Winding Tree

Open source infrastructure for travel inventory distribution



Decentralized Infrastructure

No one owns the distribution “server”, because there’s no this server. Blockchain provides core features and hundreds of Winding Tree API instances provide business logic.

Easy Access

Winding Tree provides set of open source REST APIs for whole distribution workflow. Anyone can deploy them in own infrastructure and get access to the infrastructure.


Direct Distribution

It’s like P2P technology: Winding Tree helps clients (OTAs) get inventory directly from sources (Hotels PMS, Airline software).


Search Service

WAnyone can just download deploy and run own “GDS-like” service and provide access to OTAs. There will be hundreds alternatives of current middlemen, but all with same inventory. The market will adjust distribution fees to lowest.


Data Standards

Revolutionary approach requires a kind of convention over configuration for parties, and this is what our Data Standards about - make inventory information usable across all software in the industry.

How it Works

RE Conference
Amsterdam, The Netherlands

RE is one event of its kind. It is different from any other industry event. Because RE is where innovation meets real business need. RE is where conflict is good. RE is where we celebrate the benefits of frictions because this is what drives our industry forward. ‘RE’ is where you will be immersed in a creative (and unexpected) environment. RE is where you will look closely at the components of the business travel ecosystem and consider the changes that have happened and those yet to come.
