Econsultancy and Adobe spent a few months last summer trying to understand the requirements and challenges facing digital marketers and ecommerce executives in travel.

The report, produced to coincide with the Travel Technology Europe event in London this week, was the result of a series of in-depth interviews with nearly 200 senior figures from hotels, airlines, travel agencies, cruise operators and car rental companies from around the world.

Results are broken down into a series of areas, covering digital transformation, customer experience, mobile, data, personalisation and social media.

Mohammad Gaber, head of industry strategy and marketing, travel and hospitality, says:

“Delivering personalized digital and physical experiences in the travel and hospitality industry is not a new tactic.

“It’s always been pursued to a limited extent, and has traditionally focused on luxury and high-end segments.

“Delivering personalization at scale was hampered by affordability. However, the disruptive innovation of increasing data availability and mobile has changed the nature of the game, enabling us to know much more about the guest and respond to those inputs.

“Personalization is now scalable, which makes it affordable for delivery to the masses. Combined with improved product offerings, it has the potential to deliver a new golden era of travel.”
