Innovation Everywhere

Following a broader trend among venture capitalists and other investors, the size of individual funding rounds has ballooned since 2010, according to Phocuswright.

Travel sales, which totaled $1.3 trillion in 2014, will keep rising and competition will be intense. Uber, Airbnb and Qunar are only a few of the companies disrupting travel – snatching the lion’s share of funding, innovating fast and stealing customers from their competitors.

As a travel executive, understanding this new dynamic is critical to your success. At Northstar Travel Group, we provide the insights and platforms you need to make the right decisions and grow your business. Whether it’s launching your innovation on stage at The Travel Innovation Summit, receiving custom consultation with a Phocuswright analyst, or delving into market dynamics of the APAC region, we have you covered.
