BCD is the 2023 Most Admired Travel Management Company

For the seventh consecutive year and eleventh time total, BCD Travel was recognized as the Most Admired Travel Management Company (TMC) by the BTN Group. The announcement was made at the 16th annual The Beat Live on Dec. 5 in New York City. The Beat, a widely read business travel newsletter and website published by the BTN Group, asks readers each year to name their most admired technology company, travel management company, airline, payment company, lodging brand and car rental brand.

“It’s an honor to be recognized as Most Admired TMC by readers of The Beat for another consecutive year,” said Stephan Baars, president and CEO of BCD Travel. “I’ve seen firsthand how dedicated our teams are to our mission, vision and values which contributes to being an innovative and trusted partner for our clients. Thank you to all the readers who supported us and thank you to each and every one of our BCD employees for going above and beyond.” 

The Beat determined winners based on a reader-poll conducted earlier this year. Participants were not permitted to vote for their own companies.

This year has been a winning one for BCD, with over a dozen awards earned, including BTN Europe’s Leading TMCs 2023, Best TMC at the European Mission Awards in Italy, Travel Partner of the Year – Large TMC at the Business Travel Awards Europe 2023, and TMC of the Year at the Zakenreis Awards 2023 in the Netherlands. We were also named in the top three Best TMCs in Brazil by PANROTAS. BCD also remains a leader in sustainability in business travel.
