Article from BTNews 26 SEPTEMBER 2022

From BTN's new owner *

As Malcolm plans to use next week's newsletter to look back on his 50 years in travel, I wanted to use this slot this week to explain what will happen when Head for Points takes over Business Travel News from Monday 10 October writes Rob Burgess.

The good news is .... very little will happen.

You will continue to receive an email every Monday morning summarising the key UK business travel stories from the previous week.  The only difference is that, if you click through to read more, you will be taken to an article on www.headforpoints.com and not the BTN website.  Malcolm and I have always had a lot of crossover in the stories we choose to cover, so you shouldn't notice much difference in the business travel content.

In addition, there will be new sections covering flight, hotel and airport lounge reviews and the major UK travel loyalty stories of the week.

From Monday 10 October, your weekly newsletter will come from donotreply@headforpoints.com which you may want to whitelist / add to your contacts so that the email is not rejected.

The Business Travel News website will be accessible at www.btnews.co.uk so you will still be able to find historic BTN stories if necessary.

In November, Malcolm will launch 'Travel News Update', a new monthly travel look into the future with new air routes, hotels, road and rail plus innovative concepts plus the popular ON TOUR, CRUISING and MOTORING.  If someone wants to offer a monthly golf course review that might be considered. AND FINALLY is a must.  Please add Sharon.Ross@btnews.co.uk to your mailing

Head for Points will offer a link, along with a summary of the contents, in our weekly newsletter.

My team and I look forward to sending you your weekly dose of UK business travel news from 10 October.  You can contact me at rob@headforpoints.com at any time with any questions or queries.  If you work in travel PR, please add us to your distribution list if we are not already on it – with 25 million annual page views, primarily from frequent UK business travellers, we have a valuable readership which is otherwise hard to reach.

I look forward to reading Malcolm's reflections on his travel career next Monday, and wish him a happy and healthy (semi) retirement.

Can I wish Rob Burgess all the luck. Malcolm is a hard act to follow but Head for Points has been building up its pedigree with awards too. Will Malcolm have some words next week?
