In a bid to bring together the travel industry and pave a path to recovery, a new podcast has launched to discuss the future. Travel Market Life will cover wholesale travel, hotel technology, travel supply and distribution, media, sales and marketing.

The podcast will launch with 15 episodes, the first being ‘#HotelTechClinic A COVID-19 Recovery Masterclass’. In partnership with travel technology expert Michael McCartan, the event will see panellists discuss how technology can boost the industry. The first event will cover robots, blockchain, contactless technologies, staff management systems and robotic process automation (RPA).

The event will be hosted by Haynes MarComs director Ryan Haynes. Having founded Travel Market Life, he explained: “We understand that with many staff furloughed it can be difficult to keep up with changes and developments that have been happening during lockdown and are continuing to evolve as a result of COVID-19. Therefore we want to help businesses be as prepared as they can be for the bounce back.”
