MIAMI BEACH, Fla. -- In competing with transportation network companies, should operators strive to provide on-demand service, near-demand booking options, both, or stay reservation-based? Or all of the above? 

The chauffeured transportation industry is at a crossroads about how to present the most feasible, competitive booking options for a traditional chauffeured clientele as well as an app-centric younger generation not yet fully enlightened about the advantages of reservation-based luxury transportation.

That subject and many sidebars will be the focus of a Technology Mixology interactive panel scheduled for the LCT Leadership Summit, May 22-24, at the SLS South Beach Hotel in Miami Beach, Fla. Hosted by LCT editors, the panel will include Mark Gentry, CEO of Limo Anywhere, Tarek Mallah, CEO of Karhoo, and Raj Grewal, CEO of Limo Alliance. This discussion will span audience questions informed by LCT's recent industry survey on how Uber is affecting limousine operations. This “living whitepaper” will define the issues and form real, actionable solutions moving forward. The panel will be held Tuesday, May 24 at 11 a.m.
