Brexit and technology on agenda at Phocuswright Europe

"Empires on the Edge" is the theme of Phocuswright Europe, which this year is presenting a program that explores the rise, fall and stall of empires of any kind.  

The impact of Brexit on economies and travel-related corporations across the EU-British divide will be examined. Two tourism leaders, one from each side of the Channel, will come together onstage to explore what happens after a community with a shared dream suddenly must cope with what could become a shared nightmare.

The CEOs of eDream Odigeo (Europe's largest OTA), TravelPirates (the continent's largest deal site) and Airbnb's managing director of Europe will each take center stage. Learn how they hope to take advantage of opportunities given only to the big, while fending off challenges from competitors of every size, both known and unknown.

The conference will be held in Amsterdam on May 15 and 16. Friday, Feb. 15 is the final day to register before the price rises by 500 euros to 1,899.

Phocuswright is owned by Travel Weekly's parent company, Northstar Travel Group.
