What a year it has been, with so many advances in technology, rapid change in mobile, exciting developments for wearables and poignant events for the travel industry. 2014 saw some incredible developments, twitter records were smashed during the 2014 World Cup, rapid change in the mobile payment industry, with Asian consumers driving change at an astonishing pace and the prominence of mobile only social networks such as WeChat and Snapchat.
It has also been a year of tragedy for the aviation industry, with the loss of three Malaysian aircraft just months apart. Digital communities showed an outpouring of both shared grief and technical ingenuity in the search for answers, yet sadly with no success.
2014 has been a busy year for the Digital Tourism Think Tank. Our #OnTheRoad tour has been an overwhelming success, taking us to far flung places such as South Africa and the United Arab Emirates. We have been overwhelmed by the support of the hundreds of destinations who follow us around the world, our brilliant speakers and experts who are driven by their passion for the industry and our amazing sponsors and partners who have supported us every step of the way.
To say thank you for coming with us on such an amazing journey, we've prepared a little video highlighting the most notable developments that have impacted our industry over the past 12 months.
Thank you for your support, the #DTTT team look forward to seeing you in 2015!
