Technology is a vital driving factor behind innovations that are affecting our daily life and our business. How can we use technology to differentiate ourselves among competitors and become successful? An impressive group of coaches at the 3rd PATAcademy-HCD will enrich, entertain and help participants reshape their innovative thinking process in a series of interactive programmes. The 3rd PATAcademy-HCD under the theme, “The Future of Tourism Technology” will take place on December 2-4, 2014 in the PATA Engagement Hub at the headquarters of the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) in Bangkok, Thailand.
Mr Mario Hardy, Incoming CEO, PATA said, “We live in a world of fast pace changes where the status quo is being challenged constantly. Over the past decades some leading brands have lost their fame and are now part of history books. Others have launched and are reshaping industries, think Netflix, Uber, AirBnB…. Participants will learn about the businesses that are changing our life and how they may disrupt your sector. What should you do? Disrupt or be disrupted?”
