The Beat Live Agenda Is Posted, Early-Bird Rate Expires Wednesday

The Beat is proud to present the agenda for this year's The Beat Live, taking place Sept. 17 to Sept. 19 in New York City.

Register now to lock in our early-bird rate before it expires this Wednesday, July 31.

Our 12th annual event features an on-stage interview with JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes. Farelogix CEO Jim Davidson sits down to discuss a once improbable merger with Sabre. CWT CEO Kurt Ekert braves The Hot Seat to field audience questions. And SAP Concur president Jim Lucier joins us five years to the day after SAP announced its Concur acquisition.

BTN Hall of Famer and DigiTravel Consulting managing partner Susan Lichtenstein brings her wit, wisdom and wisecracks as our master of ceremonies.

This year's agenda features other hallmarks of The Beat Live, including The Buyers' Table and a keynote that was chosen by readers: Festive Road managing partner Paul Tilstone delivers his address, Oh BT! Why Online Booking Tools Need To Wake Up And Smell The Coffee.

Among panel topics, The Beat Live this year explores distribution economics in the NDC era; emerging technology in corporate travel; and the heady world of hotel distribution. See the full agenda and other confirmed speakers here.

We hope to see you in New York City. For more information on The Beat Live and to register at our early-bird rate, check our event website.
