The Tourism and Hospitality Tech Summit and Expo 2018 is set to take place on November 23 and 24 at the SMX Convention Center in SM Aura, Taguig City.
Organized by Enderun Colleges, the expo looks to discuss the recent development in technology that is shaping the future of the tourism industry.
Enderun Colleges Director of Digital Transformation Colin Christie reiterated three major technological trends during the event’s press launch. The first, according to him, is that the smart things, like our smartphones, smart TVs, and smartwatches, only continue to be smarter.
He also pointed out how consumers expect to get something of value from the personal information they share online, like better service. This brought up the issue of data privacy and security, which will be part of the discussion in the expo.
Christie touched on the changing demographics of the consumers for the last trend. He said that the digital generation wants services that are more personal and more convenient to them.
These three major trends, according to Christie, is what he would like delegates to keep in mind during the summit.
