Overview: If you Google "blockchain," you'll find an amazing 322 million results. Even IATA, the airline industry trade association, has brought out a paper on the topic. So it must be the right thing to do. Or is it? This Blockchain workshop aimed to review what are the Use Cases for Blockchain at Airlines and Travel Companies, as well as help delegates come away with a better understanding of whether or not the technology is suitable for their companies, or not.

The objectives of this meeting included to:
• Enable participants to get a better understanding of Blockchain & Distributed Ledger technology
• See some of the use cases currently being deployed in the airline & travel industry
• Be able to better answer the question "is blockchain something we should consider for our business?"

The presentations from this workshop will be available shortly. Check back again soon.
