AI in business travel: A report for fans and skeptics

Artificial Intelligence in Business Travel: A report for fans and skeptics

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is arguably one of the hottest topics in our industry right now – but are business travel professionals on board, skeptical, or somewhere in between? BCD and the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) asked over 700 industry professionals for their thoughts on AI during GBTA Europe and GBTA APAC conferences last year.

The results of those conversations were collected into The Big Idea Report, a summary of how AI could drive transformation in business travel. The Big Idea touches on how AI is being used now in organizations, how future travel programs can leverage AI for an enhanced traveler experience, and business travel-specific use cases. Spoiler alert: Our industry has endless opportunities for incorporating AI in back- and front-office applications.
