“Digital Transformation in Travel”: DataArt to Host Sixth Annual Travel Question Time Event – DataArt QT6
London –13 June 2017 – DataArt, the global technology consultancy that designs develops and supports unique software solutions, will host its sixth annual Question Time Event on 22 June in London, bringing together the leading figures from the travel trade and technology industry to discuss the future of travel.
DataArt QT6 will focus on the digital transformation in the travel industry. Moderated by Kevin May, Senior Editor and Co-founder, Tnooz, the event will follow the BBC Question Time format – with a panel taking questions from a floor of industry experts.
Travel brands have to accept that change is a constant, rather than a one-off, as they bid to ride the evolution of both the consumer behavior and technology. Whether combining these factors with merger and acquisition activity or simply trying to keep up with the competition, companies have digital transformation as a regular agenda item.
Guests will be able to ask the expert panel how their brands have tackled these challenges, and what this relentless drive to keep evolving means for the industry as a whole.
The panelists will include:
- Hilary Roberts,senior product manager for flights, skyscanner
- Adam Gill, IT director at Dnata Travel
- Joanna Dobson, senior director for UK & Ireland at Carlson Wagonlit Travel
- Paul Saggar, chief information officer at Capita Travel and Events
- Phil Scully,chief technology officer at Whitbread
- Alex Shchedrin, Vice President, Strategic Services, DataArt
- Kevin May, senior editor and co-founder at Tnooz
