BTN Europe presents an overview of business travel and MICE predictions for this year
ExCeL London - 24-25 February 2021
IATA came in for some serious criticism last week at an Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) Executive Forum held in London at the Melia White House.
Industry leaders called on their peers to join forces in their quest to modernise outdated IATA regulations which they say are costing unnecessary millions and are a burden on companies' travel management. "Petty outdated rules that need to be scraped or at the least rewritten” was a quote. The very well supported gathering reflected the whole industry including senior airline and hotel representatives, some of the largest business travel specialists, and travel organisers from major international companies. The IATA situation has been taken forward to the European Commission. Other topics discussed included GDS and a thought provoking session chaired by Air Transport Group at Cranfield”s College of Aeronautics.
