GENEVA, Switzerland – The International Air Transport Association (IATA) announced that the theme for the 2015 World Passenger Symposium (WPS) will be “Innovating Better, Together”. With IATA’s New Distribution Capability (NDC) standard moving into the implementation phase and the Fast Travel program now reaching some 24.4% of global travelers, WPS will catalyze further progress by focusing discussions on collaborative efforts to drive these and other distribution and customer experience transformations.

The event, taking place in Hamburg, Germany, 20-22 October is expected to attract more than 700 high-level delegates from across the industry’s value chain, including airlines, global distribution systems and travel technology providers, airports and travel management companies.

WPS 2015 provides a unique opportunity for stakeholders in the air travel value chain to examine challenges to delivering a superior passenger experience while agreeing a vision for tomorrow’s service ideals,” said Tony Tyler, IATA’s Director General and CEO, who will deliver the keynote address at WPS.
