Travel Technology Industry Vertical
The TravelTech hashtag #traveltech is used on social media like Twitter to identify and group information on tech startups in the broader travel industry including airlines, flights, hotels, accommodation, ground transport, tour guides and the like.
We encourage you to use the hashtag #startsoc also when you use #traveltech.
