Destination Competition & The Future of Insights

The competitive landscape in travel is rapidly evolving. Video and social have become critical in travel planning; a rising, global middle class is injecting new travelers daily; emerging destinations are heating up competition; and millennials have little interest in repeat visitation. In this session, you will learn insights from the world's largest travel site that can be applied immediately within your organization. Key take-aways include:

  • The economic growth of travel worldwide
  • Latest look at the travel planning cycle and when best to reach travelers
  • Key trends on traveler consideration and selection of Orlando
  • A view into Orlando's competitor performance
  • New tools for understanding how your business is performing against
  • How traveler UGC is increasing travel around the world

Charlie Ballard leads TripAdvisor's Strategic Insights team, using both external studies and TripAdvisor's billions of monthly traveler research data points to better understand the changing world of travel and leverage this understanding to help TripAdvisor's top clients stay ahead of the rapidly changing global travel and tourism marketplace.

Before Charlie joined TripAdvisor in 2013 he was a part of the MBA Leadership Programme at BT Group with a role as Head of Organisational Health. He started out working with large scale consumer data at Forrester Research in Boston before moving on to lead digital marketing agency measurement and analytics with multiple global clients including General Motors, American Express, AT&T, BT, Fidelity and Comcast. Charlie holds a MBA from ESADE Business School in Barcelona.
