Professional Development Session

Business Travel Trends: Spending Forecast, Dynamic Pricing and the Future of Hotel Technology

Our professional education session covers three topics, all of which are designed to educate you about the future of the business travel industry. The first topic details the business travel spending forecast for the United States, including the hotel price forecast for 2016, and how you can learn to predict the future based on various economic indicators. The second topic addresses dynamic pricing for hotels, including how many companies are using it, why or why not, and what the benefits are. The last topic investigates desired hotel technologies of the future from trip planning to check-out. All three of these topics are based on recent research conducted by the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) and will make you a smarter and more strategic travel professional.
