Travel managers' changing priorities post-covid

This recording was first broadcast at ITB's Travel Meet Asia: MICE & Corporate event on 9 June 2021.

From the need to rethink corporate travel policies to an overhaul of airline policies to the demand of touchless alternatives, travel managers must adapt to new ways of doing their jobs as their organisations resume travel. On 9 June's Travel Meet Asia session on 'Travel Managers' New Priorities', we explore some of the ways we see travel managers’ priorities shifting after 2020.
