Thank you for attending our first Controlling Your Offer Symposium, and thanks to our fabulous guest speakers and airline presenters for sharing your insights. It was a jam-packed day of learning what it truly means to be the single source of truth and how to control your offer.

In today’s world of digital commerce and personalization, the airline’s biggest asset is its offer. The ability to create, optimize and deliver offers dynamically in real time – as the “single source of truth” for all channels – is the new airline oxygen! The impact of NDC, new off-PSS offer engines, and predictive revenue management using big data/AI has ushered in a new wave of change and opportunity in the airline industry. Are you ready?

Farelogix is hosting the industry’s first event dedicated to technology for airline-controlled offers. This invite-only Controlling Your Offer Symposium is custom-tailored for airline IT, revenue management and e-commerce executives seeking to explore strategies and new technologies to dynamically manage all aspects of airline offer, from pricing and merchandising to optimized availability and schedule-building.

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from industry and product experts, hear real-life case studies, and see live demonstrations that take NDC, dynamic pricing, revenue management and merchandising to the next level!
