Research, Relax & Refresh Buyers Only Breakfast:
The Hilton Sandton
Johannesburg, South Africa
11 October 2019

Please do not register to attend if you are not a Corporate Travel Buyer or Breakfast Sponsor

This ABTA Buyers Breakfast will look at some little known ‘behind the scenes’ workings within the Card space – specifically around payments workflow and acceptance issues, the Airline space – specifically around revenue management and overbooking, and lastly the hotel space – specifically around cancellations, and yield management.

Delegates attending this event will deepen their knowledge of the travel industry from behind the scenes in some of their key suppliers, and will be able to answer some of the tough questions from their travellers, that previously seemed unanswerable.

One of the most valuable resources that any Travel Manager has is the combined and collective knowledge of industry peers.

ABTA Buyers Only breakfasts give Corporate Travel Managers and Buyers the opportunity to get together to identify trends, investigate challenges and evaluate opportunities within the business travel industry.
