We are proud to present the agenda for The Beat Live, taking place at the Dallas-area Omni Frisco Hotel Oct. 2 to 4.
Our 10th annual event will feature a keynote address from Sabre CEO Sean Menke, an onstage interview with American Airlines CEO Doug Parker and a live Q&A session with American Express Global Business Travel CEO Doug Anderson.
The event also will feature an address from Executive Travel CEO Steve Glenn, who won our annual keynote pitch contest.
Among panel topics, The Beat Live will explore the future of airline distribution with executives from major U.S. carriers; emerging travel technologies with startup funders and advisors; and the International Air Transport Association's New Distribution Capability initiative from the perspective of travel management company execs.
For The Buyers' Table, our moderator, TheAdvisory Board VP of information systems Steven Mandelbaum, will sit down with fellow corporate travel managers to tackle hot topics.
Another crowd favorite, Deem chief commercial officer Tony D'Astolfo will once again lead The Views panel with runners-up from our keynote vote.
Last but certainly not least, United Airlines SVP of worldwide sales Dave Hilfman will lead the proceedings as the best master of ceremonies in the business.
Don't forget to register for The Beat Live before our early-bird rate expires on Sept. 8.
