The latest from the BTN Europe podcast series, featuring a panel of experts discussing the latest issues facing the managed travel industry.
A couple of weeks ago, BTN Europe published a story about some comments that Microsoft co-founder, Bill Gates, had said about the future of business travel, saying that he believed that 50% of business travel would go. The story rapidly generated indignation from a number of companies in the business travel sector.
So what will the new level of business travel post-Covid actually be?
Answering this question in this podcast are Jason Geall (Vice President & Regional General Manager, Northern Europe – American Express GBT), Neil Ruth (co0founder and CEO of booking platform TapTrip), Adrian Witschi (global lead for travel, expense and card programmes at Mondelez International) and Paul Tilstone (managing partner of Festive Road).
