The presence of Laura Wade Gery, chief executive of Tesco.com, at the summit is baffling people somewhat.
Why would she attend almost the entire conference, rather than the usual in-and-out approach favoured by many high fliers at these events?
Sure she has an interesting tale to tell but also coming along with a business development manager? No wonder tongues are wagging over lunch.
Following her presentation, Travel Weekly editor Richard Siddle asks her if the supermarket giant will explore moving into travel.
We would never rule anything out, she admits.
Cue further wagging of tongues.
