In this context, the upcoming 2014 TravelDaily Conference, scheduled to take place in Shanghai (September 3-4, 2014), remains a must-attend event.

“China is definitely cynosure of all eyes. Nobody can afford to ignore this lucrative but extremely complex market,” said Charlie Li, founder and CEO of TravelDaily, China’s leading online publisher and event organizer.

The conference has built the reputation of nurturing new ideas and paving way for absorbing debates over the years. The speaker-line up continues to be superlative, with a host of eminent speakers and leaders including:

  • James Liang, Chairman & CEO, Ctrip.com
  • Guangfu Cui, CEO, eLong Inc.
  • Bart Tompkins, Managing Director, China, Amadeus
  • Azran Osman-Rani, CEO, AirAsia X Berhad
  • Justin Luo, Co-founder & CEO, Tujia.com
  • Oliver Hua, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific, Booking.com 
  • Debby Soo, Vice President, Asia Pacific, KAYAK
  • Kevin Wang, General Manager of China, Google Travel
  • Sandeep Bahl, Regional General Manager, Asia, Air New Zealand
TravelDaily, which is partnering with PhoCusWright to host the 7th edition of this event, has moved on from its previous branding China Travel Distribution Summit. Li says the renaming to 2014 TravelDaily Conference exemplifies the diversified attendee mix of this event and growing popularity of the brand.

Li also shared that “China Edge” is the main theme of the conference this year. “This theme highlights China’s growing importance to the world travel and tourism industry,” he said.

New plans for this two-day conference is also in sync with the evolving complexion of the travel industry.

Mobile, Big Data, analytics etc. are driving this change. Today businesses are evaluating how to crack technology innovation? How to incorporate the best of tactics matching with local intricacies of the Chinese market? How to make the most of the traffic while keeping costs down? How to plan and capitalise on a multi-channel and multi-screen strategy?

These critical questions need to be answered even as China asserted its position in the world’s travel market by achieving a 13.6% growth rate in the number of domestic travelers in 2013. China’s air traffic also accomplished 11.7% growth rate on a year-to-year basis. The digital picture too, continues to get rosy. The nation ended last year with around 620 million Internet users and 500 million mobile Internet users. 
 
Attendees stand to gain immensely from key insights and networking opportunities offered by this conference. One can reach more than 800 decision-makers from Chinese OTAs, travel suppliers, intermediaries, travel technology companies and other related sectors to attend this event, approximately 70% of whom are from mainland China and 30% from abroad. 85% of TravelDaily Conference attendees have an executive level title.
