Participants Reviews
Travel Tech Conference Russia is a very promising event in the travel-tech space, driven with passion, able to attract international brands, speakers, partners from its infancy and expected to become the travel startup gathering in Russia
Nicola Farronato
Founder and CEO at B-sm@rk
The event was really interesting, well structured and with great speakers. It was also a very exceptional opportunity to get in contact with very relevant professionals of the local tourism industry, which is something very valuable, especially for company like ours which is based pretty far from Russia. It is also a better event to take part in, than the typical "travel distribution event", because the main reason of the participants to be there is not selling or buying, but to share ideas and experiences

Sergei Pronin
"I enjoyed speaking at Travel Tech Conference Russia as it was my first Russian conference experience ever. The local market is full of opportunities and serves more and more Russian customers every year. Therefore, it was great to meet not only our current partners but also find new ones. TTCR is definitely an event where both Russian and International travel professionals have a great opportunity to meet and exchange ideas and experience".

— Zdenek Komenda, Chief Business Development Officer at

"The very idea and concept of Travel Tech Conference Russia, that united representatives of various travel industry segment at one event, are unique, very useful from pratical stand point and quite promising for effecitve exchange of information on global and Russian technology trends, quality expert opinions, internet technology opportunities for aviation and hotel segments of the market. Such interactions between professional experts and creators of latest technology solutions definitely provide opportunites for business development — both for companies and travel industry as a whole. I was amazed by high quality of presentations and discussions by respected speakers and participants as well as by quality of organization and informational support before, during and after the event".

— Grigory Pomerantsev, managing partner at Aeropartner

"We liked rich content, variety of international speakers and informal atmosphere which allowed for great communication during the breaks. Although number of participants wasn’t hign, organizers managed to get lots of interesting people from the industry to their event. The conference definitely has great potential and it’s good to see some "fresh speakers" at travel industry event like that".

— Mikhail Ioffe and Alexander Zhukov (Aeroclub)

"Thank you so much for the conference! It was really high quality event with lots of interesting subjects discussed. Next time it would be great to see more participants — new business contacts are important thing for events like that. Thank you for making events like this one — in general, I liked it a lot!"

— Alexey Saveliev (AccorHotels)

"Travel Tech Conference Russia was an amazing event. Its year 2 since its inception, so still in its infancy but as a result, attracted those "pioneers" who are passionate about riding the upcoming wave of travel technology expansion in Russia and CIS states. We have left the event with a very solid lead list of both travel industry and developer contacts based and would highly recommend this event to anyone with an interest in the Russian speaking travel technology marketplace".

— David Turnbull, Co-Founder and CCO at SnapShot

"For us, in general the event was really great, especially considering it was only second edition. The representation of not only Russian companies, but also European like and ourselves was very properly curated and bringing a lot of very relevant names. Thanks to the event, we have a couple of ongoing conversations with big Russian companies, so for us it was a very worth experience. My only complaint on the event could only be related to the 3 days in a dow rain. But this, I guess, falls out of your responsibility".

— Jorge Diaz, Founder & CEO at AirGateway

"I liked to see international participants — that makes the event and subjects discussed on it different from other events held in Moscow. I hope, Yandex. Avia will have new partners thanks to the acquaintances made at the event".

— Anna Vinokourova, PM at Yandex.Avia

"The organizers did a great job bringing relevant and diverse audience to the event. The speakers and the content of presentations were also very interesting and relevant".
