DataArt, a high-end software development company headquartered in New York with R&D centers in Eastern Europe, will host an executive panel on emerging mobile technology strategies for the travel industry on October 15 from 16.00 to 18.30 in central London. The panel is the first in a planned series of such events to be hosted by DataArt, and will feature candid discussion between leading travel and mobile industry leaders, including:
• Graham Leslie, president, IXeo and VisitAfrica.com, and former CEO of Serena Hotels and SVP of Kempinski Hotels.

The evening’s session will be moderated by Graham McKenzie from TravelMole, who will lead the discussion around how mobile technologies are reshaping the way consumers plan, book and consume travel services. The discussion will further explore how the increasing consumer demand for such mobile applications is causing travel companies to revolutionize existing global IT operations strategies to make their services more mobile-friendly.
“As mobile technologies continue to grow at a tremendous pace, the travel industry is quickly proving to be a hot point for showcasing just how ubiquitous and versatile mobile apps are becoming,” said Marina Kolesnik, head of travel and hospitality practice at DataArt. “However, with such ubiquity, complexity and dynamism comes real challenges about how to effectively incorporate mobile technology into new IT operations plans, and make accessing such services easier for customers. With this panel, attendees will get to hear from both sides of the equation about how this evolution is taking shape and the potential it carries.”
