THE FUTURE COMES NOW, AND IT WILL BE DISRUPTIVE!
We experience accelerated change in the corporate travel market and that brings up the underlying question – Is the way we have Managed Travel in the past up to the task for the future?
Welcome by NBTA
The airline industry – How will it develop?
Will it be an industry dominated by LCCs, or will Legacy Carriers be able to reposition themselves as the front runner? The airlines are working hard on developing new technologies and services, but will they be tailor made for the corporate market? Come and hear what industry leaders and buyers say, and take the opportunity to pose your questions.
Bjørn Kjos – CEO Norwegian Airlines
Personalization – Is this the future of Travel Management?
The individual traveller wants to be recognized when they travel for their company. They have become «travel experts» with an array of tools they use when booking their leisure trips. How should we meet this increased traveller demand? Listen to suggested solutions from experienced experts and travel buyers!
Caroline Strachan – VP American Express Consulting
Emma Emma Davey – EMEA Travel Manager for AIG
Finding the best offer and solution? Can the corporate solutions win?
You can expect more services and unbundling of prices to come soon. Not only from the airlines, but also from all other providers. The best offer or solution is never more than a google search or meta search away (kayak.com/momondo.com and their likes). Increased complexity will demand better tools. How can we create tools which will give both the user and the company everything they need?
Jesper Söderström – General Manager Amadeus Nordics
(more to come)
How will supplier companies need to adjust security and risk programs?
The risk of incidents and unwanted events have increased dramatically and Europe is on high alert. How will this impact travellers, buyers and suppliers? The latest poll from GBTA said that most traveller will still travel to Paris for business, but will we need to “upgrade” how we look on risk for travel even within Europe? What changes and challenges can we expect to meet, and what role should the TMC’s play?
All sessions will be moderated by Paul Tilstone – CEO Festive Road
We are waiting for confirmation from more exciting speakers, and an updated program with all the speakers will come shortly!
