FTE Global 2015 Conference programmes now LIVE
Las Vegas is the home of magic, and for Future Travel Experience Global 2015 we have lined up a trio of truly outstanding household name keynotes (the “FTE Global 2015 Keynote Hat-trick”), each of which is playing a crucial role in our changing world today, and will continue to drive positive change in the future, directly impacting the end-to-end travel experience.
We are excited to announce that the opening event keynote will be delivered by Google’s Megan Danielson, Head of Travel Industry, and Max Coppin, Partner Development Manager. In this fascinating joint keynote address, Megan and Max will open the audience’s eyes to the possibilities new technologies and a truly “customer focused” mentality could create in travel, and the likely repercussions of realising those possibilities both to passengers and industry stakeholders. After hearing this keynote, all of those present in Vegas will be able to better plan how to future proof their strategies, and improve their end-to-end passenger experiences.
Megan and Max join Virgin Galactic’s Jonathan Firth, Senior Vice President of Spaceport and Program Development, and Facebook’s Global Head of Travel, Education and Customer Services, Lee McCabe as confirmed keynote speakers at FTE Global 2015, which will take place in Las Vegas from 9th-11th September 2015.
The future of travel is no longer about just getting passengers from A to B; it’s also about providing a personalised and memorable experience along the way. This can only be achieved through new forms of collaboration between the traditional industry players and tech giants such as Google, who passengers engage with every day, whether they are travelling or not.
Megan has over 15 years of digital experience. In this role, she identifies and oversees innovative digital advertising and marketing solutions for the US travel industry. Her team serves some of the largest US airlines and hoteliers. With over a decade of experience in the industry, Max coordinates Google’s engagement with a range of Android Partners. He joined Google in May 2014 when Divide was acquired and was previously at BlackBerry working with large multinational deployments.
The inspirational keynotes at FTE Global 2015 will complement a packed three-day schedule of working sessions and workshops, which will provide in-depth insight on the technologies and trends that will drive improvements to passenger processing, operational efficiency and the overall customer experience.
In addition to the Google, Virgin Galactic and Facebook keynotes, other confirmed highlights across the “On the Ground” and “Up in the Air” conference streams include the Beacons and Wearable Technology Symposium, Cabin Connectivity Unleashed in partnership with Runway Girl Network, the exclusive launch of the FTE Onboard 2025 Think Tank, and the first-of-its-kind FTE Collaboration Forum. Delegates will also have access to an exhibition of the latest solutions and services designed to improve the passenger experience, guided tours of McCarran International Airport Terminal 3, and an exciting social agenda, including the Welcome Reception, FTE Awards ceremony and the FTE Global 2015 Gala Party at the Mandalay Bay Resort.
