ARLINGTON and DULLES, VA. – March 8, 2023 – ATPCO and Airlines Reporting Corp. (ARC) announced today that Elevate + TravelConnect, their first jointly hosted industry conference, will take place April 9-11, 2024, at the Washington Hilton in Washington, D.C.
The conference, which will bring together travel leaders and industry stakeholders for thought-provoking discussions, educational breakout sessions, and networking opportunities, was previously planned for October 2023. Moving the conference dates from October to April will support the anticipated record number of industry attendees.
With industry collaboration as a pillar of both ATPCO’s and ARC’s value and purpose, the first-of-its-kind combined conference by both airline-owned entities, will enable the industry to gather and learn about topics such as data and payments to offers and settlement. It is an opportunity for attendees to build the complete picture on one stage together to create a bigger, better conference experience under one roof over one week.
The Washington Hilton is a historic hotel located within blocks of Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan in Washington D.C., having hosted all of the U.S. Presidents since 1968. The location is less than two miles from the White House and the National Mall and all that downtown D.C. has to offer.
“We are thrilled to host this joint event for our customers and partners in the nation’s capital,” said ARC President and CEO Lauri Reishus. “Given the critical roles ARC and ATPCO play within the travel buying ecosystem, this event is the perfect opportunity to share and discuss the latest innovations and developments in airline content distribution, retailing and pricing."
ATPCO President and CEO, Alex Zoghlin, added, “Both companies are very much looking forward to gathering the industry together in DC. It is the perfect way to demonstrate how collaboration for the betterment of the industry takes place. An in-person event partnership just made sense, given the synergies between ARC and ATPCO, who are each working to build industry solutions and have the same airline partners.”
