PhoCusWright Conference 2008 – Day 1 in Hollywood

Day One of the 2008 PhoCusWright 2008 Conference (my first PhoCusWright Conference) and the Travel Innovation Summit has begun.

Presentations from Emerging Travel software companies that are creating Web 2.0 travel planning solutions including rezgo.com, Travelbeen.com, Tripit.com, TripJane.com (one of my favourites already – love the name and it is the first travel agency inside Facebook offering booking capability and search as well as the word of mouth recommendations), Tripit.com (I actually planned this trip using Tripit.com – it combined all of my travel reservation confirmations and served back an itinerary to my Outlook and Blackberry).  Looks like many solutions focussed around Social Media applications. 


PhoCusWright has created a real time voting platform that will judge and rank these innovators with the winners to present at the Centre Stage event in front of 900 plus Travel industry leaders on Tuesday. 

I am meeting with some fellow bloggers now in preparation for the Bloggers Summit tomorrow.  I will be a good active Blogger this week so stay tuned to updates from Hollywood!
