Hannes Lösch to speak on AI and travel revolution at ICTT 2019

It’s hard to spot an industry that’s not been impacted by Artificial Intelligence. Tourism industry is also leveraging the transforming benefits of AI, which is helping make travel experiences more niche and targeted towards travellers.

Hannes Lösch, the founder of Limendo, a technology and consulting company based in Bolzano, South Tyrol, will speak on AL and travel revolution at the International Conference on Tourism Technology 2019 at Le Meridian in Kochi on September 26.

“AI helps analyze the traveller profile by looking at their preferences, budget, location, eating habits, and thereby, helping produce personalized and tailor-made suggestions for them. It is sure that the session by Hannes Lösch at ICTT 2019 will add more value to the tourism/travel professionals,” said Manu P V, Secretary, Association of Tourism Trade Organizations, India.
