Tech And Business Travel: Emerging Trends

Posted on: February 7th, 2014 by admin

trending nowTechnology now plays such a critical role in corporate travel that 50 percent of business travel managers say that they do most of their business online. This and other interesting trends were released in a recent survey by the Business Travel Show.

Tech vs Travel

More than half (60 percent) of all surveyed said that they already use technology based alternatives such a video conferencing as an alternative to travel. Technology is also helping travel managers to monitor and increase compliance, with just under one-third (31 percent) claiming to use online tools for these purposes.

“The impact that technology has had on the business travel industry over the last 20 years is indisputable thanks in the most part to the internet, which made it possible to book trips online,” said Business Travel Show event director David Chapple.

“These days technology impacts every touch point along the travel-buying process and the next task for buyers is learning how to utilize and integrate technology in a way that keeps travelers happy and compliant.”


The near future contains even more technological innovation and disruption of the travel management industry. Issues of note include a New Distribution Capability (the XML-based data transmission standard for communications between airlines and travel agents), more capable and integrated mobile apps, ever deeper and cost neutral Wi-Fi penetration in hotels and on airlines and gamification of many existing functions.
