From the moment of booking through to the collection of baggage at an arrival destination, the future of travel will be explored and shaped as part of Future Travel Experience 2011, hosted by Vancouver Airport Authority.
The global forum for travel industry stakeholders happens September 7 to 9 at the Westin Bayshore Hotel & Convention Centre, and will focus on the end-to-end travel process from the passenger point of view. As part of the three-day conference and exhibition, the worlds’ travel facilitators will meet to launch their future passenger initiatives and view the latest concepts from vendors.
Keynote speaker Rohit Talwar, a renowned global futurist and author, will open the conference with an address titled “Airport 2030 – Reinventing the Passenger Experience.” Airport Authority Vice President of Simplified Passenger Travel, Kevin Molloy, and Director of Simplified Passenger Travel, Paul Mewett, will also present as part of the conference.
Vancouver Airport Authority is renowned as an industry leader in terms of simplifying passenger travel. In 2002, YVR became the first airport in the world to introduce the self-serve check-in solution using common-use kiosks and since, a number of programs to expedite and simplify travel have been pioneered at YVR.
