Big Data, chat-bots and ‘the Amazon of the Sky’ on show at first ever Passenger Technology Solutions event

An array of exciting start-ups and tech pioneers are confirmed to exhibit at Passenger Technology Solutions (PTS) – a brand new, global event that takes place in Hamburg from 10-12 April 2018.

The event, which is the latest to be added to the annual Passenger Experience Week portfolio, will explore the potential of technology to join the dots across the passenger journey to deliver a more seamless and integrated experience.

A selection of names have been confirmed, including Toronto-based company GuestLogix, chat-bot developer Aviget, systems integrator KIU System Solutions, and French Duty Free disruptor airfree.

These exhibitors will join other technology suppliers to showcase their products and services to travel operators from around the world, each looking to offer their passengers a more connected and personalised journey.

The products and services due to be demonstrated include airfree – the first digital marketplace dedicated to inflight shopping – and GuestLogix’s cutting-edge airline commerce platform, which uses data analytics to enhance passenger experience and generate ancillary revenue for airlines.

Archana Sharma, Exhibition Director, Passenger Technology Solutions, commented: “We launched Passenger Technology Solutions to inspire companies across the entire travel ecosystem to take a look at the bigger picture. Technological advances have transformed every aspect of the industry beyond recognition, and now an exciting challenge lies ahead: how to combine these travel innovations to create the ultimate overall passenger experience.

“We are excited to reveal just a few of the start-ups and game-changers that will be joining us in Hamburg in April, and look forward to announcing further exhibitors and speakers in the coming weeks.”

Alongside the exhibition, PTS will offer three days of educational sessions and networking to explore the future of travel. The event will not only cover aviation, but also rail – putting the entire end-to-end passenger journey in the frame.

PTS will take place during Passenger Experience week, which attracts over 18,400 visitors and more than 1,000 airline attendees. The new event will be co-located at the Hamburg Messe with Aircraft Interiors Expo, the Passenger Experience Conference and World Travel Catering & Onboard Services Expo.
