Phocuswright has created its own network effect. Everyone is here. I get to be here for three days to meet - my day is booked - meeting, meeting, meeting - and then you get the opportunity to meet these smaller, innovative companies that you wouldn’t necessarily made the trip out for, but they are here, it’s convenient, very open and I think it’s kind of a self-feeding mechanism.

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.

This is one of the few shows I come to, because I get to not only meet my top clients - and usually the CEOs of my top clients - but also the CEOs or CMOs of my top partners, and I get to know the founders and drivers behind dozens of brand new businesses.
