Case Studies: Success


Phocuswright events offer Distil Networks a great opportunity to meet with industry luminaries and contribute to the conversation on how technology trends are impacting the travel industry. Phocuswright community members are sophisticated when it comes to understanding how technology investments like Distil Networks can protect customer data, pricing information, incentive packages, and cross-sell and upsell opportunities. Budgets these days are tight, but we strongly recommend Phocuswright as a great investment.
