Early in the decade, travel managers were focused on keeping costs low as business travel ramped up during the global economic recovery. But as costs have increased in recent years, many are looking for a more holistic way to understand what their organization spends on corporate travel outside of just flights, hotels, and food.
This week, we examined a new synergy growing between corporate events and the wider world of corporate travel. It seems that both travel management companies and meetings organizations see a huge opportunity to work together, if only the bureaucratic red tape that separates different departments can be dealt with. Security and technology are areas where both sides can collaborate, as well.
We also have the latest on Airbnb's push into hotel distribution, United Airlines' potential introduction of premium economy in the United States, and Booking Holdings' long awaited move into Airbnb-type apartment rentals. Take a look below.
