100 and Counting for our New York Masterclasses
On Wednesday 6 February, our Masterclass programme will be returning to the East Coast for its first US events of 2013.
Travel & Tourism
Kicking off the day is our Mobile Travel & Tourism Masterclass, which already has 50 brands from the sector signed up to attend, including American Airlines, Booking.com, priceline.com, Avis Budget Group, New-York Historical Society, Novotel, JetBlue Airways, and Accor Hotels.
The event is free to attend for senior travel & tourism executives, and will show how they can deploy the latest mobile marketing tools and techniques to generate new business and retain loyal customers across all customer touchpoints.
Delegates will hear from mobile experts during a brief initial presentation, before moving to a more in-depth consultation during the round-table discussions, followed by a keynote from United Airlines' senior manager of emerging technology about its own mobile journey.
