With the endorsement of a broad range of industry associations, including HEDNA, CASMA, ETOA, UK Inbound, The Tourism Society and TTI and the backing of distribution innovators such as Google, Yahoo! and Amadeus, the Travel Distribution Summit is the meeting place for European travel suppliers and distributors. It is your chance to hear the latest thinking, strategies and success stories from the biggest names in travel marketing, sales, pricing and technology.

Said Tim Gunstone, Founder of EyeforTravel, “The Travel Distribution Summit is the fastest and cheapest way to form profitable new distribution partnerships, strengthen old alliances, take a peek at the future and ensure that your pricing, sales and marketing strategies are on track.”

Every year, discussions at this event help shape the future of European travel distribution, and this year will be no exception. Agenda highlights include:
