60 seconds with Business Travel Show advisory board member and managing director, Europe, TripBam

 

What’s keeping you awake at night? 

The fact that 70% + of European Businesses, recently surveyed, still had no air or hotel rate auditing tool. 

What innovation will make the biggest impact on travel management in the next 12 months? 

It will be the opportunity to access more and more smart start-up innovators and disruptors via simple APIs and leverage some of the exciting tools that are emerging.

How will business travel look in 2022? 
Video Conferencing will be better than ever yet we will still travel increasingly, with more technology the value of face to face meetings just keeps getting higher.

How will managing business travel look in 2022? 
We will need to be part geek, part IT help desk and still an expert on every element of the increasingly diverse travel ecosystem. Plus, we’ll need eyes in the back of our heads to keep alert to new trends.

How will the business traveller look in 2022? 
I expect flared trousers and kipper ties to return to fashion……at least I hope so because I have a wardrobe filled with them.

How will we, as an industry, best survive the next three years? 
We will keep evolving just like we’ve always done….if nothing else; Darwin would have been proud of us!

Why do you attend the Business Travel Show? 
Because it’s the ‘one stop shop’ for everything business travel; airlines, hotels, travel associations, shed loads of tech and a chance to meet old friends for a drink.

What are you hoping to see on the conference programme this year? 
More of the same; the hosted buyers is loved by suppliers who are guaranteed great interactions with decision makers.
