Airbnb and Trip.com are two huge success stories to emerge from the digital transformation of the travel industry. And while consumer behaviour evolves, certain things remain constant, including the perennial attractiveness of Hong Kong and Japan as world-class tourist destinations.

Experts from the Japan National Tourism Organisation(JNTO) Hong Kong Office, Hong Kong Tourism Board, Airbnb and Trip.com will share their valuable insights on using technology to attract visitors and understand their behaviour at our Digital Travel Forum.
