Business travel not only involves the procurement department, but also stakeholders from Finance, IT, Human Resources, Safety, and Communication – and of course the business traveler.
The travel buyer therefore finds him or herself in the center playing the role of a conductor. The task at hand: manage the wants, needs and goals of the entire stakeholder network and roll out an optimal procurement strategy. A challenge to say the least.
To support them in this strategic mission, HRS has developed a unique exchange platform, and for the very first time to bring all corporate ecosystem stakeholders together to focus on the subject of business travel with new speaker profiles. The conference series will take place in eight cities throughout 2017: Berlin, Milan, Shanghai, Tokyo, Warsaw, London, São Paulo and Paris. They will allow HRS’ international and local clients and prospects to better comprehend the whole set of challenges related to business travel in each specific market for global buyers to give their local team access to a wealth of content and an exceptional exchange platform.
We are looking forward to meeting you at one of the upcoming CLF events.
