Mind the Gap – are you ready for the Technology Challenge?

Are you ready for the tourism technology challenge?

With technology evolving every single day, it can be difficult to keep up with the ever changing technological landscape that could help your business grow. This poses a challenge for many tourism businesses and entrepreneurs, and that’s why the Wales Tourism Alliance with Visit Wales are bringing members of the tourism, hospitality and leisure industry together at their annual conference and supper this November.

The conference, Mind the Gap - are you ready for the Technology Challenge? comes to Swansea’s Liberty Stadium on November 2nd - 3rd 2014, and for the first time ever, will feature an exciting Digital Tourism exhibition staged by Visit Wales, as part of its Digital Tourism Business Framework Programme.

The conference, which takes place on November 3rd, will provide delegates with the opportunity to explore the very many technological challenges that face the industry. Attendees will learn how these can make good businesses better in order to reach more customers or build higher yields, through a mix of high profile speakers from within the tourism industry and other areas such as marketing and social media. Delegates will also be able to take part in a number of interactive workshops and listen to presentations that will inform and amuse, whilst challenging many of your business ideas and practices.  Conference delegates will also be able to view a wide range of products and services in the free Digital Tourism exhibition by a number of exhibitors from drones, smart phone apps, virtual reality devices and other products that could prove to be valuable assets to your business.

The conference is priced at £75.00 plus VAT per member. Delegates are welcome to attend the annual WTA dinner buffet on Sunday 2nd November, priced at £29 plus VAT; registration opens from 5:30pm with drinks reception & buffet from 6:00pm at the Liberty Stadium, where guests will be entertained by a guest speaker Frank Hennessey, have the chance to meet colleagues in an informal and relaxed setting and catch up on all the latest industry news. The main conference follows on 3rd November, and runs from 9:00am until 5:00pm.

We hope you will join us in tackling the technology challenge. For more information and to register, visit our website www.wtaconference.com or contact Quadrant on 02920 694900.
