“Your future hasn’t been written yet. No one’s has.
Your future is whatever you make it. So make it a good one,”
– Doc Emmet Brown, “Back To The Future”

To go forwards, we have to go backwards. Well, 2020 certainly sent us back in time. Travel went to zero, we had to claw our way back and fight to stay alive, and now we have to build a new road to the future. How did we make it out alive up to this point? How did we rebuild the road? Where are we now in the story? How do we have to further adapt? What kind of future do we want to write? Let’s make it a good one together.

 

Follow us across four episodes as we connect the dots between the past, the present and the future. Rewind, Reboot, Rebuild, Rewrite.

Episode 1

September 28, 3:00pm–6:30pm (GMT+8)

Rewind: Where Did The Road Go?

Marty McFly: Hey Doc. You’d better back up, we don’t have enough road to get up to 88.
Doc Brown: Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads.

 

Covid-19 blew up our carefully-planned, beautifully-modelled roadmaps. All the roads we knew disappeared. Travel fell off the cliff, our businesses plunged into the abyss, and we scrambled to fix things for our customers. We had to claw our way back. In this episode, we look into the rearview mirror to examine the battles fought in different markets and sectors, the wounds and scars earned by all of us, the things we had to do to survive to this point and the lessons learnt.

Episode 2

September 29, 3:00pm–6:30pm (GMT+8)

Reboot: There’s A Road But It Looks Different

Doc Brown: Things have certainly changed around here. I remember when this was all farmland as far as the eye can see.

 

Across all travel sectors, the ground shifted. Governments controlled our destiny, investors determined our financial fortune or misfortune, businesses adapted, tourism evaporated. Lockdowns forced us into virtual lives. Humanity adapted. Consumers changed. New channels emerged. There’s a new road being built but it looks very different from the one before. What’s changed? What will stick? What will not? How do we reboot? And meet the new, hopeful startups that will take us into the future. Featuring The WiT Startup Pitch 2020.

Episode 3

September 30, 3:00pm–6:30pm (GMT+8)

Rebuild: Hacking Our Way To A New Road

Marty McFly: Wait a minute Doc, are you telling me you built a time machine … out of a DeLorean.
Doc Brown: The way I see it, if you’re going to build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style.

 

Never in the history of travel have so many products been built by so many in so short a time. As the roads collapsed, we went back to our roots of building. In isolation and in remote unison, we built products that fixed weaknesses exposed, products that met customer needs, products that will pave a new road. Plus we had time to do it with some style. In this episode, product takes centerstage. Featuring Best of CV19 Business Pivots and CV19 Product Innovation.

Episode 4

October 1, 2:15pm–8:45pm (GMT+8)

Season Finale
Rewrite: Let’s Make It A Good One

Marty McFly: Wait, you don’t understand. If you don’t play, there’s no music. If there’s no music, they don’t dance. If they don’t dance, they don’t kiss and fall in love and I’m history.

 

Travel is the oxygen of economies. We found that out when economies ground to a halt everywhere. Travel is the oxygen of humanity. If there’s no travel, people don’t meet. If they don’t meet, they don’t kiss and fall in love and we are history. How do we keep travel alive in the new world? What do we want travel to look like? How do we write a new future and make it a good one together? Time to get creative and collaborative in Season Finale.
