The travel industry is in the midst of disruption with brash, well-funded new companies and business models upsetting the status quo.
Of course, change is never easy.
Taxi drivers have rioted in Paris over Uber (see above) while Airbnb has shaken up the accommodation industry with its peer-to-peer marketplace.
Traditional (=old) business models are being seriously challenged, forcing many to re-think their approach and adapt.
'Disruptive Influences' will be a major theme of this year's TRAVELtech Australia conference.
The program will explore the changes that are rocking the travel world with a focus on online travel, marketing, distribution and technology.
Innovation, as always, will come under the spotlight with a slew of fresh-thinking companies taking the stage.
TRAVELtech will run over a single day and feature 20+ speakers.
Sessions will be a mix of presentations, case studies, discussion and debate.
Program development is now under way and we're also looking for event partners.
