Are Virtual Worlds For Real This Time?
WIT-Web In Travel is Asia's leading travel distribution, marketing and technology conference. 2009 is the fifth year the conference will be run. It was started by journalist Yeoh Siew Hoon.
WIT is different to traditional conferences in terms of content, delivery and attitude. The content is deep, rich and meaningful. The delivery is varied, diverse and impactful. The conference has an attitude that challenges speakers to be at their best - no sales speeches and platitudes, but provoking and thinking - and delegates to question, discuss, debate and challenge. With each WIT, the conversation gets better and the discussion more interactive.
In 2007, WIT introduced questions by SMS and allowed audience voting by SMS as well for best debators, best speakers and best pitches. In 2009, we take our presence further. We are using Web 2.0 technology to reach out to an ever widening network of colleagues with similar passion, engaging them through Facebook, Twitter, blogs, newsletters and micro events, WIT*e - Inspiration & Mentoring networking forums, leading up to the main conference to be held on the 20 -23 October, 2009 at Suntec City in Singapore.
WIT won the Most Innovative Marketing Initiative in the 2008 Singapore Business Events Awards organised by the Singapore Tourism Board.
