Joel Noden of Videonations, a provider of HD quality video conferencing technology, explains to us that actually given the current financial pressures on corporate travel their business and technology can help companies increase productivity whilst reducing travel expenditure.

In our first video filmed at the recent Business Travel Show 2013 in London, we take a look at the serviced apartment sector which is seen as a potential growth area in the travel industry.

We spoke to Joyce Cawthorpe, Manager of the Association of Serviced Apartment Providers (ASAP) at the show, who outlines the benefits of using serviced apartments and the prospects of growth for its members in 2013. A recent calculation by ASAP founder member, Marlin Apartments, revealed that corporate travel buyers could save between 30% and 40% on their accommodation costs by switching from hotels to serviced apartments.
