The Business Travel Show

Updated on February 10, 2017

Business Travel Show Issues for 2017

The Business Travel Show 2017 will be tackling more questions than ever in respect of the changes that have dominated media outlets over the last six months. The most immediate aspect is Donald Trump's travel restrictions on seven Muslim- majority nations. Although the legislation is currently suspended by a Judge, a decision that has been ratified by the appeal Court with only reference to a Supreme Court available to the new President to reverse, this has created fear and uncertainty in the future. According to a survey conducted in January by the Global Business Travel Association, almost a third of U.S. travel professionals said they expected that their company would reduce business travel within the next three months as a result of the ban. A similar number said they believed it would probably instigate a downturn in their company’s business travel.

How Brexit is Changing Travel

The other dominating factor is the Brexit issue. The Business Travel Show is running one of its many conference sessions on the topic where a number of panel experts will have their say. Certainly, UK corporate buyers are facing higher prices thanks to Brexit. Indeed, a Business Travel Show poll has shown that prices have already increased for 16 per cent of corporate travel buyers in Britain compared to six per cent across Continental Europe.

There has been generally a stolid "the show must go on" typically British response to the result of David Cameron's rocket of a referendum, but the doubts created have definitely created a spanner to international trade. As one British business travel coordinator said: "Currently, it's business as usual. The world is bigger than Brexit. However, the uncertainty means that future investment projects go on hold.”

Networking at the Business Travel Show

The Business Travel Show is an excellent networking opportunity for those in charge of the ever tightening purse strings. It is a particularly good event for those tasked with finding a better pricing and service model for travel needs. A number of travel management companies will be exhibiting to prove that they can provide a high touch personal service with the latest in technology to ensure that all flights, hotels and other auxiliary needs can still be managed by a dedicated team who understand the dynamics of a client.

There are also a number of features that will provide a specific meeting point for purchasers . The Conference Programme will provide sessions on everything from online booking to using data to provide a more focused travel programme. The International Hotel Village includes all the best known hotel big hitters under one roof as well as an Airline Pavilion for the carriers with the latest on their new products and policies.

The Business Travel Show in 2017 takes place on 22 and 23 February and 8,000 delegates are expected to attend over the two days. There is certainly much to discuss as the world enters a new era of relationships inside and outside the European union.
