WeTravel recently launched registration for its first set of on-going, lunch-time community gathering and travel technology learning sessions, L(a)unch-N-Learns, to encourage better collaboration on shared interest topics in the multi-day travel industry.
A shake on the traditional internal employee engagement Lunch-N-Learn, the L(a)unch-N-Learns will mimic the feel of gathering around a virtual table, to discuss a travel-specific educational component, with a group of like-minded travel professionals The first discussion topics for the L(a)unch-N-Learns will explore two of the biggest opportunities for travel businesses this year: The dynamics of understanding inventory capacity, as travel businesses manage cross-region, local suppliers; and offering local payment options to your current–and prospective–traveller clientele.
“In our DNA, even implied in our business’s name, WeTravel exists as a community ‘We’ with a shared interest for ‘Travel’. With thousands of businesses in all global markets using our platform to support their businesses, we want to stretch our support beyond our technology and into hosting table discussions on pressing industry questions that impact growth and bottom-line,” said Morgan Mostrom, WeTravel’s community manager. “Our newly created L(a)unch-N-Learns are flipping the standard Lunch-N-Learn around, instead of internal learning sessions they’re external gatherings, over the lunch period, to bring together community to discuss–and learn from, together–topical industry shifts.”
This month’s L(a)unch-N-Learns will include:
