The very essence of travel and hospitality lies in connecting people to each other as well as to places and experiences. However, consumer behavior is constantly changing, competition continues to heat up, and the industry, though witnessing consolidation at various levels, continues to be highly fragmented.

Artificial Intelligence, in particular, is proving to be useful for a number of processes and functions across businesses in the travel and hospitality space, both in terms of internal operations and enhancing the experience for the end-users.

We were blissfully unaware of the looming threat of the COVID-19 global pandemic. In fact, several parts of the world failed to take notice of this crown-shaped virus that was about to bring everything to a grinding halt, until March 11, when the World Health Organization officially announced it as a pandemic.

How Security, Privacy, and Trust Can Help Travel Brands Offer a More Human Experience

Article | February 24, 2020

To deliver the richer, more fulfilling experiences that travelers crave, travel brands depend on a growing cache of customer data. More data can mean more opportunities to deliver an elevated human experience, personalized to each traveler’s needs and wants. But many brands are opaque about just what data they are collecting, and customers often don’t have any way to know how it may be used, how well it is secured, and what, if any, control they have over their personal information. Hence, the trust that travelers place in the industry is at risk, which ultimately could impact their travel choices.
