Travel & Hospitality Committee

The Hospitality & Travel committee provides a platform for members to interact and address common issues, exchange ideas and share experiences in the travel and hospitality industry in Singapore and the region. With Asia’s rapid growth in the Travel and Hospitality industry, the competitive landscape is changing. Travel growth coming through mobile channels is in Asia higher than anywhere else in the world. An expanding middle class continues to spend more on travel and continued economic development and increases in supply is reinforcing the Asia Pacific market. Learning opportunities are offered within the field of expertise and peers act as a sounding board when there are (local) changes in the industry. Committee members include representatives from airlines, hotels, and (online) and travel companies/agents.
