Traveler expectations have evolved. New technologies and startups are changing the way they purchase and experience travel. For travel leaders to remain relevant, simply adapting isn't enough -- you must innovate. You must stay ahead of what your customers need and anticipate future trends to stay ahead of the curve. Phocuswright Europe brings together top executives in the travel and hospitality space to discuss the future of travel. Speaking companies include: Ryanair, CitizenM, TripAdvisor, SilverRail Technologies, Airbnb and more.

Attend Phocuswright Europe and understand the trends that connect you to the European traveler.


To thrive in today's travel marketplace, you must understand the travel industry trends that are influencing your customers. That means knowing – not guessing – what travelers want, keeping an eye on competitors of all stripes, and anticipating disruptive trends and technologies before they shake up your business. Today's travelers have a whole new set of wants and needs, and consumer behavior continues to change at a lightning pace.

Europe 2016: Unsettled Yet Undeterred

Europe's economic issues – a fragile and uneven recovery, high unemployment, lagging consumer spending, weak tax revenues – and geopolitical conflicts are having a major impact on Europe's travel landscape. As companies hunker down and governments talk austerity, suppliers look for ways to navigate what has become a very uneven course.

This year's theme, Europe 2016: Unsettled Yet Undeterred, is a reflection on the issues challenging the norms of the world's second largest travel market.

The sense of opportunity is there, but now more than ever, uncovering where these opportunities lie will be key.

Why We Differ

You can find lectures and speeches at any conference.
What you cannot find is the vigorous debate of the issues taking place on Center Stage.

We leverage our travel industry expertise and interviewing skills to uncover truths, probe for clarity and reject sales pitches. The audience questions speakers like at no other conference – challenging them and providing new insights.
