The challenge

Most travelers visit dozens of different websites and search for inspiration before booking a trip. Increasingly, those searches include video content, with YouTube reporting for instance 1 billion hours of video watched every day. What if travel players could turn these viewers into travel buyers on the spot?

This is the driving force behind Amadeus Video Solutions, the all-in-one marketing suite for the travel industry to turn viewers into buyers. Amadeus Video Solutions gives travel brands the ability to embed clickable calls to action and live booking details about attractions, hotels, restaurants and other destination highlights in videos.

Where do you come in?

We are looking for an external partner to help us aggregate and tag a wide range of relevant video content that can be used by travelers for inspiration and booking, all in one place. The ideal candidate company can gather and curate video content from sources like YouTube, Vimeo, etc. and automatically identify the places featured in those videos, to enable the display of relevant information and booking capabilities.

Why this matters?

Improving the customer journey and making life easier for travelers is a key area of focus for Amadeus. Until now, there were plenty of interactive video players, but none specifically created for hotels, restaurants and other travel players. Amadeus Video Solutions is a direct answer to this problem which works in the interests of both the traveler and the industry as a whole.
