Looking into our crystal ball, we see sure things and uncertain prospects based on a couple of our stories today. Like Marriott and Hilton, AccorHotels is working on its version of the connected room. So it's a safe bet there will be a lot more gadgetry in your hotel room in years to come.
In the jury-is-still-out category, Air New Zealand, Lufthansa and TUI are beginning to dabble with blockchain as the great equalizer in travel distribution. Kudos to them for getting on board early in the experimentation. Blockchain's potential could range from transforming the travel industry pecking order to being subverted or ending up being a gigantic yawn. Rest assured that we'll be charting the blockchain journey with everything we can throw at it.
