Southwest's Kevin Krone To Take The Hot Seat At The Beat Live

Southwest Airlines has been on quite a journey, evolving from a plucky intra-Texas airline to the domestic market's largest operator. Is it still a maverick? Vice president and chief marketing officer Kevin Krone will hear that question and many others__from The Beat's writers, readers and conference attendees__as he sits in the Hot Seat at The Beat Live. He should have many of the answers. Krone started with Southwest in 1992 and now is responsible for the airline's marketing strategies, sales, travel agency partnerships, distribution and loyalty program, among other areas.

Join us in New Orleans at The Beat Live, October 6-8, to ask Krone your own questions. He's part of a speaker roster that features Carlson Wagonlit Travel president and CEO Doug Anderson and Travelport CEO Gordon Wilson. The agenda also includes thought-provoking panel discussions on key issues, content to be generated by you, the readers, and the corporate travel technology sector's best networking.
