Ways To Speak

Keynote Speakers

CEOs from all sectors of the global travel, tourism and hospitality industry – key influencers and heads of major suppliers or distributors – are invited to engage, debate and define the ever-evolving realities of travel commerce. Participation is by invitation only.

Executive Interviews

A Phocuswright analyst interviews a C-level executive on stage. Participation is by invitation only.

Executive Roundtables

A select few roundtables include media and financial analyst coverage as well as targeted geographic and special interest groups. Participation is by invitation only.


Talkback, a signature component of Phocuswright events, is when audience members are invited to the stage to ask questions. Immediately following certain keynote remarks, industry peers have a special opportunity to square off with a keynote speaker. After listening to a keynote address, Talkbackers take the stage and lead the Q&A segment. A Talkbacker's mission is to ask excellent questions. He or she should dig beneath the polite surface and explore messier truths that are below the surface. For consideration as a Talkbacker, individuals must be 1) registered to attend the event – as a delegate, sponsor or exhibitor; 2) a senior executive from a large travel, tourism or hospitality company or CEO of a mid-to-small firm; and 3) willing to be probing, pithy and provocative.
