Talkback – a signature feature of Phocuswright events – provides insights (and more!) after a keynote presentation. Talkbackers square off with a keynote speaker for a Q&A session, asking tough questions that dig deeper than what was covered in the presentation.

Talkbacker requirements

  • Registered to attend the event as a delegate, sponsor or exhibitor
  • A senior executive from a large travel, tourism or hospitality company, or the CEO of a mid-to-small firm
  • Must be willing to ask probing and provocative questions
