How to ensure you are meeting your Duty of Care responsibilities
The GBTA Foundation launched the Travel Risk Management Maturity Model (TRM3™) to help companies evaluate their risk management program and identify opportunities for improvement. This session will highlight what every travel manager should do to ensure they are meeting their Duty of Care responsibilities.

Unpacking your ‘Meetings Incentives Conferences and Events’ portfolio to unlock additional opportunities, controls and savings.
Our panel discussion will answer questions and highlight important aspects like your Duty of Care responsibility when managing your MICE portfolio, what controls can be put in place when trying to cut costs and how to apply the same savings opportunities and principles as corporate travel management.

How the Traveler Experience and the Sharing Economy will be impacting your Travel Policy in 2017
GBTA’s latest survey found that the number of businesses allowing their employees to use ride-hailing services such as Uber and Lyft has increased by nearly 15% since June. Over the same period, the share permitting workers to book lodging through Airbnb and similar services increased 20%. Yet despite that growth, half of corporate travel policies still don’t explicitly allow employees to use ride-hailing apps, and 70% make no mention of using home-rental services. This session uncovers whether organisations are changing travel policy to include Uber and Airbnb as approved suppliers and if companies can afford to ignore the benefits of the Sharing Economy.
