The Spirit of Innovation in Travel
As the travel industry moves beyond the recovery phase and enters a period of rapid growth, a pressing question arises: “What comes next?” This anticipation was met with enthusiasm at the conference, where future growth areas were a focal point.

“Every industry needs to innovate and so does the travel industry. We are constantly innovating in terms of efficiency, quality, customer service and even marketing. For instance, AI such as TripGenie can enhance customer service and marketing by integrating technology and content, to provide the best value to our customers,” he said.
Mr Liang also emphasised AI’s widespread impact on the travel industry, boosting productivity, enhancing customer service, and providing users with highly personalised travel recommendations.
For example, Trip.com’s AI-curated lists are able to provide travellers with the top-ranked offerings as well as the best deals. This enables a higher level of personalisation at every stage of the travel journey, with AI as a powerful enabler.

Currently, the company has over 1.7 million global accommodation listings, flights from over 600 airlines, and a network of over 90,000 ecosystem partners, including group tours, attractions, and car rental providers.
At the conference, China’s burgeoning potential in the global travel arena was also highlighted, with the further relaxation of visa-free restrictions, payment facilitations, and tourism promotion strategies such as free layover transit tours launched in Shanghai and engaging marketing campaigns that showcase the country’s offerings.
The Group also reiterated its commitment to quality customer service, revealing that the human touch is key to ensuring travellers enjoy a wonderful trip.
Sustainability was also another key theme, with Trip.com Group integrating strong ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) commitments into its business goals. These ESG initiatives include promoting low-carbon travel options, supporting family-friendly policies, and community revitalisation, all to ensure mutual benefits for customers, partners, and the wider community.
