PPI Group Partners with LAB.Ventures and the Future of Travel Summit

The lineup of speakers and panel discussions include executives from JetBlue Ventures, Boeing Ventures, Hilton, Marriott, Ritz Carlton Yacht, HitlistApp Hertz, Amadeus, TNOOZ, and many more.
One of the event's main highlights is a Startup Pitch Competition with established tech-travel startups. Winners of the competition will be given the opportunity to present their travel technology on stage at Seatrade in March, the cruise industry's leading trade show.
"With the evolution of travel, PPI Group prides itself on being at the forefront of travel technology and digital marketing," said Bill Panoff, president and CEO. "The LAB Miami is a creative campus for entrepreneurs and innovators, which is why PPI Group is thrilled to join the Future of Travel Summit and help to stimulate that source of growth."
"When we started LAB Ventures our idea was always to try to build a bridge between corporations looking for external sources of innovation and startups looking for customers. This event brings together in one place some of the most innovative TravelTech Startups with the world's leading travel brands," said The LAB's Tigre Wenrich.
