“The THTC 2016 was a great initiative by FICCI to get together industry leaders and experts to discuss relevant and contemporary subjects. The programmes were well thought through and the event was impeccable organised.

World over the travel industry has always been an early adopter of cutting edge technology. In India as well, new age travel companies have been aggressive in adopting new technologies. I was pleasantly surprised to meet and hear so many new entrepreneurs and their attempts at innovation.  The environment is ripe for new technologies to shape the future of our industry and events like this sure help.

“With Travel Tech Conclave, FICCI has identified an area of rapid evolution after years of non adoption of technology by the Industry. Technology is suddenly disrupting and making redundant new processes even before they are implemented. The speakers and subjects picked by the conclave gave the attendees a deep perspective of the leading thinkers and the audience in turn raised some terrific questions. All in all a leading event in the space with lots of eureka moments.”
