Rome2rio To Present at Berlin’s ITB Next Month

Published February 13, 2014

Rome2rio CEO Rod Cuthbert is making one of the keynote presentations at the upcoming ITB / PhoCusWright Conference, to be held in Berlin on March 5th. Titled “Multi-Modal Travel Search Has Arrived… Now What?” the presentation will offer a wide-ranging overview of the marketplace, including the key players in the space and the various challenges they face in promoting industry-wide adoption of multi-modal search.

Among the sites featured in Rod’s analysis will be Waymate, GoEuro, FromAtoB, Routerank, Wanderio and SNCF’s Mytripset. Rod will examine their strategies, areas of focus and the unique attributes of each of the sites.

He’ll also be talking about the relative complexity of multi-modal search vs. the prevailing “air-only” search model, and discuss why it’s understandable that multi-modal search solutions have taken so long to emerge. Finally, he’ll talk about the key hurdles the industry needs to overcome before widespread adoption is achieved.

The PhoCusWright Conference is held in Hall 7.1c of the Berlin Exhibition Grounds, starting at 10:30am. Last year’s ITB Berlin Convention had more than 12,000 participants, and is regarded as the most important travel trade show in Europe.

  • Hi, Is there a digital copy of the presentation that Rod did at ITB? As a new whitelabel partner I am interested in what the future of multi-modal search is and how I can better help OtterTraveler position itself as a dominant provider and partner.
