Christian Watts - Founder and CEO at Magpie Travel

Christian is the founder and CEO of Magpie Travel, a SaaS company focused on content management for the tours and activities sector.

He brought the first Hop On Hop Off sightseeing service to San Francisco, under the City Sightseeing brand.

During the last 20 years in the Tours & Activities industry, with 150 distributor contracts, as well as Travel Agents, Concierges and Affiliates, he learnt that the industry needed a better way to manage content and increase distribution. The entire industry operates via a handful of inefficient extranets, and a few billion emails each year with Word, Excel, and PDF attachments, along with some Dropbox links.

He started Magpie to solve these problems, and help companies manage their content, and increase sales via broader and more efficient distribution.
