MOVING THE NEEDLE WITH GUEST INTELLIGENCE Category: eTravel Lab Day 2 Date: March 10, 2016 Time: 5:30 pm - 6:00 pm Location: Hall 6.1, eTravel Lab Friday’s outlook keynote at the ITB Berlin Convention will be hosted by the now familiar face of Doug Lansky. Lansky is renowned as a thought leader in global tourism. His presentations are entertaining and thought provoking and his previous appearances at ITB have filled the auditoriums. We asked him how he sees the current state of play… The digital landscape is constantly changing, with destination marketers trying to figure out what’s the best use of their time and money.

But it’s important to look at the numbers... with a younger demographic A FEW YEARS AGO, IT WAS FACEBOOK AND TWITTER. NOW INSTAGRAM IS THE FLAVOUR OF THE MONTH flipping quickly through photos, how powerful are those impressions and how much to they contribute to putting heads in beds? Unlike most speakers on social media, Doug isn’t selling any social media services... just looking at the data. But that’s just one slice. Destinations are also trying to figure out if they should be in the booking and reservation business, or just allow the likes of to take over. Should they continue to maintain a tourist office or are smartphones and WiFi taking over that role more effectively? So it’s all about trying to get a firmer grip on what technology is useful and when… Sending a digital room key Doug Lansky Travel journalist and author to someone’s phone is a nice tech trick, and we may end up all using that in the near future, but it’s an example of how we often get caught up in the bells and whistles of travel technology instead of the game changers that influence behaviour, spending and sustainability. I want to focus on where digital is making larger strides forward and where it could be implemented to carrying tourism into the future.
