ACTE Paris Education Forum

Mercredi 7 Juin 2017

Education will build upon the travel manager as the supporting hub, with each of the spokes representing the various components that must come together in a unified fashion for a successful travel programme. Key focus areas within each of these spokes will surround the evolving expectations and needs of the modern business traveller, and support to the travel managers with both today's challenges and tomorrow's future:

• We encourage participation of corporate travel professionals, buyers and suppliers and both members and non-members

• If your company would like to sponsor this event and gain valuable marketing exposure, please contact europe@acte.org.
