This March, we showcased Yapta’s dynamic price assurance technology and performance analytics at SAP Concur Fusion in San Diego. Time flies when you’re participating in a great event. Yapta has been exhibiting at Fusion every year since 2013. Our team has grown, our success has skyrocketed, and we continue to foster valuable relationships at this industry-leading event.
This year’s show began with a keynote address by Concur’s President, Mike Eberhard. He shared their vision for the future, which aligns with many of Yapta’s strengths: data, security, automation and machine learning. Concur’s Chief Product Officer, Tim MacDonald, highlighted their plans to support a positive experience throughout the travel lifecycle. This also aligns perfectly with the benefits of Yapta’s offerings. Read more in our whitepaper, “5 Ways to Save Throughout the Travel Lifecycle.”
These are exciting times in the travel industry. Fusion attendees learned that corporate travel is poised to experience remarkable growth. Projected to be at $1.3 trillion this year, corporate travel is expected to grow to $1.7 trillion by 2022.
Our exhibit was a great success, enabling us to meet with many of our customers, partners and colleagues. We’re proud that our booth was packed within the first five minutes of opening. Throughout the event, we demonstrated Yapta’s newest offering, TravelAI. A game-changing performance analytics tool, TravelAI delivers complete point-of-sale data and analytics to optimize supplier negotiations and policy compliance. Learn more about TravelAI.
But it wasn’t all work! We proudly co-sponsored the “Oasis” reception at the Kimpton Palomar rooftop. With hundreds of attendees, it was a fantastic evening of delicious food, drinks and socializing. Also co-sponsoring the reception were Direct Travel, Rocketrip and The Parking Spot. It was enhanced by our small fleet of pedicabs that shuttled Oasis attendees to and from the reception.
We’re going to be the road again, exhibiting at SAP Concur Fusion in London, June 18-19. This is the first time the event is being held in EMEA, and will bring together an active community of customers, partners and experts for an immersive educational and networking experience. We hope to see you there! If you’re attending and would like to meet, send us an email.
