bannermockup-zipkickJason Will was named one of the 35 young leaders as visionaries in the world of digital travel at the PhoCusWright Conference this year. We were fortunate to be able to snag him for a chat.  The Class of 35 interacts with the industry’s best and brightest during The PhoCusWright Conference and participation exposes the group to today’s travel luminaries as a critical step to becoming the leaders who will drive strategy, innovation and growth. Jason shared with us his plans for Zipkick and why it brings a new approach to travel. Jason explained to us that Zipkick users now have the ability to find what’s relevant without scroll bars, radio buttons or searching thousands of different options through a simple and repeatable process. They will be able to easily customize preferences, search and book in just a couple of clicks on a reliable and secure platform. How great is that? We think simplifying the travel experience on the net is essential to it’s future.
