All rights reserved. 1980s Content DigitalizationThe emergence of online booking systems for airlines and hotels via EAASY Sabre saw the first integration between traditional mediums and the Internet. Online travel agents sprang up. The likes of Travelweb, Expedia, Travelocity and Priceline began to build their inventories through partnerships with airlines and hotels. Verticals in the travel sector developed – reviews (Tripadvisor), fare aggregators (Kayak), marketplace (Airbnb), online travel solutions (Travelport) - were formed to better support travel-related business and consumers. The first batch of travel Internet companies in China began to take off. Demand for Content 1990s 2000s Content Differentiation 50 Years of Evolution in Travel Industry

Sub-domains in this sector have emerged: pre-trip, midway and post-trip. Pre-trip involves information discovery served by the companies such as Expedia, Ctrip, Tripadvisor and Airbnb. Midway entails the support to travellers, such as HotelQuickly that offers spontaneity and exclusive access, when they have arrived in destinations. Post-trip involves the sharing of experiences and the comparison of itineraries. We foresee the integration of deep tech in this sector. Areas of this integration include virtual reality travel through VR/AR headsets. Other applications include the refinement of travel searches and chatbots through AI and analytics.
