IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ
Attendees wishing to book accommodation should do so directly through the FTE website. We are aware that a number of unauthorised service providers, including “Housing Services,” “Exhibition Housing Management” and “Trade Show Housing” make contact with attendees to offer hotel reservation services. These companies charge significant booking and credit card fees and can enact stringent cancellation policies. This is unfortunately beyond our control and we urge all attendees to avoid making their reservations with any means other than using the link provided by the FTE team.
Las Vegas is the largest city in the US state of Nevada. Nicknamed the “Entertainment Capital of the World”, it is situated in the Mojave Desert of Southern Nevada. The city features many mega-hotel/casino complexes decorated with lavish care and attention to detail, creating a fantasy-like environment. Exceptional cuisine, first-class hotels and outstanding facilities are just some of the things that will make the Las Vegas experience unforgettable for delegates.
The five-star Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas is the venue for FTE Global 2018, and offers unmatched luxury, fine dining, renowned entertainment, personal service and gaming excitement.
Unlike in previous years, accommodation is now not included in our delegate fees, but we have negotiated a large allocation of rooms at the Mandalay Bay at an incredible rate of $99/night (plus a daily resort fee of $27 and a 13.38% room tax per night) for a Deluxe Room.
Details on how to reserve your hotel room can be found on your FTE Global event registration confirmation email, received upon completion of your registration for the event. We recommend that you book your accommodation as soon as possible to receive preferential room rates, which are available for a limited time only.
As an attendee of Future Travel Experience Global 2018, please note the United States has been operating since 2010 the Visa Waiver Program whereby requirements for travelling visa-free have been enhanced. Nationals of Visa Waiver Program countries will still be eligible to travel without a visa but will have to obtain an approved travel authorisation prior to their travel to the United States.
The Department of Homeland Security and the United States Customs and Border Protection have provided a secure public website with an automated form for you, or a third party, to complete in order to apply for a travel authorisation. Once you enter the required information on the secure website, your application is processed by the system to determine if you are eligible to travel to the United States under the Visa Waiver Program without a visa.
The system will provide you with an automated response, and prior to boarding, a carrier will electronically verify with the United States Customs and Border Protection that you have an approved travel authorisation on file.
Please complete your ESTA application at least 72 hours prior to departure to avoid inconvenience at the airport and to allow sufficient time to apply for a full Visa should your Visa waiver not be authorised.
To apply for your ESTA or for more information please visit: https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov/esta/
Don’t just take our word for it – read what FTE Global 2017 attendees had to say about the show.
“FTE Global was fantastic! It’s very inspirational and it opens the stage for a lot of collaboration and building the future of travel. I was very impressed by the exhibition this year. The diversity of the products and what could be built with the technology that was featured is really a new world.”
“FTE is one of my favourite conferences to go to. I like the fact that you bring in both airlines and airports, and the content is really different. I also enjoy that you bring in different speakers from other industries. I’m a “future” guy and this is a really good place to be. It’s fun because we’re all on the same page – we’re all looking for future technology.”
“The thing that’s really cool about this conference is most industry conferences just focus on tomorrow. With this one, people take a step back, are willing to consider new ideas, and think about the next 5, 10, 15 years.”
“I’ve been quite amazed by the quality of people that I was able to meet from the airline and airport communities, and also from the different innovative suppliers that were showcasing their latest innovations. For start-ups it’s a great event.”
“The networking opportunities are always fantastic at FTE Global. There has been a high level of interaction and engagement between delegates.”
“It is excellent to have the ‘Up in the Air’ stream. The conferences are definitely addressing the right issues. You hear about ideas, visions and aspirations – there is big value to attending FTE Global.”
“FTE Global is a wonderful event. I have met representatives from many different modes of travel, and heard what people need to think about in the next decades. In terms of networking, the right players are here to have conversations with.”
“I have particularly liked that the event helps from a strategic standpoint. FTE Global really allows for a holistic strategic mind-set. The conference sessions have been very relevant in terms of customer experience.”
“It’s great that we’re hearing about disruption. Blurring the lines between industries is very important, and this event does that very effectively.”
“I have been very happy with the conference sessions, which have been projecting us into the future. It’s my first time here at FTE Global and it has exceeded my expectations. I have met lots of different contacts – the event is very good for networking.”
“The panel sessions have been excellent, with good interaction with the audience. It’s a very forward-thinking event and people here are not afraid to talk about the future.”
“I’d heard a lot about FTE Global from industry colleagues and it has certainly met my expectations. The conference sessions have been very interesting, and it has been my pleasure to take part.”
“FTE Global was definitely a great opportunity for us to network and to learn from all the players that are changing the airline industry and the travel industry. During three days we were exposed to lots of insights and we were exposed to a broader way of approaching our business.”
“It has been great attending FTE Global. The conference sessions have really informed our thinking and the Co-creation Forums were particularly good in generating a high level of interaction. FTE Global is highly recommended – I will definitely attend again.”
“The event has been very insightful. I’ve been to a lot of conferences, and the knowledge gained at FTE Global is unique and innovative. It’s very good that the event is all about collaboration. I will take some nice concepts home with me.”
“There are very few events where airlines can get together and talk about what they’re doing. Here at FTE Global, we are able to hear in detail the experiences of others.”
