Global Travel Marketing Forum

Now in its second year, The Global Travel Marketing Forum will draw on the experience of a diverse range of speakers to debate the latest trends and issues.  A compelling line-up of speakers include Martin Craigs, CEO, Pacific Asia Travel Association; Dan Cross, Middle East Head, TripAdvisor; and Walid Driss, Middle East & North Africa, Facebook.

Entrant online travel sites Wego and Cleartrip will reveal their latest developments and are creating a new market for themselves in The Middle East.
Seecrypt, a main sponsor, will discuss the need for privacy for corporate and high profile travellers and how their new applications can achieve this.
YouGov and technology companies SkyTech and Amadeus will reveal their views on the latest IT wave influencing the travel sector.
Duncan Alexander, Director of The Travel Marketing Store, stated: "We are delighted by the diversity of the speakers at this year's event.  Creating and sustaining a visitor economy is now viewed by many governments as a central policy for economic development and Dubai and the UAE are excellent examples of how this approach can work.  It can only be achieved by a committed and integrated government and private sector approach to develop travel and tourism".

The event takes place at the Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai, 25 September 2013. www.thetravelmarketingstore.com
