Aug 27, 2013, 08:00 ET from Airline Business - Flightglobal

LONDON, August 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Aviation Industry publication Airline Business and frequent flyer management company Global Flight are co-organising the second Loyalty Americas conference in Chicago.

An impressive line up of speakers will cover a range of topics, addressing different issues loyalty managers in the travel industry are currently faced with and will be held from 10-11 September 2013 at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Chicago.

A presentation by Helane Becker of Cowen Securities about airline consolidation will be of particular interest to those in the industry, following the blocked merger between American Airlines and US Airways.

Delta's Karen Zachary will explain Delta's partnership strategy, which saw a recent shift of focus away from its SkyTeam membership to its various joint ventures with airlines around the world, putting a question mark behind the viability of the 15-year old alliance model.

Other top speakers include Michael Zea, CEO & President at Aimia, Mary Kay Caschetta, VP - Loyalty, Americas at Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group as well as charismatic Randy Petersen, Editor of InsideFlyer. International views will be brought to the debate thanks to speakers such as Iain Pringle, Head of Strategy at UK-based Avios and Jeremy Rabe, CEO at AeroMexico's Club Premier.

Loyalty specialists from more than 40 companies have already confirmed their attendance, ensuring that Loyalty Americas will once again be the most relevant dedicated gathering in the loyalty industry in the Americas this fall.
