Voyager HQ is partnering with leading companies in the travel industry, including Fareportal and Amadeus, to host the second annual Travel Disruption Summit in New York City on May 22, 2019. The Travel Disruption Summit is a full-day symposium gathering the chief luminaries and change makers in travel, tourism, and hospitality innovation.

This event is highly curated, with all 300+ attendees vetted to ensure focused discussions and actionable outcomes towards the advancement of the industry. Attendees represent the leading voices and minds in the travel and technology industries, taking part in content sessions with high-growth startup founders, technologists and industry champions.

Content at the Summit will be sorted into three tracks: Aviation, Hospitality, and Tourism.
As a key part of the programming, attendees will participate in focused roundtable sessions exploring subtopics within each track: Discovery/Inspiration, Search/Aggregation, Inventory/Distribution, Payments, Mobility, Experiences, Corporate Travel, Sustainability & Conservation, Loyalty, Luxury Travel, and Operations.

These intimate conversations are moderated by startup founders and enterprise leaders from Voyager HQ’s network who are developing solutions or making an impact in their own vertical. Each table includes industry leaders, venture capitalists, startups and media professionals to contribute diverse inputs to the discussion.

The day’s program culminates with a selection of early-stage, visionary startup founders pitching their innovations for the near future of travel, with all attendees casting a vote for the winner. The day concludes with an afterparty in New York City to continue the conversations and formalize the partnerships initiated during the Summit.
