Event Overview & Theme: The 2017 Mega Event Asia-Pacific focused on being bold. This year, not only do we need to be bold, but we need to get ahead. Much of our industry is still analogue, but customers, especially Asian customers, want digital to be connected and working across every channel. The question is how to do this? If you want to learn how, then the 2018 Mega Event Asia-Pacific is the must attend event. 

Mega APAC will cover two conference tracks in a single venue: 1) Loyalty & Co-Brand Conference and 2) Ancillary Revenue & Merchandising Conference. Scroll down to see the 2018 conference hot topics and register now while seats remain.


Few seats remain for registration by credit card of $699 USD (airlines, OTA's & travel/hospitality providers) & $1,099 USD (vendors). Note: Registration is $100 USD additional for payment by bank transfer.

Who comes to an Ai Event?

Ai Events focus very much on content. We have industry practitioners as speakers sharing their insights into the key issues of the day. We don’t sell speaking slots, which means our presentations are not sales pitches thus attracting delegates who want to keep up-to-date with innovations and best practices. Most airline, hotel and travel industry delegates are senior decision makers. From SVP, VP and Director level, our delegates are predominately the people doing the job and making purchasing decisions.
