Usual Suspects: The Beat Live 2010

Outspoken, witty and very smart, The Beat Live's usual suspects are back. Airline industry experts Dave Hilfman of Continental Airlines and Holly Hegeman of PlaneBusiness Banter will return to The Beat Live as master of ceremonies and lunch speaker, respectively. Highly rated by attendees to our first two editions of The Beat Live, these instigators are joined in kind by Rearden Commerce's Tony D'Astolfo, whose impersonation last year of John McLaughlin from ABC's The McLaughlin Group was as hilarious as his panel discussion was educational.

Register to attend here:

D'Astolfo will again moderate our session known as The Views, in which multiple participants are tasked with presenting and debating positions on industry issues. Hilfman returns for what may be the industry's best recurring emcee performance, while "outspoken" is an understatement for airline critic Hegeman, whose unabashed bashing and praising is the ideal lunch accompaniment.

These top performers will band together with AA managing director of distribution and merchandising strategy Bridget Blaise-Shamai, Hogg Robinson chief executive David Radcliffe, Travelport GDS CEO Gordon Wilson and other experts for what we aim to make the best yet installation of The Beat Live.

Register today for our early-bird rate. The Beat Live will take place at the W Chicago City Center. [more]
