Eye-catching names among the companies taking part in TFWA i.lab Asia include Baidu International (affiliate of the Chinese internet giant), Qunar (travel search engine and online travel platform) and Woohoo, an AI Assistant speaker for the hospitality and travel industry. Smart logistics specialist Cainiao, part of Alibaba, will also be there. Its General Manager in Hainan, Echo Zhu, sees participation “as a window for Cainiao and Alibaba's cutting-edge technologies as well as our ESG initiatives directly to our targeted audience like global brands and retailers, looking to enter the Chinese market." Another participant, Intelligent Tracking Systems, has successfully exhibited at TFWA i.lab in Cannes. ITS Managing Director Morten Pankoke is confident that being part of TFWA i.lab Asia will enable him to “kick off the introduction of our digital personal assistant to airports, retailers and advertisers from the Asia Pacific region”.
