TrustYou’s Inaugural Leadership Summit pits local brew with global brass

New York City, USA and Munich, Germany – September 4, 2014 – TrustYou will host its inaugural travel technology leadership summit on October 2, 2014 at its European Headquarters in Munich. While the beer must conform to the Reinheitsgebot and be brewed within city limits, industry heads from around the world will convene without constraint to debate the next wave of strategic imperatives.

 

Following provocative roundtable discussions, participants will switch gears from soaking in their peers’ wisdom to soaking in local suds. The venue will also change to the famous Bavarian Oktoberfest festival or Wiesn, after the colloquial name of the fairgrounds (Theresienwiese) themselves.

 

Forty-plus industry leaders will exploit this unique environment to challenge one another.  Their common quest: articulate meaningful priorities beyond the cliché’s over played at conferences.

 

PhoCusWright founder, TrustYou board member and industry pundit, Philip Wolf, will moderate the crowd – to the extent possible – and strive for answers to “What is most important in running today’s international travel technology businesses?” Mr. Wolf is regarded as one of the travel industry’s leading experts on innovation, technology and trends.

 

Senior travel, tourism and hospitality executives currently on the invitee list include:

 

  • Kayak.com
  • Hotels.com
  • Google
  • Trivago
  • Amadeus
  • Thomas Cook
  • Wego

  • MakeMyTrip
