Our Mission

To nurture the growing demand of knowledge sharing by providing a transparent media platform connecting hotel and travel professionals

techtalk.travel

Representing the change needed by the fragmented hotel and travel technology landscape, techtalk.travel is a dynamic community of hospitality innovators ranging from hoteliers and hotel owners to industry students and tech providers.

With the power of idea collaboration and shared knowledge with key stakeholders, game-changers and industry influencers we aim to be the go-to resource for neutral hospitality technology content.

Additionally the platform allows technology providers to educate about their services promoting sales, marketing, distribution and to build loyalty through the techtalk.travel community.
