Navigating New Travel Trends
Few industries are more heavily influenced by global events than travel & hospitality. From environmental pressures to shifting business and leisure travel behaviours, economic influences to global pandemics, this is an industry where players need to innovate rapidly to stay on top of the game.
Whilst the total number of global tourism activities keeps rising, the aviation, travel & hospitality industry currently faces a lot of different challenges and disruptions. This results from intense price competition within the market and increasing customer demands; travellers want their entire travel experience to be personalized and connected as travel becomes an outward expression of their individual lifestyle decisions, both in their private lives and in business.
Therefore companies need to understand and fulfill the customer needs and expectations whilst not being too aggressive in their personalized marketing. New market participants like Google, Amazon, booking.com etc. keep challenging the existing aviation, travel and hospitality companies to adapt to the new digital paradigm.
More and more the competition rages on as to who will own the relationship with the customer and who is able to turn those into profitable long term interactions. In addition, the global awareness for sustainability grows and fuel prices keep rising which makes it hard for airlines to be profitable with their ticket prices. This means they need to tap into further revenue streams like ancillaries, trip enhancements and a smart integration of partners.
When it comes to digital transformation, we help our clients to confidently navigate industry disruption. From pre-trip to post trip, we engineer fully connected traveller experiences that build emotional connections and drive better business outcomes. From reducing the carbon footprint of the aviation industry, to transforming the in-hotel customer experience, from far flung destinations to environmentally friendly staycations, we’re innovating across the world to deliver the next frontier of digital travel.
