The whole Phocuswright team does an amazing job. They bring together the thought leaders, the influencers, the decision makers; and it is an incredibly worthwhile place for people that care about what travel technology is and where it is going. It always was that way but I would say that Phocuswright stayed on top of the curve bringing more engagement to the process. The Travel Innovation Summit was a great example of that. And I think that they are always trying to constantly improve themselves and in doing so making The Phocuswright Conference a can't miss event for the travel industry.
