Event Description

Cape Town, South Africa
29 May 2019

In a recent industry survey, an overwhelming majority of respondents from across all industry sectors indicated that the industry does not need MORE travel technology, but rather better integration of current technologies.
This ABTA Corporate Travel Forum will address how companies can better understand their technology requirements – based on company culture and governance, as well as the needs of the traveller – and then how to ensure that the technologies they have or will be implementing can effectively be integrated not only with each other, but within the companies managed travel programme.

ABTA’s Corporate Travel Industry Forums bring together the leading Travel Buyers, TMC’s and Travel Suppliers to discuss key trends, challenges and opportunities affecting their region, and addressing how these trends are impacting the global Travel Industry as a whole.

If you want to keep your finger on the pulse with regards to your local and global travel industry whilst increasing your network of travel professionals, then these events are for you.

As with most things in life, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution, and technology is no different.
This session will see 2 brief presentations outlining the pro’s and con’s of having a travel
programme that is highly dependent on technology with minimal human intervention, versus one
that is far more human touch focused, with less use of technology.
