Amadeus Rail Innovation Forum 2017: RAILyourWAY

June 27, 2017
Author: Marta Desviat

Antoine de Kerviler opened the Amadeus Rail Innovation Forum 2017 with a presentation on the event theme – RAILyourWAY – and how Amadeus is helping railways become more successful by being innovative. Here we bring you the highlights.

A lot has changed since the last 2015 Rail Forum in Barcelona. The travel industry is evolving and railways are experiencing how dynamic the market is. But which are the game-changing trends we should pay attention to? 

Game-changing trends impacting the rail industry 

  • Personalisation: is increasing conversion rates and improving the rail traveller’s shopping experience.
  • Social Media: has an inspirational potential than can even trigger a booking. Pinterest or Instagram are inspiring travellers, and start-ups such as Wayonara are already taking advantage. 
  • Mobile: is becoming critical to winning traveller loyalty as the majority of travellers’ digital moments are now mobile.

"We're in an era of fierce competition for rail where customer centricity is paramount" Antoine de Kerviler, Global Head of Rail & Ground Travel, AmadeusTweet:
