Leading the charge for high-performance retailing at World Aviation Festival

Marketing Team - October 31, 2022


This year’s record-breaking World Aviation Festival was an excellent opportunity for air transport executives to talk about the latest technology and strategies driving the industry forward. The Accelya team took center stage to talk about revenue management, game-changing innovation, and our vision as the industry emerges into a third horizon of value. Mark McDonald, Accelya’s Global Sales and Business Development, summarizes our participation in the event and how we’re leading the charge for retailing and distribution transformation.

  • In his “sold out” roundtable, Tye Radcliffe gave us his take on how the industry is moving into the third horizon where airlines replace monolithic for modular and use data science to create a ‘perpetual motion’ of value to its customers and partners.
  • Bill Cavendish showcased the versatility of his airline knowledge by participating in an expert panel on revenue management, continuous pricing, and demand forecasting.
  • Our new Chief Revenue Officer, Andrew Wilcock, made his debut as an Accelya spokesperson discussing what groundbreaking innovation the air transport industry can expect over the coming months and years with Henry Harteveldt of Atmosphere Research.

Mark McDonald, Global Sales and Business Development, summarizes the World Aviation Festival experience in the video below. Watch it to learn more about the World Aviation Festival 2022 experience.
