Welcome to TTI - and a brand new logo and identity for the organisation!
After 24 years, we finally decided that it was time to give TTI a more contemporary and leading brand identity ... and so we are delighted to introduce you to the brand new TTI logo. Over the next few weeks and months you will start to see this new logo and our new look and feel filter its way through all of our collateral including our conference folders & leaflets, PowerPoint templates and, of course, our new membership information packs. I would personally like to thank all of those involved in this design process and particularly Kurt and his team at Fresh01 who have worked so hard to give us this exciting new look ... many, many thanks to you all.
In addition to this design work, TTI's Project Management Working Group have also been busy over these past couple of months planning for our upcoming conferences and events later this year and have also been looking at a number of new technical standards that are emerging within the tour and ferry operators space. I am also delighted to report that we are continuing to do well with the TTIcodes project which is now gaining real momentum and we intend to hold a more formal update session later this year on just how well we are doing ... details to follow in due course.
Our Spring Conference, which took place on 12 March 2013 at the Strand Palace Hotel in London, entitled 'Let's Get Personal', was a great success and one of the most enjoyable conferences that I have attended in a long while. We learnt that travellers and holiday makers are now expecting more and more from their online travel experiences. They are seeking a deeper, more personal interaaction and are using social media and mobile devices like never before. In many ways they are no longer engaging in e-commerce, they are engaging in 'me-commerce'. I was interested to read in a recent online retail article that now, more than ever, being laser focused on your customers, adapting to customer feedback and creating a great shopping experience regardless of the channel is now crucial. If analytics tell us the 'what' behind e-commerce success, social media networks can now tell us the 'why'.
Moving on to our upcoming events and some dates for your diary. We have our Summer Forum on Tuesday 11 June 2013 which once again will be held at the Strand Palace Hotel in London and will focus on the very hot topic of 'Access to Flight Inventory'. As many of you may know, IATA are currently engaged in a new initiative called 'NDC' (New Distribution Capability) which is set to revolutionise how airlines distribute themselves in the future. This, I believe, is going to be one of the hottest subjects to hit the entire travel industry in the next couple of years and the line-up of speakers that we have is quite literally outstanding. I know I keep on saying it, but as before, this event is likely to be well over-subscribed so I urge you to book your place ASAP to avoid disappointment. We will also be holding our Autumn Conference on Tuesday 17 September, again at the Strand Palace Hotel and our Winter Forum in conjunction with World Travel Market on Monday 4 November, so please mark your calendars now. Details of all of these events will be published on our website as usual.
So, TTI as an organisation has changed, and, in my opinion for the better. We are constantly looking at new ways of providing value to TTI members and to creating new and exciting standards projects and event that will help us to continuously grow in the future.
I wish you all continued success with your businesses, a very pleasant summer and hope that you all have happy holidays with your friends and loved ones.
