Business Travel Show 2017

The Business Travel Show is at home again at Olympia London this Wednesday and Thursday, 22-23 February, with more than 7,700 attendees expected and 260 suppliers offering their wares.

All buyers visiting the event will receive a hand-shaped USB called a Poken which allows them to swap business cards digitally with suppliers, speakers and other buyers simply by tapping the hands together.

Poken Collect boards throughout the exhibition will enable users to download information straight to the USBs ready to be uploaded to their PCs when they return to their offices.

The 260-plus exhibitors at the show are from every area of business travel, including airlines, accommodation providers, ground transportation, technology providers and TMCs. Special areas will be devoted to international hotels, airlines and responsible travel.

Following a successful premiere in 2016, the Launchpad feature returns, with 14 young businesses showcasing game-changing business travel products and services, leading up to the second Business Travel Disrupt Awards at 16:00 on Wednesday 22 February.

The 2017 conference programme, sponsored by Sabre and Egencia, features more than 60 sessions with new topics including Brexit, personalisation and FinTech, plus issues that continue to challenge buyers such as data, distribution, the sharing economy, social media policy and duty of care.
