We’re creating a more connected travel industry, underpinned by sustainability and long-term investor relations.
The travel industry held a rendezvous in Paris this week at the International French Travel Market ( IFTM Top Resa) trade show. Amadeus France and IFTM organised the star event within Top Resa – Le Lab des !Dées ( the Idea Lab) to monitor trends that will shape the future of travel in a sustainable, connected and personalised way.
We spoke to some of the participants about the role to be played by metasearch, the sharing economy, crowd sourced agencies, user generated content and user experience. Have a look at the video below to grab the top ideas behind this year's version of Le Lab des !Dées.
Top Resa was buzzing with visitors from the travel sector. Here we see the French State Secretary for Foreign Commerce and Tourism Development , Mr Matthias Fekl, trying a Google Glass application by Amadeus that offers flight search capability together with inspirational recommendations that can be shared in social media.
