Season 10 theme:

Shaping the future of travel through radical collaborations and partnerships.

Collaboration between governments, travel industry stakeholders and technology companies will be crucial in shaping the future of travel. This season, we task teams to consider re-engineering the travel ecosystem through globalization, governance and partnerships to elevate traveler experiences. How can strategic partnerships help expand the globalization of travel platforms? What will the adoption of AI look like and how can travel companies and government agencies partner with this emerging technology? How can public and private parties come together to drive the regulatory and infrastructural changes the world desperately needs to increase travel efficiency or to accelerate the transition to a greener future?
