Con­sumers have high expec­ta­tions when trav­el­ing, crav­ing a mix of authen­tic­i­ty and access. Trav­el and hos­pi­tal­i­ty brands today have the chal­lenge of cul­ti­vat­ing the best expe­ri­ence pos­si­ble through­out each point of a traveller’s jour­ney: from book­ing a hotel room to enjoy­ing a cruise’s ameni­ties onboard to step­ping onto a flight.

The tra­di­tion­al way that con­sumers have inter­act­ed with trav­el brands has been rede­fined; brands are sell­ing mem­o­ries, not just a flight or hotel, and must embrace a focus on the cus­tomer jour­ney to stay rel­e­vant.

Adobe has a strong lega­cy with the trav­el and hos­pi­tal­i­ty world; 9 of 10 of the world’s biggest hotel chains and 7 of the 10 largest air­lines lever­age Adobe Expe­ri­ence Cloud to help craft their cus­tomer expe­ri­ences. This includes South­west Air­lines, MGM Resorts Inter­na­tion­al, Princess Cruis­es, G6 Hos­pi­tal­i­ty, as well as, who is keynot­ing at Adobe Sym­po­sium.

These capa­bil­i­ties include:
