Europe’s main exhibition and conference for corporate travel, The Business Travel Show 2013, took place at Earls Court, London earlier this week and Reel Monkey Productions was there to find out what lay ahead for the travel industry in 2013 and beyond.
More than 200 exhibitors were present including global airliners, travel management agencies, accommodation, hospitality, transport and technology suppliers to showcase to and meet with clients and potential buyers.
In addition to new products and services being announced by suppliers at the show there were a host of conferences and seminars which provided visitors an insight in to the present and the future of business travel.
Increasing business productivity whilst closely managing travel expenditure was a common theme for 2013 at the show as businesses try and grow out of the recent global recession. A possible factor for successful growth in the year ahead is the role technology will play as businesses and travellers demand convenience, comfort and above all cost-effectiveness.
Tune in again soon to view our video feature and highlights from the show.
