It has been my pleasure to be associated with PhoCusWright over the last 7 years. I met Philip Wolf in the late 1980s and I have always repected Philip’s ability to understand emerging trends and push the industry towards a more user centric approach to online and offline travel. I have been attending Philip’s conference since its inception. Each year Philip and his team strive to provide an innovative approach to conference execution and this year was no exception. With a theme “Travel 2.0 Confronts the Establishment” the PhoCusWright team again pushed the envelope by breaking down the barrier between conference content and networking opportunities. Each attendee was able to listen to the on stage content through a wireless ear bud while still interacting with tradeshow participants. I applaud the PhoCusWright team for another successful innovative conference.
