I am writing to you all this month from the comfort of my own Motorhome whilst travelling around France and sunny Spain. The temperature is a very pleasant 24 degrees and there is not a cloud in the sky ...
However, what is rather interesting about this situation is not the fact that I am fortunate enough to be able to do this but rather that I am noticing as I travel around that more and more people are engaging in this form of travel to escape the colder weather back home at this time of year and the fact that many of the people I am meeting are still business men and women (as opposed to retirees) who are now able to do this given the ease of access to the mobile internet. With wireless connectivity improving on campsites throughout Europe, there is no doubt in my mind that it is now getting easier and easier to stay in touch whilst on the move and not just from a leisure travel perspective!
Anyhow, in terms of closer to home and TTI's most recent activities and upcoming events ... Back in February of this year, both I and several members of the TTI Project Management team exhibited at the Travel Technology Europe show at Olympia in London. I thought that the show was much larger than in previous years and I was personally invited to both moderate and speak on a number of sessions in my capacity as TTI Chairman. I am also delighted to report that there was a lot of interest in TTI by those who came by our stand and consequently we have now signed up a number of new members to whom I would like to extend a very warm welcome.
On Tuesday 15th March 2016 we held our one day spring conference at the Strand Palace hotel in London entitled 'UX - The User Experience Revolution'. The event, as usual, was very well attended and we had a top line of speakers who each gave superb presentations on what is happening with regard to this fascinating topic. My thanks must go to all of the speakers who, once again, contributed to such a great event. Presentations from the day are now available via the website.
Looking ahead to TTI's programme of events for this coming year ...
On Thursday 19th May we will be holding a very special one day meeting at the Strand Palace hotel on the subject of 'Locale Codes'. This is following a call by a number of TTI members who would like to see the formation of a standard around resort locationsa and ancilliary add-on's. The day will be structured with 'locations, locations, locations' in the morning and the afternoon dealing with location based apps and standards. The day starts with registration and coffee at 10 a.m. and will end at 4 p.m. If any of you are interested in attending this free Project Working Group event, then please contact Liz accordingly.
Following on from that, TTI's summer forum (half day event - morning only) will be held on Tuesday 7th June, again at the Strand Palace hotel, on the subject of 'Yield & Revenue Management'. Details of this event are now on the website.
Finally, our autumn conference and winter forum are planned for Tuesday 20th September and Monday 7th November at this years' World Travel Market.
In the meantime, I trust that you are all looking forward to the summer with friends and family and that business is looking good and prosperous. I very much look forward to catching up with you at one of the events as detailed above later this year.
Happy holidays to one and all!
