EIBTM closes in

With EIBTM, Barcelona, now only two weeks away the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) has announced a programme of four education sessions to extend the show profile beyond the meetings and events industry to incorporate the world of business travel.

Moderated by ACTE Board of Directors member Albert Pozo, VP Global Customer & IT Services for Amadeus, Tuesday’s Education Programme will highlight “Travel Technologies:  Now and the Future”. 

Featuring speakers Dean Forbes, Chief Executive Officer of KDS, and Glenn Wastyn, President and CEO of Global Videoconferencing Network NV, this session will explore the technologies that are shaping today’s marketplace.  

Also moderated by Pozo, “Marriage of Meetings and Business Travel Buying” will explain that more and more companies are leveraging the procurement synergies for meetings and business travel.  Experts Antonio Perea, Compras y ContratacionesGenerales, Cepsa, and Lotten Welinder, Manager, Group Meetings & Travel for IKEA, will bring together two points of view.

Wednesday, 28 November, will introduce two brand new ACTE sessions.  Rana Walker, Social Media Evangelist and Industry Consultant for ACTE Special Projects, will lead “Social Media in MICE and Business Travel” whilst “Business Travel Trends” features Claudia Unger, Director of Research and Intelligence at BCD Travel, and Ute Asmus, Global Research Manager at AirPlus. www.eibtm.com
