Gulf-based travel and hospitality companies that use disruptive technologies to boost personalization and remove friction for customers are likely to become future market leaders, according to experts speaking at Arabian Travel Market (ATM) 2019.

In a panel discussion titled ‘The Big Picture – Who Will Sell Travel Best in the Future?’, which took place on ATM’s Global Stage, representatives from Booking.com, Sabre Corporation, Google, Facebook and Emirates explored the potential benefits and pitfalls of technology implementation in the Gulf’s tourism sector.

Vaikka esineiden internetin (IoT), tekoälyn (AI), koneoppimisen ja personointitekniikan kaltaisilla innovaatioilla on potentiaalia lisätä tehokkuutta koko toimialalla, paneelien edustajat korostivat, että operaattoreiden tulisi aina miettiä, miten uudet sovellukset todennäköisesti vaikuttavat asiakaskokemukseen .

FEAAD Talaat, kumppanipalveluiden aluejohtaja - MEA, Booking.com, sanoi: ”Jotkut meistä luulevat olevamme häiriöiden aikakaudella, mutta luulen, että olemme jo läpäisseet sen. Luulen, että olemme voimakkaiden asiakkaiden aikakaudella.

“We think of ourselves as a customer-first AI company. This means that the application of any new technology is done to enhance the experience for our customers. We don’t experiment with emerging technologies for the sake of it. If an innovation doesn’t take friction away, we don’t invest in it.”

Airports and airlines increased investments in information technology (IT) from 5.6 per cent in 2017 to 7.5 per cent in 2018, accounting for an overall investment of USD 30 billion. By implementing IoT technology to optimise flight itineraries, the industry could save the same amount in fuel savings alone over the next 15 years, according to research conducted by Colliers on behalf of ATM 2019.

In addition to efficiency savings, panellists noted that the GCC’s tourism industry must identify areas in which disruptive technologies can be implemented to ensure a seamless customer experience.

Terry Kane, Head of Travel, Auto, Telco and Financial Services – Middle East, North Africa and Pakistan, Facebook, said: “In travel today, there is still an enormous amount of friction at every step of the journey and mobile solutions can help to remove a lot of this. Expectations are constantly changing. The moment a company solves a friction-related problem, customers’ expectations are reset.

“For example, if I want the most personal experience possible, it’s probably going to be through WhatsApp or Facebook. We should be able to reserve flights, get our boarding passes and book accommodation through WhatsApp or Facebook directly […] These platforms should be your personal concierge for multiple things in life, and travel is certainly one of those areas.”

The comprehensive implementation of personalisation technology could also lead to significant benefits for the Middle East’s hotel industry, according to Colliers, increasing revenues by more than 10 per cent and reducing costs by more than 15 per cent.

Ben Vinod, Senior VP and Chief Scientist, Sabre Corporation, said: “We live in an AI, machine learning-driven landscape, so a key focus for our sector is intelligent retailing. Consumers want to see content that is relevant for them; they don’t want to see generic information. This is something that will change over the next couple of years.

“One example is that you don’t always have to show the lowest price on your website. You may want to show the best price based on the customer’s preferences. Segmentation is important because it allows you to deliver relevant content to a portion of the population. We also see a need for one-to-one personalisation. We want to be able to give you a tailored response that is meaningful to you – as a segment of one.”

Keskiviikkoon 1. toukokuuta saakka ATM 2019: ssä yli 2,500 näytteilleasettajaa esittelee tuotteitaan ja palvelujaan Dubai World Trade Centerissä (DWTC). Alan ammattilaiset pitivät Lähi-idän ja Pohjois-Afrikan (MENA) matkailualan barometrinä. ATM: n viime vuoden painos toivotti tervetulleeksi 39,000 XNUMX ihmistä, jotka edustavat näyttelyn historian suurinta näyttelyä.
