Simon Lenoir, Founding Director of Rezdy discussed ‘Booking Trends and Opportunities for Food Tour Operators’, encouraging today’s fast-growing food tourism industry to reap the benefits of the growing market by embracing tech.
Lenoir said, “We are experiencing another disruption within the food tourism space – more so, the adoption of digital and tech to advance even further. To facilitate this trend, tour operators must take advantage of last-minute, in-destination bookings. This means that it is crucial for food operators to be mobile-optimized, have real-time availability and be accessible to the global inbound market to maintain a competitive stance.”
Rezdy represents over 2,500 customers in 100 countries with over 50,000 products in the Marketplace, making them available to global resellers and processing $1.2B in bookings every year.
