As duty of care continues to climb up the agenda for corporate travel managers, the Business Travel Show will tackle the topic in its conference programme and a range of exhibiting companies will be offering CSR-related services.
Bernard Harrop, from Project Icarus, leads a masterclass tutorial in the ROI of Sustainability and Paul Broughton, sales director EMEA, for Chambers Travel Management is moderating a session on Safety, Security and Sustainability.
The Business Travel Show, which takes place in London on February 5-6, is Europe’s main exhibition and conference for corporate travel buyers, managers and bookers to source, learn and network.
Exhibitors tackling the subject of duty of care will include Layer Cake, Water-to-Go, International SOS, Masta, Aria Assistance, The Anvil Group and Chartis Insurance/AIG.
Layer Cake will be showcasing Mr Travel which the company is billing as the first business travel security game to be designed specifically to allow companies to fulfil this obligation to employees.
The game exposes the players to a variety of potentially risky situations, such as surviving an assault or kidnapping, choosing the right taxi, broaching sensitive topics with locals (for example: religion and politics), avoiding food poisoning, dealing with difficult customs officers and recognising counterfeit goods. Water-to-Go is a water bottle with a unique filter, which allows travellers to take water from almost any source and deliver pure clean drinking water anywhere at a fraction of the cost of bottled water.
Using nano technology developed for the space programme, the bottle’s filter removes 99.9 per cent of all bacteria water-borne diseases and viruses as well as eliminating harmful chemicals, heavy metals and even poisons such as arsenic. “Senior corporate travel managers responding to the Business Travel Show’s annual survey revealed they expect an increased focus on duty of care to be the fourth biggest change in their roles in 2013,” explained David Chapple, event director, Business Travel Show. “At the Business Travel Show, they will find a range of CSR suppliers, and they can attend free, high-quality conference sessions that will show how, if managed well, they can hit all three strategic objectives, producing simultaneous wins for themselves, their travellers and the environment, and also that fulfilling green and duty of care obligations in a corporate travel programme can actually reduce costs.” Visitors can register to attend the Business Travel Show for free at businesstravelshow.com
