With organisations and individuals reassessing their need to travel due to coronavirus travel managers and suppliers are doing it tough…really tough. We are hearing anecdotally of organisations cancelling all international travel and many placing severe restrictions on domestic travel. In addition, we have heard rumours of organisations placing restrictions on their staff attending meetings, events and conferences.
In order to get some clarity around what is really happening with travel and meetings policies we have developed a brief survey looking specifically at corporate travel and meetings policies. The findings from the survey will hopefully provide some useful insights for the business travel supply market and also enable travel buyers to benchmark their current actions against other organisations.
According to Survey Monkey the survey should only take three minutes to complete. If you are involved in developing, managing or disseminating your organisations travel policy could you please complete the survey today? We really want to get a snapshot now that can be used for comparison as the coronavirus situation evolves. Entries will therefore close this Wednesday 11th March at 5.00pm AEST.
Tony O’Connor from Butler Caroye has also published a piece today entitled “4 Steps to Protect and Manage Your Travel in 2020”, Considering measures you might take to manage the risk to yourself and your suppliers in the current environment.
