TTE Preview: Comtec combines social and mobile in new visual search technology

Travel Technology specialist Comtec is poised to unveil new personalised visual search technology for travel firms at next month’s Travel Technology Europe trade show.

The event takes places on February 5 and 6 at the Earl’s Court exhibition centre in west London and marks its 10th anniversary this year.

On its stand Comtec will be demonstrating the new Visual Search technology driven by its TravelCRM and Travelink systems.

It has been designed for use in call centres, on the web and on mobile, and will deliver content-rich results to users.

These will be generated by the booking history of the individual customer as well as recommendations and referrals from social networks.

Jon Pickles, Comtec product director, said: “These are exciting times driven by technology, and we want to go against the grain of traditional search.

“Using our expertise in travel solutions we want to deliver future technologies that provide a visually stunning and engaging proposition, with personalised content across mobile and web.”

Comtec will be on stand A1 at TTE 2013.

Travolution is a media partner for the show and will be on stand C4. We will also be running two session in the conference theatre.

The first on Tuesday February 5 at 1.30pm will look at the future of distribution with a panel consisting of representatives from all three major GDSs and Open Jaw Technologies.

The second on February 6 at 11.40 will look at social media and the social graph with Gogobot and Facebook.
