Future Travel Experience Europe 2018 - Testimonials

Read what recent delegates and exhibitors have said about the show:

“The first thing I like is that it’s forward leaning. I’m a digital innovation manager so for me it’s not always about today; it’s also about tomorrow and what will happen next so this event has been impressive for me. FTE is the only one that does this in a good way.”

Mats Berglind, Digital Innovation Manager, Swedavia:

“We had a very good turnout during the conferences and very good discussions. The presentations were very interesting and covering new trends. There has been a strong airline focus, which is great so we can see what airlines are thinking too. The startup sessions were also very good and the co-creation sessions provided a platform for a more active debate.”

Arturo Garcia-Alonso, Airport Operations Expert, Munich Airport

“One of the areas that we are focusing on is the travel experience, so we are working with airport and airlines. One thing that is really good is that you have a lot of the aviation companies like airlines and airports. I also really like the networking app.”

Mikko Sjoblom, Business Development Executive, Digitalist

“There is a great mix of airlines and airports and travel business attending, which makes it very valuable for the online travel world and doing business with them.”

Valerie Ringrose Fitzsimons, Senior Business Development Manager, CarTrawler

“I was particularly interested in the Digital & Innovation conference and it was very interesting to see what other companies do in terms of innovation.”

David Kasipovic, Innovation Department, Lufthansa

“It is my first time at FTE and I have had a very good experience. It is definitely different than other conferences. The Co-creation session was a great way to bring together people that didn’t know each other and we saw that after an hour and a half of brainstorming we could come up with an idea of a product that people like.”

Gilles Brentini, IT – Airport Innovation Manager, Geneva Airport

“What I really like about this event is that it is about reinventing the future together and you can really feel that everybody that has a role in creating this ecosystem is here, such as airlines, airports, and other companies. So, this really inspires me.”

Maïte Oonk, Research Coordinator, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines:

“I have had more one-to-one meetings here, and I think this actually brings a lot of value. In terms of the keynote speeches, they were really good, especially the Amazon keynote was fantastic. Also, there are quite a few new companies exhibiting, which again brings a lot of value, as we are not just meeting the same companies every year.”

Simon Mayer, Managing Director, Advanced Identity Solutions

“I really like the format of the elevator pitches, because there is often not enough time to go to each stand, so that has been a great way to quickly get an idea of the companies. Now that I know the conference, I’d definitely be back next year.”

Patrick Bohl, Head of Retail and Advertising, Budapest Airport

“I was proud to be a finalist in the startup competition and I’ve had six really good scheduled meetings and some really good walk-ups. It’s given us the visibility – being in the right place at the right time – and it has been fantastic to get a leg-up as a startup.”

Brian Whelan, CEO, Travacoin

“You always have good speakers at FTE events and I’ve liked the fact that you’ve also had a smaller stage in the exhibition hall. It’s been a really good event with great networking and collaborative working opportunities. Overall, it’s been a really good event.”

Jon Norris, Senior Director – Marketing, Panasonic

“Day 1 was really good with lots of traffic and the quality was really high."

Borry Vrieling, eezeetags

“Epic. We’ve got 13 solid leads from big airlines. The networking tool is awesome. We do a lot of trade shows and I have to say the networking tool has made a big difference.”

Al Tredinnick, Business Development Manager, 15Below

“We’ve very happy. It’s been one of the best shows for us so far as it’s been very focused. We had a lot of meetings set up before the show and I think we’ve had more than 20 airline meetings, and we’ve received very good feedback.”

Diego Cachero Rodriguez, CEO, 3D SeatMapVR

“It’s been a great show for us with lots of good meetings; the number of airlines here has been good for us. The app has been very efficient.”

Fitzhugh Patrick, Director, Business Development, Fusion & Mark Brown, VP Sales & Client Accounts, EMEA, Fusion

“We have a booth here and it has been a very good event for us the past two days. We have met a lot of airlines which we are targeting because our product. After last year’s FTE in Singapore, we managed to secure partnerships with Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines and we really launched the business in that sense. The conferences here were really good.”

Janne Kyllönen, Founder, QuietOn
