The digital transformation of user experiences has changed the ecosystem of the aviation industry. New retail is about sharing, integrating and adding value to customers, and the core factor is digitization.
In the face of digital revolution and diversified customer demands, how will airlines disrupt traditional marketing with digital innovation? What inspirations can be learned from the combination of content and e-commerce? How will O2O strategies connect multi touch points for users? How should airlines respond to the swift changes in consumer demands?
The 2018 Airline Merchandising Conference (2018 AMC) will be held in Shanghai on July 25-26, 2018. More than 650 mid-level or high-level executives in airlines and related industries will attend the event to seek insights and inspirations on "New Digital Merchandising".

This is the first time that I have attended TravelDaily conference after dealing with TravelDaily for a long time. The event themed “Breaking Barrier” has identified the critical bottleneck for airlines. Breaking barriers seems to be the priority for airlines if they are to increase revenue, enhance customer loyalty, gain a bigger slice of the international market, and move ahead with technological innovations, ever-changing ideas and talented personnel. Breaking barriers mean adapting complex organizational structures, operations and procedures to external changes and segments, while lowering the threshold to be more collaborative and inclusive. For airlines, there are too many quality suppliers and buyers, and they need to see them as “partners” rather than “party B”.——Jeremy Zeng, Vice President, LoyaltyChina
