FTE launches industry-wide crowdsourcing effort as part of Think Tank
Future Travel Experience (FTE) has announced the launch of an industry-wide crowdsourcing effort as part of the FTE APEX Business Model Transformation Think Tank. The key recommendations of the Think Tank were unveiled during the December Virtual Expo, and the crowdsourcing effort invites people to share ideas on how to make the recommendations a reality.
The Think Tank explored how airlines, airports and their partners can embrace new approaches and collaborate more closely to solve long-running industry challenges and frustrations that have been heightened by the pandemic. Reducing cost bases, improving processes, and creating new revenue-generating opportunities throughout the end-to-end travel experience were among the core focus areas, including redefining the way passenger purchase and consume food and beverage, and providing passengers with a reliable and seamless end-to-end baggage experience.
The crowdsourcing effort invites industry stakeholders from around the world to get involved and provide suggestions on how to support these initiatives. Suggestions can be submitted online now, and will be presented at FTE APEX Virtual Expo 2021, running May 25 to 26. A selection of entrants will be invited to join the next Think Tank conference call.
