The airline industry is becoming more data-driven and that is in response to a world with multi-players, multi-source channels, where the customers have the power of choice and demand for transparency of their choices. In a parallel track to satisfying customer demands, the industry is always looking for ways to optimize its processes by seeking new challenges and adopting innovative technologies such as E-Payments, providing airlines with increased transparency and control in the collection of their sales and Blockchain, which will redefine the relationship between multiple players in the industry. On the other hand, and in the era of technology, cybersecurity has become an elevated risk that is among the most pressing issues affecting businesses.

The Business Technology Forum will address the latest trends in technology impacting the airline industry, and will tackle issues related to:

- The Potential of Blockchain Technology
- Big Data Customer Relationship Management
- Retail Distribution
- Mobile as a Multiplier for Distribution
- Managing Disruptions and its Impact on Airline’s Operations
- Cybersecurity: Mitigating the threat, building cyber resilience
- E-Payment
