Future Travel Experience Ancillary 2018


The world’s definitive digital airline retailing show

Inspired by the latest digital developments, airlines are now thinking way beyond just selling flights and they are exploring a variety of inventive ways in which they can become fully-fledged retailers. New partnerships between carriers, airports, technology companies, service providers, brands and destination agents provide fresh opportunities to add value to the passenger experience while creating new revenue streams. The 2nd FTE Ancillary show will bring together all of the stakeholders that are active in this space to define the future means by which greater revenues can be created for all.

Read what some of the 2017 attendees thought of the event:

“My main goal here at FTE is to hear the latest ideas and trends in the industry, as our airline is a relatively new player in terms of ancillaries. The exhibition has been very interesting, and I have been impressed by the number of start-ups present. The networking has been good, and the event overall has been very well organised.”

Georgy Vakhrushev, Senior Pricing Manager, S7 Airlines

“It has been very interesting to hear the contrasting ideas in the conference sessions. There has been a real opening up, good dialogue, and interesting conversations. From a networking perspective, the event is very good. The exhibition has also been interesting, with a good range of companies. Dublin is an excellent choice of location, and the venue is very nice.”
