WiT Europe: Around Asia in One Hour

Ya, right? But you bet we will certainly give it a “fast forward” go as we take you through the accelerated changes in consumer adoption, product experimentation and innovation in one of the world’s most dynamic and can-do regions. From the scaling of established travel giants and how they have taken deeper roots during the pandemic, to the changes in consumer behaviour as they move on to e-commerce platforms and superapps and how that all affects the wider travel eco-system. We gather the players who’ve been on the ground in Asia the past two years and navigated the turbulence and uncertainty to emerge into the light of recovery.
