Measuring Your Travel Program – Self Assessment Tools

Please join us this month to participate in an interactive discussion with Kjarsten Philipsen regarding the Managed Travel Index and Sustainability Self-Assessment Tool from GBTA, in partnership with BCD Travel.

Would you like to identify how to strengthen your travel program and manage progress as your program evolves? If you are a supplier, this discussion will provide you with insight into corporate travel programs and how to better accommodate the needs of your existing and prospective clients. 

If you have already had experience with either of these tools and would like to share your success stories of improved operational effectiveness, please reach out to a member of our Board before the meeting so we can highlight your achievements!
