What's the Next Destination?


March 2, 2019. 0700 - 1200

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Pre-Global Business Conference has been rescheduled to March 2, 2019.


About the Conference

Destination marketing has changed ever since the rapid development and evolution of technology in the form of social media, analytics and mobile applications. Coupled with the rise of personalisation in consumer travel experience, destination marketing cannot brush aside the effects of the internet in its capacity to promote the harmonious integration of connectivity of people, processes, data, and sustainability. The next destination will change the perceptions of visitors throughout the stages of their experience and create a significant challenge for all tourism stakeholders to evolve, blur the boundaries between the digital and the physical landscape, and upgrade the service quality of destinations.
