Deeply disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, travel businesses today are faced with changing consumer habits and massive shifts in the value chain. To overcome these challenges and be successful once again, it is time to reimagine the future and prepare for new beginnings.
ASATA is hosting its Travel Summit, taking place from 12th to 14th August. The Summit will bring a series of masterclasses, fireside chats and virtual networking to equip you with the practical tools needed to reimagine travel and take charge of your destiny.
The first day of the Summit, 12th August, will kick off with a discussion by ASATA CEO, Otto de Vries, on “How travel experts can move from survival mode to reinvention mode”. De Vries will be followed by founder of Lucid Ventures Gidon Novick who will provide his insights into how we can “Leverage opportunities in a crisis”.
On 13th August, Director of Big Ambitions, Natalia Rosa will unpack what we can expect from ‘New customers in the new normal’. The second day will also feature a discussion with ASATA’s legal counsel, Novation Consulting, as Elizabeth de Stadler and Ann Jarvis Smith will present their views on ‘Rising above the gathering storm: Risk management in times of COVID-19’.
The third and final day of the Summit will feature a panel discussion, ‘Travel Reimagined Think-Tank’, comprising a panel of esteemed International Guest Speakers, which will be facilitated by Robyn Christie. Bruce Whitfield of Primedia will close the Summit with a discussion on ‘Creativity and courage: Novel problems require novel solutions.’
