Feb 24th-25th next year will see 250 suppliers, 175 experts and almost 7,500 visitors brought together at 2016’s Business Travel Show. Already the excitement is mounting as preparations are made behind the scenes at Olympia to host Europe’s largest conference and range of exhibitions for delegates in business travel. |
Here are some of the aspects of the conference that you can get involved in.
Hosted Buyer Programme
This innovative 3-day programme at the Business Travel Show aims to encourage national and global managers in the travel industry as well as procurement, and other specialists in both purchasing and sourcing travel products. One of the show’s main aims is to produce high quality learning and the opportunity to network for European corporate buyers in travel, and this programme ensures this will continue to happen.
There are certain prerequisites to qualify for the programme, but the exclusive conference and pre-show dinner that delegates are invited to attend are an invaluable opportunity for liaising with others in the business.
With such a full and wide-ranging conference programme featuring experts in the field, every level of knowledge is covered, as is every element in the huge variety of travel management related subjects. From negotiating with airlines to ‘going green’ and from the influence of the mobile phones in the industry to a Masterclass on social media, the programme is wide ranging and comprehensive.
As a corporate in the travel industry, whether you are a buyer or manager, you will find a huge amount of information designed to help you source new products and discover solutions to any problems you face. You will also have the chance to meet suppliers and get your market information up to date. Browse the Responsible Travel Management stand, the Airline Pavilion or the International Hotel Village and you will be inundated with inspiration and motivation to improve and develop your business.
A crucial part of doing business in any capacity is networking, and the Business Travel Show is the ideal stage for doing just that. With a programme of networking events that are not only enjoyable, but also invaluable for meeting peers, buyers and suppliers, this is the place to be if you are seeking new impetus for your business.
How To Get There
Hosted at Olympia on Hammersmith Road, the Business Travel Show can be accessed easily. Kensington Olympia on the District Line is the nearest tube station, but if you are flying into London for the event, a pre-booked transfer direct form the airport is the best way to travel. Whether you arrive at Stanstead, Heathrow or Gatwick, a business airport transfer can be booked in advance, to help your journey go without a hitch.
