An analysis of key trends and business opportunities for the travel industry

Business travel is big news. Even though the technological advancements in the past decade has provided plenty of options to communicate from far away, the role of physical meetings is still important. The positive 2018 forecast for the global economy, as a result of growing trade and improved climate in financial markets, is expected to boost business travel globally. This industry is changing rapidly, requiring travel businesses to adapt in order to cater for traveler needs.

This webinar provides an insight into the key trends and developments in business travel for this year. In particular, the webinar discusses how technology, the growing number of millennial business travelers, the sharing economy and the desire to combine leisure with business are altering the face of the industry.

Whereas such radical changes may challenge many players in the industry, the webinar seeks to underline how these developments present lucrative business opportunities. The webinar goes on to outline practices and strategies that tourism businesses should embark upon in order to capitalize on technological changes and increasingly complex consumer needs to grow.
