Travolution Summit 2022: Leading UK OTAs lined up to talk growth
Three of the UK’s leading OTAs will provide insight into how travel firms can return to growth following the COVID-19 pandemic.
Senior executive from On The Beach, Loveholidays and Travel Republic will speak at next month’s Travolution European Summit about recovery from two lost years for firms in travel.
The annual conference will take place on May 4 in London and will feature expert speakers from the online travel sector and technology specialists.
Executive interview sessions will feature On The Beach chief customer officer Zoe Harris, Loveholidays chief executive Donat Rétif, and Travel Republic managing director Antonio Felino.
Harris will speak about how COVID has changed On The Beach’s “view of the world” and helped it to “find its voice” as a consumer champion to provide a better holidays as well as a “brilliant booking service”.
Rétif now heads up Loveholidays, which was named by the Sunday Times as the UK’s fastest-growing company in 2019 and is marking its tenth birthday this year.
As well as giving his views on the sector having taken up his first role in travel, he will talk about the important role that OTAs play in offering consumers choice and affordable package holidays.
Travel Republic’s Felino will highlight the vital role people and digital skills will play in the post-COVID recovery while setting out the dnata Travel-owned OTAs digital strategy and approach to serving the customer.
Lee Hayhurst, Travolution executive editor, said: “All three of our exec OTA speakers took up their current roles during or just as COVID-19 prompted the biggest challenge the travel sector has ever faced.
“The insight they will bring to the summit will be fascinating. All three brands have demonstrated during the last two decades that it is possible to break into travel and grow at enormous speed through providing customers what they want.
“Our Summit theme is all about finding growth at speed, putting your business into hyperdrive mode to put the damage of the pandemic behind you as quickly as possible, so who better for our delegates to hear from?”
