About WiT Seoul 2019
WiT Seoul 2019 will take a step "Through the Looking Glass" to uncover inspirational and new ideas in travel from across the world and in APAC. 

In its third edition, WiT Seoul will focus on both the challenges and opportunities for growth in a rapidly developing travel market, and piece together how new technologies are being built to address evolving consumer needs and wants. It will also look beyond the borders of travel, to take lessons and to see things in a different light.

Why attend

Change is coming at us from so many different directions. Emerging markets, new customers, new behaviours. New tech – AI, machine learning, blockchain – are promising to transform every industry. Fintech is targeting consumers at the point where it matters most – their pockets. On-demand services are changing our expectations in how we consume, live, work and play.

Marketplaces do retail better – compare buying on Amazon versus an airline website. Facebook and Google are streaks ahead in AI and machine learning. Spotify has taken personalisation to a new level, it even discovers new music for you. Netflix knows what you should be watching before you do.

It is clear no industry can afford to operate in silos anymore. Lines have blurred, walls have come down. It is vital we look past our industry to explore and discover other verticals – whether in tech, media, retail, banking – and take lessons from their experiences.

Our theme

When Alice stepped "Through the Looking Glass", she did it boldly. She asked questions of everyone she met, she had a playful spirit, she accepted everyone as they were, with all their quirks and eccentricities. Yet, she never lost sight of her identity and who she was.

Curiosity, Courage, Experimentation, Acceptance and Character. These are the values we should hold on to when we set off on any journey to a new destination.

This year, we encourage you to embrace these five values as we take the journey "Through the Looking Glass" together. Let's explore what is out there that we can learn from, see things in a different light, so that together we can uncover a world of possibilities on the other side.
