2019 Industry Forecast
Do you wonder how economic factors and supplier strategies will affect your business travel program in 2019? No need to wonder anymore, because we’ve just released our all-new 2019 Industry Forecast.
Emerging technologies will disrupt the business travel industry. Will your program be ready?
Blockchain, chatbots, machine learning, virtual reality (VR) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are among the emerging technologies capturing the imagination of the business travel community. These innovations have the potential to be truly disruptive forces. But precisely how they will change corporate travel, and how travel buyers can prepare, isn’t yet clear.
To help corporate travel buyers better understand and prepare to use these technologies, we are publishing a series of simple-to-understand and relevant papers.
