I don't know why my name is criminal law I'm the chief full stop be my guests. Prior to rule. Launching -- be my guest actor in Singapore I used to -- -- research will focus right. And -- monitor in. In Europe. At a high school -- strategy air travel -- for -- C distribution. So -- where fans Serb headquarter itself. You my guests. And so this could be my guesses. Online travel agency that very much focus on that were set activities sector so with a larger segment though off to a ten activities. In Asia where currently in the suffer much more back. During this period with managed to get up to ready. Slightly over 10000 listings just in the -- fifteen -- sold -- -- global still kind of like them Steve Fossett's opens a line. So not. Why are we going to to a -- activities spaces basically it -- -- 1122 -- -- what's the -- -- gonna look accommodation local states. But not a two bit locker combination -- -- -- You actually have to ever remotely -- Batman. -- when it comes to at all hours activities phase there is no need to actually have a physical assets or break. And if you look at the travel distribution landscape. Airlines over -- food chain hotels car adults cruellest bar pretty much relevance of the death. -- -- -- -- -- coming into the world last year to -- twelve. And so what slack it's actually a final frontier -- doctor Trevor this brochure. It's -- -- -- activities over the past day or so worth at 11 o'clock airlines a lot about off. Puts us back not really so much about to a set activities so this as well I'm going to talk about today. But a bit better how soon will not -- -- long until travel distribution. So basically Intelsat what we're trying to should achieve well I -- really accommodation. As a leading generator. For tourist activities. I believe does that give we had just to a certain activities and it's -- -- -- not stand people just can't get it easily. Whereas if you have a combination actually generate a people got into the search engines bring traffic to the site. And then -- bars that would do is when we -- comedy show we pushed the to a selectivity is the vice -- you can just I think class. Would push the nomination to. As a partner using salt layer social media is. Should you so let's say their physical market so let's YouTube further. Well aren't you -- your password into Q it's always an I don't know recommended to a skydive being are Pike River water rafting -- So my family oriented stuff let's if you could -- -- friends picture their worst just denied a be challenge really Nancy in Malaysia. We recommend -- the kinds of activities you can actually do all -- that destination in the kind of accommodations available by pushing relevant content. To the traveller. And so we -- -- is Richard Lehman you said the WB MC DC strategy. Nobody wanted to be the first to deliver a listing on the website so what we do this literally got out of the market -- Liquidity through -- so go into high street travel agent or tour operators. So I think -- think rated player in the travel -- be in doubt undercard caught our -- the -- put aside -- big trip to the floating market. Good today and -- packages from Dan Hubbard are up about -- And then as stellar as we have -- -- -- inventory the secrecy customers that to a -- and so that's how we actually. -- -- aggregate this content. Do you remember the days whereby. When the Fed is up Expedia booking dot com when we had ruled -- -- -- trouble competition but you do you would attract. Didn't see any of that slipping a brochure -- the hotel to have in comparison. And look for something. So this is exactly the -- in many other travel agencies across Europe across Asia. Whereby you kind of progress they have tended to hard Salamanca new border agency and is that's something the bush journalism -- -- this as the figures tended negligence on. You build a true -- vertical dip into the trend mining get different -- out get develop brochures are structured differently and so line. So -- probably is attributed to rising level whole process. So right -- archive system until -- week -- into rather like the likes of Expedia note -- GBS has some ideas into line. And distributed around -- clever but nevertheless here. So intense off -- -- marketing and travel industry how has it can enhance the travel experience right. Because of the -- -- trend we are able to boost the tech instances like this. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But actually with the social media with the mobile.

And yet our Washington monument actually set up a stunning star silver ghost or power off arsenal more in enhancing. The -- travel during. How well let me talk -- hard -- is very relevant Forex. Especially if oil the companies looking to globalise the product good distribution. Quite we had -- -- -- all we are leaders in mobile technologies. And traffic jams so -- that means that. About technology is -- -- revenue was the faster certainly no Manuel connections. That since that spending so much time in traffic -- -- We're using Lebanon well -- -- that traffic right. And Kansas one of the reasons why we see like in destinations -- -- now in in Jakarta are in the Philippines. Mobile bookings have rice alike closed basically people there spend so much time -- -- -- the would -- downtime -- media us. Look forward the next travel for electric. And so on your list is growing like crazy in Asia. Then it's not just mobile actually see it outside Eiffel not the end right. And smell doesn't have the best Justin -- feeder carrier Obama in managing caring -- -- the walking around. Downtown Jakarta -- Philippine should be -- in no time. He had sexually. Disney's -- instance a seller. So that's like paper play though no doubt the Samsung galaxy nor do so when -- were sluggish in Asia or kill story. -- much longer than an -- larger still. So -- this had been expecting a -- -- put pen tablet slightly smaller until I. So -- best when we're talking about having no barrel so a dominant Fairmont. More.

So what actually happens is that in Kabul absolute attract traffic to their best shopping malls or shopping Merrill's. Pro rate free more wipes out quite excess. Not to Adobe make their customer was accepting no Wi-Fi. Accept the -- So I'll let people more in Manila for example the global shopping sends search let's call it's clean it's got air conditioning.
