Past Attendee Feedback

We asked Corporate Travel Managers (industry buyers) to "share your overall impressions of the conference" after attending last year's ACTE Global Corporate Travel Conference in Atlanta and here is what they said:


- "ACTE is where I choose to spend my
 money - that says it all!"
- "It is a conference that I make time for."
- "Amazingly polished, full of energy and excitement, but more than anything the conference projects a very professional
demeanor and professionalism where
corporate travel is the primary subject."
- "Simply Fantastic!"
- "Impressive in every way."
-"Excellent - focused - educational - time
well spent!"

- "I thought ACTE was a great conference
and I continue to gain new contacts
and insight as to driving my
organization forward. This has
 truly been impactful for me."

to get to during the 2.5 days, which
 is probably a good sign."
