Cornerstone’s CEO, Mat Orrego, wrote a passionate article about the way in our industry has stifled competition and erected walls to limit access. For ideas to generate and flourish, he posits that we need openness, shared systems, and access.
Mat writes, “we have built walls that keep each other out. We limit access and content in the name of… what? Making more money? Having proprietary systems? If we were to, instead, break down the barriers and give each other access, our industry might start to catch up. And when we catch up, we have happier travelers who are ready to travel more often and spend more money.”
In Mat’s opinion, if we are committed to the advancement of our industry, we have no choice but to tear down the walls we have artificially built.
