How technology is changing travel management

How technology is changing travel management | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Within the next three to five years, the Global Business Travel Association expects emerging technology to "transform" how travel managers do their job. According to a new study by the GBTA Foundation, travel managers see their positions shifting to a more strategic role, partly attributed to streamlining and automating processes. Today Travel Managers' responsibilities are dominated by tactical tasks, with a large focus on managing vendor relationships. The study, 'A Day in the Life: The Role of Travel Managers,' surveyed over 700 North American and European travel managers and looked at the role of the travel manager, the value these managers bring to their organisations and a potential evolution in their role in the near future. Click here to find out how these changes may impact upon your business.

Museums and galleries should be using new technologies and media to teach, engage and immerse visitors in the art they are viewing, says Local Projects founder Jake Barton.

Speaking at Wired 2012 about the future of cities, Barton explained how he was given the opportunity to help the Cleveland Museum of Art achieve this using touchscreens, live cameras and video, turning visitors into the curators of their own experience in the process.

Emerging markets continue to turn to technology to book travel

Emerging markets continue to turn to technology to book travel | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

The Emerging Consumer Survey 2015 by Credit Suisse tracks nine key emerging countries: Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and South Africa. Within the past five years, there has been a nearly 20% growth in propensity to holiday within emerging markets. This has partially been fuelled by the resurgence of the global economy. The aspirations of consumers in emerging markets continues to grow, with Brazil leading the pack by more than double. Consumers in Brazil are often geared to take shopping trips, particularly to close-in locations such as Miami, which drives a significant amount of travel spend into North America. China, India and Indonesia are quite mobile, with around 5% of consumers in those countries planning to holiday in the next 12 months. While it may seem that emerging markets are not as suited to technology-enabled travel, these regions are enjoying significant smartphone penetration.

Technology in tourism: help or hindrance

Technology in tourism: help or hindrance | Tourism Innovation | Scoop.it

Technology is a tool used to enhance the customer experience; however, it can also be seen as a distraction, according to industry experts.

During the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) Asia Summit 2013, leaders in travel technology gathered to discuss the future potential and current pitfalls that exist within the industry.

“Technology, well-being and design are the three mega-trends associated with the future traveller,” Hong Kong Polytechnic University Professor Kaye-Sung Chon said.

While technology is notably important for the next generation of tourists, its potential is still unclear.
