CarTrawler Summer Conference 2018 Preview

May 28, 2018

The time is fast approaching for travel industry leaders from across the world to descend upon the famous K-Club Hotel and Golf Resort, for the annual CarTrawler Summer Conference. This annual event aims to dispense valuable industry knowledge and share CarTrawler’s insights, garnered from its position as the worlds’ leading B2B travel technology platform. With a stellar line-up of guest speakers and members of CarTrawler’s senior leadership team, CarTrawler are showcasing why they are known as the true experts in mobility.

CarTrawler’s newly appointed CEO Cormac Barry will address the audience before handing the mic over to Anton Savage, this years’ CarTrawler Summer Conference host. A key staple of this conference will be a presentation by Chief Product Officer, Peter O’Donovan who promises to enlighten the audience on CarTrawler’s latest developments in mobile technology. CarTrawler’s mobile platform has recently undergone a transformation, with its seamless integration into a number of CarTrawler’s airline partners. Peter is set to illustrate the way in which apps can achieve a high level of success and return by placing discovery and engagement as objectives on par with direct sales.

CarTrawler’s award-winning technology platform, Smartblock will be showcased to the audience and CarTrawler’s Director of Partner Management, Ross McMahon and Deborah Clarke, Director of Product will shine a spotlight on the importance of a smarter product for modern consumers and the way in which Smartblock effectively bridges this gap for partners. Smartblock is a deeper technological integration into partners’ platforms and guarantees incremental uplifts in total car rental conversions.

CRM (Customer Relationship Management) is an indispensable tool which businesses can deploy to enhance their relationship with customers who otherwise may not have a direct interaction with the company for a significant period of time. The implementation of a strategic CRM initiative is an innovative way of ensuring that companies are kept in the pockets of customers throughout their journey. CarTrawler’s Niall O’Toole and Rob White will educate the audience on the importance of maintaining a presence and awareness in the minds of customers, which is made all the more efficient with CarTrawler’s refined CRM toolkit.

A seamless end to end solution for all car rental and ground transportation needs is what originally made CarTrawler’s name, but their expertise as thought leaders in the travel technology industry is just as renowned. To finish this event, CarTrawler’s Chief Technology Officer Bobby Healy will be tackling the Future of Travel Technology, by taking a look at where CarTrawler is planning to go over the next 10 years. Bobby will then move on to moderating a panel debate on ‘Building for the Future’, with panellists from LufthansaID90VolarisRyanair and Emirates. This is guaranteed to be the most entertaining, educational and worthwhile conference of the summer and we hope to see you there.
