The conference scheduled for March 19th, 2019 is a joint venture with Israel’s primary economic paper, The Marker. The focal objective of the conference is technology and innovation in travel for professionals

Globalization in the past decade brought a significant increase in the tourism business worldwide becoming a paramount phenomenon with the ultimate social, cultural and economic influence as well as bringing companies to reorganize their activities

The second half of the 20th century was branded by a global economy with companies launching divisions worldwide creating a “novel” sector of travelers i.e. businessmen, traveling the world promoting commercial goals as well as not giving up on leisure all within the same trip

Technological developments brought about dispersal in various tourism divisions namely, aviation, hotels, insurance and car rentals, personal & data security, mobility and digitization for the business traveler,innovation, low cost prices that alter pricing in the field etc
