Agenda & Speakers

Customer Loyalty in Travel and Entertainment

Perhaps no industries are undergoing more change in customer loyalty than travel & entertainment. Thanks to increasingly accessible in-home experiences, as well as the contrasting trend for Millennials to value experiences over tangible goods, marketers can feel overwhelmed when looking for what exactly goes into the “perfect experience.”

In this travel & entertainment panel, we bring together executives from top brands in the space and examine their thoughts, ideas, and predictions for topics like customer engagement, loyalty channels, new technology, and the raising expectations from customers across the vertical.

Consumers are faced with more options for entertainment than ever before, and this panel will be a crucial resource in determining just what may be the X-factor that sets your brand apart from the rest.

Over the last 10 years attendance at Mia has doubled, and Mia’s new “pay-what-you-can” experience-centered membership strategy has increased member conversion (at a museum with free admission) from 3% to 11%, with an average gift of $98 and a member NPS of 89.
