August Meetup – Thursday 22 August 2013 at 19:00
For the August Chapter of our WebMob Thailand events, we are happy to welcome Peter Lee from Expedia Singapore and Lusarun “Trumph” Silpsrikul, founder of the Bangkok-based Facebook store assistant: Page365.
How Expedia has revolutionized travel with technology.
Expedia, the Internet-based travel website company, was started by Microsoft and has always been technology driven.
Expedia is now a leader on the travel and hospitality markets with several brands, including Expedia.com, Hotels.com and Venere.
Peter Lee, Senior Director Market Management Asia Pacific at Expedia, will give us an overview of the travel industry and explain us how technology has helped the company to stay ahead of competition.
PAGE365 Your Social Store Assistant
Page365 helps Facebook shop owners to deal with all the orders, questions and comments that they receive from their visitors with a natural language processing (NLP) engine.
How does that work? This is what Trumph, the founder of the startup, will tell us. And much more!
The talks will be followed by the usual Q&A session and the networking time, giving everyone the opportunity to meet and further explore the topics.
