Travel Tech’s Mission Statement reads “Travel Tech: The leading voice for innovators transforming the global travel marketplace for the benefit of the consumer.”
Like any trade association, we represent a unique and defined constituency. The common thread that binds all our members is that each is a technology company that deploys solutions to connect consumers with travel suppliers, including airlines, hotels, homeowners, car rental companies, rail operators, tour operators, event managers and other travel offerings.
Our mission is multi-faceted. In 2019, we advocated for policies that protect consumers and enhance the marketplace to allow for consumers to effectively comparison shop. We promoted the extraordinary technology that our members deployed for consumers and for their travel supplier customers, helping them grow their businesses by reaching consumers across the globe while streamlining their processes and making their backend and front-end systems more efficient and effective. We defended our industry against unfounded and unsubstantiated attacks by industry groups trying to leverage public policy to limit or inhibit competition in the marketplace. And as we head into 2020, we will remain committed to our mission of giving a voice to the travel industry’s top innovators.
Travel Tech’s members truly are innovators transforming the global travel marketplace. Consumers and suppliers benefit equally from their existence. For anyone traveling this holiday season or for any travel provider greeting customers at their gates and front desks or front doors, remember that it was travel technology that made it all happen.
