Travel Technology Europe 2012

Those who believe in telekinetics, raise my hand.

This week saw Gordon, Nick, Mark W. and I head down to Earl’s Court in London to represent Web Applications at the Travel Technology Europe exhibition.

Travel Technology Europe is the only place to be for travel industry professionals to discover the latest technology trends and solutions. The leading annual event attracts over 80 exhibitors and we were one of them; talking to some of the 3,000 visitors about our Reservation Systems. Our stand was a hive of activity, with demonstrations of some of our products on screen and a few free giveaways for the lucky ones. We had mugs with chalk to write on – we were all a bit excited by these when they arrived at our office last week. They proved to be a huge hit at TTE too! This got lots of visitors to our stand and kept us busy telling people all about Web Apps.

There were also some interesting talks throughout the day that a couple of us got the chance to go to. Tnooz hosted somelively debates on the latest travel news and Digital Visitor told us how to maximise content with Social Media use.

The team worked really hard to make the two days a success and from the positive feedback, we’re certain it was! Thanks to everyone that helped out with the preparations for the show, it was much appreciated and definitely worth it.
