Hilton, Marriott, Expedia, Facebook, Choice Hotels, Accor Hotels, Cathay Pacific, and more to share digital strategies at EyeforTravel Summit

Over 30% of the conference agenda will be industry case studies, at the upcoming EyeforTravel San Francisco 2018 Summit – the West Coast’s largest digital travel summit, where over 300+ senior travel executives will come together for two days, on April 9 & 10th. 
The overarching theme for 2018 sees a huge focus on emerging technologies in travel – with one of the key aims being to ascertain the practical tech strategy from the hype and to truly dissect the opportunities of these technologies for digital marketing campaigns.
This year sees the most number of case studies to be presented with brands such as Hilton, Marriott, Expedia, Facebook, Choice Hotels, Accor Hotels, Cathay Pacific, and more giving insights into their strategies and the secrets to getting relevant insights on customers to create successful engagement.
To shed light on how emerging technologies are shaping travel, Renu Kannu the North America Lead for EyeforTravel said “We really are at such an exciting point in travel – the industry has seen some huge shifts over the years, but the potential of travel technologies such as voice, AI, machine learning and blockchain is immense. This could be a game changer for travel brands in 2018 and beyond, and the time to act is now”.
