All Day

Travolution European Summit (Additional delegate fee applies.)

As the travel industry looks to technology to rebuild following the devastation of Covid-19 there’s never been a more important year for the Travolution European Summit.

With the pandemic laying waste to the traditional programme of face-to-face events in the sector, this year’s Summit is a unique opportunity to network with industry peers.

We aim to deliver up to 400 senior professionals from the travel and hospitality world from brands and the technology and digital services providers that support them.

After last year’s Reset, Reboot, Restart virtual summit, this year will be dominated by discussion and debate about how technology is underpinning the recovery.

Our programme will feature senior speakers from leading brands within the sector, as well experts from outside travel to inspire our audience’s innovative passion.

The future of travel is driven by those willing to challenge and re-imagine the industry, and who are united by a shared vision for the sector. We look forward to bringing those people together again during Jacob Media Group’s first Global Travel Week to help set the post-pandemic agenda for travel.
