Good Travel Management attend Business Travel Show 2017

I am just recovering from a long but very enjoyable day at the Business Travel Show held at Olympia in London for the industry's annual "must attend" event. (When will I ever learn high heels are never a good idea for pounding the floors of the exhibition!)

Sore feet aside, it was great to catch up with so many friends, colleagues and familiar faces from Airlines, Hotels Groups, Rail & Car Hire providers, Technology Companies, Travel Buyers and fellow Travel Management Companies (TMC's) This event enables the travel trade to share ideas, best practise and showcase new and innovative products.

What always astounds me is the high levels of passion and experience we hold in this resilient industry. With so much uncertainty in the economy, world events and the rapid development of technology, the travel sector battles hard to stay ahead of the game in order to deliver the best possible services to the end user – “the Business Traveller”. It was great to talk and gain feedback from Travel Buyers who place such high importance on achieving a cost effective, yet balanced travel programme which works for all their employees through forming excellent working partnerships with their suppliers. It can never be underestimated how International travel shapes our Country’s growth and prosperity.

I fell in love with the travel industry when I was just 16... 24 years on I still have the same enthusiasm and dedication to this wonderful industry like many of my peers. Here's to another 20 years!! Thanks folks for a great show....

Did you attend? Let us know what you thought of the show in the box below...
