Webinar Date: Tuesday 11th April 2017 12.00pm (Noon)AEST
Over the past nineteen years, Tony O’Connor, the region’s most prominent independent travel supply chain consultant, has seen technology come to dominate the travel supply chain. While travel buyers have focussed a lot on online booking tools, his belief is that not enough attention has gone into the other 70% of the technology mix and most importantly, how it all fits together.
In this free webinar Tony will be addressing a number of crucial questions for travel category managers, such as:
- What are the various systems?
- Which ones are optional and which ones are not?
- What do they do for you?
- Do you need them?
- What do they cost?
- And how should you best handle each one in your travel procurement?
If you are responsible for the travel and expense category in your organisation then you should attend this webinar.
If you are attending BTTB 2017 on 2nd and 3rd May in Sydney, the region’s biggest and best business travel conference, this webinar will equip you with the knowledge you need to ask the most pertinent questions during the various panel discussions or when meeting potential suppliers in the trade show.
