Daniel Coleman, Founder and CEO, Future Travel Experience (FTE) shared a look at what FTE was up to at CES 2024 Vegas last week, also providing an overview of the company’s plans for the year ahead.

“Working closely with our expanded Advisory Boards, FTE is passionate about playing the role of conduit to accelerate progress, and drive more collaboration and sharing across the industry,” said Coleman. “I am proud to say that our current portfolio of In-Person & Digital Events, Communities (Baggage Innovation Working Group; Digital, Innovation & Startup Hub & World Airport Retailing Working Group), Proof of Concepts, Awards, Competitions, Think Tanks & Content is doing our best work yet in achieving our core mission at this critical time for our sector.”

Coleman also said that he believes what happens over the next five years will be indicative of what the next three decades will look like for the industry.

This year, Future Travel Experience is increasing its offerings of high-level content and gatherings to support the industry. Creating a strong foundation that allows companies to elevate the passenger experience and increase revenue remains a priority in 2024.

FTE will host meetups in Las Vegas, Tampa, Frankfurt, Pittsburgh, Dublin, Los Angeles and Singapore this year. These meetups are an opportunity for industry members to build relationships and trust with one another, allowing for deeper exploration of innovative technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics & Internet of Things (IoT), explore use cases and more.

Coleman calls FTE’s in-person events the “jewel in our crown”, gathering the most progressive minds in the industry to conference, exhibit and share ideas.
