Why you should be at The Business Travel Show 2015

Feb 18, 2015

The Business Travel Show is one of the biggest and most exciting events in our calendar. It’s Europe’s biggest free travel exhibition for corporations, where buyers, managers, employees and bookers can come along for free, learn about the industry’s latest news and technological developments, and potentially source a new travel solution.

Business Travel Direct will of course be there – we wouldn’t miss it! We’ve been preparing for this for months now – we’ve created brand new company brochures, our company magazine, lots of give-aways and goodies, and if you’re really, really lucky, you might just be the winner of a pair of Eurostar tickets at our Business Travel Show competition. We’re at GTMC 7, so if you are attending this year, please do pop by our stand for a chat about how our latest products and services could benefit you and your organisation.

If this is the first time you’re hearing about the Business Travel Show, you might be wondering what the big deal is, and why on earth should you be going?

Well, not only is this probably one of the most important events of the year in our industry, but the Business Travel Show have really out-done themselves this year – with an expected 6,500 attendees and over 250 exhibitors attending, 2015 is definitely the year to be going. It’s a very informal environment that gives you the opportunity to network with a variety of lovely people over a cup of coffee, as well as have some much-needed face-to-face time with perspective new suppliers.

Whether you’re a big global brand or a smaller, modest corporation, I can guarantee you that there will be something there that could help you create the cost and time-effective travel solution you’ve been looking for. And if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, then not to worry – there’s over 50 talks and sessions set out by industry experts to help you learn all you need to know about corporate travel.
