The glorious growth for China’s travel industry for nearly two decades has left a multitude of underlying problems unaddressed. User traffic growth that fueled the rapid development of the industry has stalled, and the travel space has entered a critical stage of transformation. Various segments are slowing down and many companies are clamoring to find new growth engines.
The COVID-19 coronavirus has intensified the pressure of economic downturn. The industry, forced to face accelerated reshuffles, must rethink: Who are the core users? What are their core demands? It's time to reset in 2020, to change our perception, thinking and value. Join the 2020 TravelDaily Conference, rescheduled to September 28-29 in Shanghai, to explore topics most relevant to travel companies: What long-term opportunities are there for the industry after regrouping? How to modify product structure, operation and marketing strategies to cater to segmented markets and personalized demands? How to improve user experience with fine-tuned operation? How to plan and execute corporate digitalization to become more resilient? How to establish a win-win value proposition as travelers’ demands are increasingly diversified and the industry chain is working closer together?

In an era of great transformation, we are pleased to discuss the future of “new tourism” with our friends and make a contribution to the reform of the tourism industry. We want to thank TravelDaily for providing us with a stage to share ideas, and also for its truly professional performance.

The TravelDaily team is respected for the great arrangements of its conferences. As a fellow participant in the event said, we are lucky to stay in the travel industry for three reasons: the era, the China market, and the TravelDaily team!
CEO, SSAW Boutique Hotel
Ever since I got to know this platform, TravelDaily has always impressed me with its growing influence on the travel industry.
We’ve attended the TravelDaily Conference for the past five years. We appreciate that the organizer ensures open and to-the-point sharing of insights by the speakers, rather than sales pitches. There is a saying that is very apt for good conferences: “The weak undermine each other and fail together, while the strong reinforce each other and win together.”
—— Songzhi Wang, President, Paco Hotel Group
I have attended the annual TravelDaily Conference four times since I started my own company five years ago. Each time I gained something new, and the enthusiasm of the TravelDaily team and their focus on details remained constant. This marks TravelDaily Conference as the most important event in the tourism industry.
—— Tarry Wang, Co-founder & COO, Xiaozhu.com
TravelDaily has provided an important platform and network to propel and improve the vision, landscape, innovations, capital and entrepreneurship in the entire China travel industry. It’s a platform for promoting communication between domestic and international markets. The enthusiasm, hard work and contributions of the organizing team are very impressive! I appreciate their work and look forward to witnessing the continuous expansion of China’s travel sector together.

I missed the opening sessions on Day 1 of the TravelDaily Conference because of traffic, but stayed till the end of the event and witnessed the TravelDaily team closing the event and taking a photo together. I have been attending the TravelDaily events countless times. I dare say TravelDaily is the No. 1 platform for connecting airline and travel businesses in China! I look forward to seeing the TravelDaily team help the industry grow stronger and better with more incisive topics and honest opinions.

Taking three days off busy schedules for the event is not easy for corporate leaders but it is necessary to stay up-to-date while we are charging ahead.

We appreciate TravelDaily’s efforts in bringing us an excellent industry conference and a platform for communication!
