This November, make sure you save the date for Mastercard TechXibit 2017. On the fence about going or not? Let us help!

Mastercard TechXibit is organised by Mobiliari Group, publisher of Indonesia Tatler. Sponsored by Mastercard, the exhibition is dedicated to a tech-savvy audience with a strong connection to technology-based industries, especially in the travel sector. This year, Mastercard TechXibit features the main theme of “How Technology Drives the Travel Industry”.

The topic is inspired by the rapid growth of technology-based industries in Indonesia. In this digital era, people can now book tickets and hotels online, and even share their travel experiences, which is why travel agencies and related companies are adjusting their business plans to include a combination of technological advancements and a traditional bricks-and-mortar business approach.

The digital revolution has significantly impacted almost every aspect of life, and technology has totally transformed the travel landscape. In the past, people always stayed in hotels rather than in people’s homes, but thanks to technology, and predominantly through travel blogs and sites like AirBnB, they get the chance to crash in strangers’ homes. Meanwhile, social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have also changed the way travellers interact and research recommended destinations.

This exhibition will be held at The Westin Jakarta from November 2 to 3. The conference will invite experts in the travel industries, professionals in technology-related businesses, entrepreneurs, and travel influencers and bloggers. Whether you are working in technology or not, we believe that this conference should find a spot in your schedule, and here are three reasons why.

 

1. Hear from the experts

Mastercard TechXhibit 2017 will feature inspirational talk sessions that will focus on giving you valuable insights about technology and travel. Sessions are led by a line-up of experienced business leaders, strategists, practitioners, and peers, with topics covering disruptions and disruptors in technology and the travel industry through to the art of social media influencing and how social media has changed the way people travel, and more.

 

2. Learn skills and stay up-to-date

Trends, new strategies, and innovations in technology and the travel industry happen all the time. So, to always stay up-to-date, you need a platform that provides the opportunity to get a full range of knowledge. And Mastercard TechXhibit 2017 is not only dedicated to technology and travel enthusiasts in the region, but will also be an amazing event at which people open up to share their experiences, knowledge, and insights, and to learn skills from each other and to stay up-to-date.

3. Multiple networking opportunities

Mastercard TechXhibit 2017 will have tons of learning packed into two days and there will be booths when you can explore products and innovations, but you’ll also have the opportunity to relax and get to know other people. Multiple networking opportunities will be available to all visitors to build meaningful business relationships with peers and industry experts. From there, you will have the opportunity to collaborate and hear new ideas or perspectives. You may hear what others are doing and be inspired to implement something similar, or you might find a mentor or even become one. This new network can be used to access even bigger technological opportunities.
