ABTA – Mobile Business Travel

Thursday, June 18th, 2009

Yesterday I gave a talk at the monthly meeting of the Austrian Business Travel Assocciation (ABTA) at the Hotel Herrnhof in Vienna. The topic of the theme night was “Mobile Business Travel”. Therefore I present several solutions and visions using NFC. Other speakers that evening were Thomas Kreillechner (Lufthansa/Swiss) and Alexxandro Sansa (Marid Convention Bureau).


Stay tuned: At the end of 2009 the book mTourism – Mobile Dienste im Tourismus will be published including my article/findings on NFC in Tourism.

Finally I found a nice appartement in Vienna ;-) I’m now living in the Gumpendorfer Strasse in the 6th district of Vienna — right between Mariahilfer Strasse and Naschmarkt.
