State of the industry: corporate travel megatrendsThe Covid-19 pandemic has decimated the travel industry and
issues that may have previously registered only on the fringes have been
brought to the forefront. The world has changed and travel management may need
to change with it. Hear from an expert panel and discover State of the Industry
data that will point the way to travel management’s future.
Sustainability: getting back on the road smarterTravel reductions in 2020 had a positive impact on the
environment. As business travel resumes, it’s critical to take meaningful
sustainability actions and align with your organisation’s sustainability
Geopolitics and corporate travelBTN’s State of the Industry Report found that, beyond
Covid-19, geopolitical issues were the greatest concern among travel managers
surveyed in autumn 2020. This session will present how this may affect the
corporate travel landscape – from border entry requirements to duty of care to
tax implications and everything in between.

including travel voiced an awakened sensitivity to systemic racism, unconscious
bias against minorities and LBGTQ communities and widespread social injustice.
Moving forward, companies will be examining these issues at all levels of their
organisation and using this to drive change which can potentially broaden the
net of candidates for travel industry recruitment and managed travel
