Business Travel Show was launched in 1994 and brings together thousands of travel buyers and bookers across two days at Olympia London. It provides them with the knowledge and contacts to help create and develop successful travel programmes. Here’s what’s in store…
Business Travel Show 2020 is shining a spotlight on conscious travel, with a new wellness activation and conference content focused around traveller health, as well as ethically and socially responsible travel sourcing and management.
2020 show features include:
• NEW LAUNCH: The Wellness Retreat
The Wellness Retreat will be a haven of serenity on the show floor where visitors can take time out and relax while getting hands on with innovative wellness products and services designed to help them to look after their travellers better.
• NEW LAUNCH: The Business Travel Innovation Face-off
Kick-starting both days of the show – eight disruptors will present to a select audience of 150 buyers. After seven minutes of uninterrupted airtime, they each face a four-minute Q&A from the judges, and then the mics are handed over to the audience for a no holds barred grilling. Two winners will be announced – one selected by the judges and one by buyers – at the show on Thursday 27 February.
• Launchpad and Start-Up Pavilion
The Business Travel Launchpad celebrates its fifth anniversary and welcomes 10 new business travel and meetings start-ups, hoping to follow in the footsteps of industry success stories Taptrip and Troop Travel.
• Future Forum
The Future Forum theatre returns bigger and better for the 2020 Business Travel Show, providing the backdrop to the show’s keynotes and supplier sessions focusing on the future of corporate travel, plus first day networking drinks sponsored by Sabre.
