ABOUT THEME

THE HUMAN REVOLUTION

Calling all humans.

 

The spirit of revolution, of things changing, of an old order passing, is in the air.

 

It’s time for humans working in travel to unleash their superpowers to be more personal, authentic and imaginative in the age of AI, to earn and keep customer trust, and to learn from the age of scarcity to do more with less. We need to push technology rather than let it push us, and to make soulful technology that fuses the best of human and machine capabilities.

 

Just as the technological revolution has begun, it’s time for a human revolution that emphasizes the unique qualities of humanity, such as creativity, empathy, and diverse views, to direct technology for the benefit of all involved in the travel industry.

 

It’s time for humans to harness the power of technology for the greater good of travel.

ABOUT WiT JAPAN & NORTH ASIA

WiT Japan & North Asia is the Tokyo-based edition of the Web in Travel (WiT) conference first launched in Singapore in 2005.

 

It was launched in Tokyo with co-founders, Kei Shibata and Aya Aso, in 2012 to act as a bridge between Japan & North Asia and the rest of the world to unearth and share the latest innovations and trends happening in travel technology, distribution and marketing in one of the world’s most dynamic and biggest travel markets.

 

Its objective is to showcase the dynamism and diversity of the Japanese & North Asia travel startup ecosystem, as well as the trends, issues and opportunities within the online travel market. For global travel brands, it will be an opportunity to learn about an exciting growth region as well as form relationships and build partnerships for the future.

 

For travel players based in Japan and North Asia, it will be an opportunity to take lessons from the rest of the world and build relationships for global outreach.

 

WiT Japan & North Asia 2024 will comprise two days of sessions aimed at empowering startups and nurturing the startup ecosystem, and serving as a platform for thought leaders to share insights and lessons and unearth opportunities for the future.

As part of the Phocuswright family, and Northstar Travel Group, we also have taken our events to Europe and the US.
