You've heard about "the blockchain" everywhere. You've heard it's making people rich through Bitcoin, it's being used to change the way we access money, and it could have even farther-reaching implications. But what exactly is "the blockchain" and how does it affect the world we live in right now? This presentation will explore what blockchain technology is, what it's used for, where it's already changing the world, and how we can use it in the travel industry. 

 Direct Members - we will host a Direct Round Table session following the chapter meeting.    Please be sure to register for the session when you sign up for the Chapter meeting.
