Pre-show session: Sharpen up your airline contracting
Tuesday, Feb. 25 at 4:30 p.m.
Olivier Benoit, Vice President & Global Air Practice at Advito, speaks on how to get the best deal out of a carrier in a market that’s increasingly complex.
Conscious travel is a major theme of the show. Sustainability has newfound urgency for corporate travel programs, but most won’t have to start from scratch. Programs can simply apply more strategic rigor to tactics they’re already using or exploring, advises BCD’s Tony McGetrick, who’ll be on-site at the Olympia London. Via the BTS blog, he proposes three ways corporate programs can jump-start sustainability.
Over two full days starting Feb. 26, attendees will have opportunities to:
- Discover ways to cut costs while keeping travelers happy
- Identify new industry opportunities
- Get a first-hand look at new products and innovations
- Hear the latest on industry updates and trends
- Exchange advice and insights with industry contacts
Conference goers can stop by Booth B320 to visit BCD Travel for insights on how to elevate managed travel programs in 2020.
