PhoCusWright annually produces the acclaimed PhoCusWright Conference, a gathering of global travel industry leaders, visionary thinkers and innovators with the "next big idea." PhoCusWright is the research authority at the intersection of the Internet and the global travel industry, delivering industry-standard B2B and B2C marketplace intelligence through syndicated subscriptions and custom research on market segments, trends and geographies. PhoCusWright was founded by Philip Wolf in 1994, as the secular shift of online travel sales, marketing and distribution was unfolding. Wolf is an authority on the impact of technology on the travel industry and speaks frequently at events around the world. He will continue as chairman of PhoCusWright Inc. The company becomes a wholly owned subsidiary of Northstar Travel Media LLC. "The addition of PhoCusWright provides Northstar with leadership in the fastest-growing segment of travel, tourism and hospitality: the convergence of digital technology and the travel industry," said Thomas Kemp, chairman and CEO of Northstar Travel Media. "We're very pleased that Philip and his talented team will be working in partnership with us to grow PhoCusWright's event and research business through marketing and content synergies with Northstar."
