CSR, if we talked about everything except environment? | Oct. 6 | 10:30-11:30 a.m. CET
Julien Etchanchu, Managing Consultant, Advito
Business ethics, sourcing, mobility of PRMs, and many other important subjects are often overlooked in favor of the environment when we talk about CSR. And yet, the achievements of companies on the social and societal pillars are significant. What if we collectively took a look at these as they apply to travel? The AFTM offers you a workshop “in reverse” in order to approach CSR in all its components.
The economic models of suppliers: a necessary post-crisis evolution? | Oct. 6 | 3-4 p.m. CET
Valérie Sasset, Managing Director/Country Director for France, BCD Travel
Questions related to the economic models of business travel providers have been placed at the top of the debate in view of the consequences caused by the crisis. Commissions, pricing of customer support, cost per transaction, flat rate billing, Pay as you check, and reimbursement are all priority concerns for buyers during new calls for tenders. What are the responses of the suppliers concerned (TMC, airlines, hoteliers, etc.)? What are the new expectations of trave l managers and buyers? How do KPIs and reports adapt?
NDC, finally something concrete! | Oct. 7 | 4-5 p.m. CET
Cédric Lefort, Sr. Director, Solutions Consulting, BCD Travel
AFTM first started debating NDC in 2015. This session will offer “new” assessments, demonstrations and insights from BCD’s Lefort and other travel industry experts.
