The turismo.as summit in London was the perfect event to discuss the most important issues of the tourism industry. The Consumer changing behaviour and the new patterns in information acquisition, decision making and purchasing are impacting the current landscape in a formidable way. Having the industry leaders debating over different key issues and having the opportunity to see how other companies are facing this new environment was very useful and enriching.

A positive start for a conference that is sure to become an annual fixture in the UK's must-do seminars on social and digital in travel.
Steve Keenan (Co-founder at Travel Perspective)
The conference was a great success. Mr Juan Otero was able to bring together some of brightest lights in their relative fields from all across Europe. This was the culmination of a lengthy process which can only begin with the knowledge of who those people are. Juan's constant connection and involvement with the fields of technology and tourism made this easy, but this, in no way, should take away from the achievement.
