A trusted voice in travel

The Covid-19 pandemic has accelerated the pace of change in the travel industry, causing significant disruption to organisations that rely on tourism.

With the most comprehensive air travel data in the sector, ForwardKeys provides unparalleled insight on evolving trends and traveller preferences. This helps tourist boards, travel retailers and other tourism-dependent enterprises to understand how the industry is changing – and how these changes affect their business.

Yet it is not only ForwardKeys clients that benefit from this level of insight, as several of the company’s top minds frequently share their expertise with global audiences at industry events. As guest travel and tourism speakers, ForwardKeys analysts including Olivier Ponti address the latest travel trends, describe how data is transforming the market and advise industry players on extracting the most value from this data.

For speaking enquiries, from panel discussions at events to keynote presentations in English, Spanish, French, Dutch or Mandarin, please contact Olivier Ponti (olivier.ponti@forwardkeys.com) or fill in this form.
