Blacklane’s CEO Jens Wohltorf was in Singapore a couple of weeks ago to meet with our Asia-Pacific team. On the agenda: presenting our vision of mobility to key industry players, journalists and travel enthusiasts.
With Blacklane’s expansion into the Asia-Pacific region fully underway, we realize the importance of making our presence known on the ground. The plan for the week was attending Web In Travel and ITB Asia in Singapore. Both events are important annual highlights in the travel industry.
Blacklane was alongside other key players in the German travel industry, such as Lufthansa, Düsseldorf Airport, Visit Berlin and the Maritim Hotels. Blacklane attended the exclusive “Travel Destination Germany” kick-off event for ITB Asia 2016 prior to the travel exhibition, follow-up talks and introductions. ITB Asia, an offspring of ITB Berlin, offers a unique and important opportunity for international travel and mobility companies, with a special focus on Asia, to seek new cooperations and strike new partnership deals.
The industry aims to provide a seamless experience to the customer, which means it’s all about cooperation across business models, continents and cultural boundaries. Jens took part in a panel discussion at Web In Travel that focused on the cooperation between airlines and ground transportation — key factors to making a travel experience truly seamless and comfortable across water, ground and air.
