09h00   Best practices for Vendor Management
The success of most travel policies relies on the relationships built around them. Over time, through responsiveness, honest communication, delivering on promises and full transparency when it comes to pricing, and the ability to meet expectations help lay the foundation for productive, mutually-beneficial vendor relationships. Being upfront and willing to share information is a basic element of trust for both sides.
So what best practices relating to Vendor Management should all successful partnerships have in place? Travel professionals are taking the time to invest in these relationships report great returns on streamlining and improving their respective programs.

Discussing insights learnt from GBTA global, and sharing local viewpoints – Robyn Christie will take you through the process and show you what success looks like.
