Passenger Technology Solutions (PTS), the brand new event focused on how technology can help create a seamless passenger journey, has revealed the major companies and cutting-edge start-ups that will speak at the inaugural show.
The event, which takes place in Hamburg from 10-12th April, will explore how technology can be ‘in the DNA’ of the passenger journey, featuring speakers including Jorge De Luis Sierra, Cabin Interior Design Manager, Airbus, as well as representatives from Norwegian and US rail operator Amtrak.
PTS will also feature some of the most exciting disruptors and pioneers in the industry, with contributions from social listening experts Black Swan Data, design consultancy Reaktor and brand experience management agency branding.aero.
In addition to exploring travel’s most topical technologies, PTS will also showcase best practice: for example, the newly reopened Changi Airport, where the entire passenger journey is designed to be seamless and automated.
The event is co-located with existing events Passenger Experience Conference, Aircraft Interiors Expo and World Travel Catering and Onboard Services Expo, and is designed to offer a holistic view of the passenger experience, with speakers tackling trends such as big data, biometrics and artificial intelligence.
Archana Sharma, Exhibition Director, Passenger Technology Solutions, said:
“Our programme brings together established companies and brand new players to explore the most exciting and significant trends shaping travel today. Our programme is designed to take attendees on a journey into the future, inspiring and educating them on how technology can create a truly seamless passenger experience.
“We look forward to welcoming our speakers to Hamburg and to working with them in the meantime to ensure that the first show is a huge success.”
Gillian Jenner, Editorial Director, Passenger Technology Solutions, said:
“My experience putting together speaker programmes in this space goes back many years, but curating the line-up for PTS has been especially interesting. It has been an opportunity to ‘zoom out’ from specific technologies and trends to consider what these innovations can achieve when combined.
“It is this focus on the bigger picture that I believe makes PTS a must-attend for anyone involved with passenger experience – whether in aviation, rail or one of the many other services that shape the journey.”
