What are TMCs doing wrong when it comes to providing data to buyers? And what can buyers need to do to make it work better for them?
TMCs are using proprietary data formats and definitions. Data integrity and completeness are not on the top of the list. Buyers need to demand full transparency, correctness in an industry standard format.
When it comes to business travel, what keeps you awake at night?
All parties take interest in maintaining their own income/standards.
What innovation will make the biggest impact on travel management in the next 12 months?
There is not one innovation, but a paradigm shift. Technology will evolve and finally bring simple and cost-effective solutions to the business traveller. We can get rid of the 'intermediaries' who do nothing but add cost.
How will business travel look in 2022?
I would envisage that it is time for actually considering the environmental effects of travel.
How will managing business travel look in 2022?
Managed travel will be much less 'managed', bringing the right suppliers and tooling together to bring a good quality and transparent service to the traveller.
How will the business traveller look in 2022?
The new business traveller will be expecting a transparent service. Getting rid of the complexity and hassle.
How will we, as an industry, best survive the next three years?
The best way to survive is to be realistic, transparent and open to new developments. Step out of your own box and synergise for maximum effect.
What will buyers learn from your session?
How real synergy and adopting global standards can benefit you and the industry as a whole.
What drives you mad about corporate travel? What would you put in Room 101?
Protectionism and sticking to an outdated business model.
