Over the centuries, Warsaw has been plundered and invaded many times by forces from Sweden and France to Russia. It suffered heavy damage from German bombs in World War II. Yet, Warsaw today is a new, vibrant city that has been largely restored to its pre-World War II. Among the tourist attractions in Warsaw, Old Town, with its palace, churches, and castles, is not to be missed.

How blockchain is reinventing travel loyalty programs for both brands and consumers

Article | February 28, 2020

According to the latest Bond Brand Loyalty Report, memberships across industries continue to rise and now average 14.8 per person. But - considering total global spend on loyalty programs is estimated to be $323 billion in 2019 – a more critical statistic is: on average people are active in less than half (6.7) of the programs they belong too. More often than not, loyalty programs do not drive loyal behavior. The travel sector has some of the lowest satisfaction rates, according to Bond’s survey of 55,000 consumers in more than 20 markets around the world. Only 37% of hotel loyalty members and 38% of car rental members say they are satisfied with their programs; airlines, meanwhile, fare slightly better at 42%.

Travel Trends 2020 — Technology

Article | February 28, 2020

Technology’s a double-edged sword, and it will just get sharper. On one hand, it’s wonderful to have a complete toolbox in one hand (camera, photo library and editor, tickets and itinerary, currency converter, maps and navigation) and access to the wider online world. On the other, it will become even more a DIY world. Not connecting to the cloud? Well you’ll have to Google the issue and fix that. Contacts not loading? Same. Check in online, get to the airport, fix your bag tags and put them on the belt. Tech will become better and more frustrating all at the same time in 2020 and beyond.

Will the travel industry adopt white box AI?

Article | February 28, 2020

I recently attended a Venture Beat webinar entitled: 3 Keys To Moving Toward White-Box, Explainable AI. The panel discussed varying degrees of transparency in respect to understanding the output from artificial intelligence, the worst being a black box where the underlying decision is masked in AI algorithms. So what does this all mean? Of course, in the travel industry, we traditionally have a different term for a “black box”, but in the context of AI, a black box output implies that it may be challenging for the target audience to understand the rational for a given decision. The key here is defining the target audience.
