Description

Disruptive Technology: Making business travel simple and enjoyable as leisure!

Business travel is as universal and guaranteed as taxes are – employees and companies accept it, deal with it, and try to effectively build policy and traveler-friendly solutions around it. However, in recent years, expectations from business travelers have been constantly increasing. In fact, they consider business travel experience while evaluating their job offers. As to attract and sustain 'best-in-class talent', in this day in age it is critical to provide a desirable work-travel experience.

Technology has already revolutionized the leisure segment of the travel industry, making it easier and cheaper to book a flight, train ticket, car or hotel room anywhere in the world. So, how are you achieving the same experience for business travel? Furthermore, how are you making it more productive, enjoyable, safer, while reducing the operational costs associated with travel?

Join us for our educational Lunch & Learn event in as we delve into the conversation: “how is technology influencing the traveler experience and the company's bottom line.” Not to mention, get a chance to win amazing prizes!
