering 2018 that takes place in Dublin, Republic of Ireland on 17-May-2018 and 18-May-2018.

Understanding aviation markets is CAPA’s great strength and passion and this year’s agenda includes a variety of topics sure to generate interest. The “new entrants”: Blockchain, Winding Tree, data miners and a host of apps will be a panel session on the morning of the Dublin forum on 18-May-2018 and will follow a keynote address on the subject from Mezi.com vice president - travel strategy & partnerships Johnny Thorsen.

It’s hardly a secret that the airline industry is facing myriad challenges, notably in the marketing and distribution areas, as companies with personalised data, and the analytics and artificial intelligence to go with it, become greater threats to the stability of the traditional airline model.

This high-level aviation event, hosted at Powerscourt Hotel Resort & Spa in County Wicklow, to the south of Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland, for a sixth time, is a forum for debate and discussion of strategic issues facing the aviation industry and it is attracting delegate interest from across the globe.

The main summit subject is "Airlines making money: a vision of the future”, with an underlying theme of disruption and change and it will bring together global leaders to discuss key strategic issues and challenges facing the industry as new technologies come online and tougher regulations create downward pressure on traditional revenue streams. The forum will also explore adapting business models, smart innovations and how the industry can embrace collaborative partnerships to adapt and flourish in the digital age.
