Expedia Partner Conference: innovation, technology, partnership
LAS VEGAS—Howdy, partners! Exactly the sentiment executives from Expedia Inc. offered the audience at the Expedia Partner Conference here at Caesars Palace.
The theme of the conference, “Travel Rising,” was based off of three main drivers, as Melissa Maher, SVP global partner group, Expedia Lodging Partner Services, outlined at the start of the show: innovation, technology, partnership.
The key, she said, was partnership. “Without it, technology and innovation are meaningless.”
Expedia Inc. is a multi-platform company, composed of such online travel brands as Expedia, Hotels.com, Venere.com, Hotwire and Egencia.
