The Famous Ai Events Lions’ Den:  Innovative product pitches

Innovation is at the heart of Airline and Travel Payments & Fraud.  Without new products and approaches being able to deliver for customers our industry will see not only costs rise but the system just clog up.  Delegates tell us that this is one of their favourite sessions – they know it is a pure sales pitch and not a presentation.  But the Lions ask difficult questions and with just 5 minutes to convince them that their product is a great solution for the industry the pressure is on!

Matthew Donaldson, Digital Sales Manager APAC, Lufthansa
Maarten Rooijers, Airline Payment and Forex Specialist, Founder of Payments Taking Off
Paul Martin, VP Business Development, Aeroprime
