With the Asian travel market forecasted to grow to $155 billion in 2017 and with half of that purchased online, the challenges facing the region's travel providers are getting more complex. Additionally, as penetration of smartphones rapidly outstrips other global regions, balancing a good customer experience with fraud prevention has become critical - and doing so in every channel cost effectively is now a key business objective. In the face of this fast-changing travel industry landscape in Asia-Pacific, this year's conference theme is Asia's Digital Payments Revolution. This conference, being held in the Hilton Kuala Lumpur Hotel, will examine how digital innovation can be embraced to deliver for travellers, while also driving down payment costs for airlines and travel companies.
