While presenting at the Travel Technology Europe show in London this week, our CEO Aaron Gowell, who was recently named one of the top 25 most influential executives in the travel industry, had a chance to sit down with Lee Hayhurst from Travolution to talk about what we are doing here at SilverRail.
The result is a great article, which gives a great overview of what we are trying to achieve. Aaron used one of age old analogies to good effect:
“Many leisure companies are focused on selling hotels, but if you do not have the transport piece to get someone to a hotel you lose the reason why someone would come to your site.
“It used to be that air was the milk at the back of the store but now it is rail that is the milk at the back of the store – 2012 is going to be a big year for rail.”
Always good to get coverage on these leading travel industry sites. Thanks Travolution!
