Fabrizio has a Philosophy degree from Federico II and a Master in Philosophy and Politics obtained at La Sorbonne University, and before joining Tripadvisor worked as a strategic consultant for a global consulting and market research firm.

His topic will be concentrated on next elements:
· Tripadvisor’s data on consumer sentiment (what people think of how travel will change after the pandemic, how people will want to travel, what they consider will be the “new normal” after the pandemic, what are the aspects they’re looking for when selecting a destination and booking a hotel) – all these data come from surveys we run regularly in some of our key markets globally
· Tripadvisor’s data on traffic (what destinations travellers are looking for, from where we’re seeing spikes in traffic, what type of accommodations travellers are looking for, what range of price, etc.) – all these data are user traffic data on our platform
· What hotel owners can do to adapt their business to the new travel landscape that these data are suggesting us (i.e. be more eco-friendly, propose discounts, how to market themselves as safe to go, how to create a digital strategy that can make them successful, etc.)

SPEED NETWORKING

Business speed networking allows you to increase the efficiency of any business event at times. Minimum of time - maximum of useful and new contacts!

This year, this format will again become a part of the International Hospitality Conference 2020. And in just an hour you will be able to get acquainted with the maximum number of participants at the event and determine with whom you would like to continue business communication during the conference, and with whom - make an appointment later. 

How it works?

100 - 150 participants within an hour will be able to briefly tell about themselves and their business to each other. We ask participants to come up with a short 60-second presentation, in which they will briefly tell about themselves and their activities. And also take themselves a sufficient number of business cards.

Benefits of participation:

- The main goal of Business speed networking is to meet as many people as possible in the shortest possible time.
- a short acquaintance can help decide with whom you could continue business communication during the conference or make an appointment later.
- increases the efficiency of your time spent at the conference.
- people are more open to cooperation with those whom they previously met in a welcoming atmosphere.
- removes the awkwardness of the first contact, a simple and easy way to form new business acquaintances.
