“Last year’s event was such an incredible success virtually that we wanted to retain that aspect of it, but we also want to practice what we preach by showcasing the importance of meetings and events in the business world
“The corporate travel industry is back in business. It is speeding ahead with every intention of helping companies of all sizes, across all sectors travel more safely, sustainably, and efficiently.

“I encourage all businesses that travel to attend the event to equip themselves with the knowledge and tools needed to help them in the next post-pandemic phase. Innovation is at the very heart of what we provide for clients and customers and the hybrid event will also showcase that.”
