Toward the Singularity – AI (Artificial Interview) Our progression towards artificial intelligence based servicing is relentless. But when will we arrive and who will we be talking to when we do?

GBTA VDR Advocacy Update

Zeitgeist
Capturing the European Spirit of Our Times
As the UK is unhooked from the EU mothership we ask senior industry figures what the important facets of European political, social and legislative life are for business travel. You will decide who makes the most sense in a seemingly nonsensical world.

Flying Machine
Towards a 2020 Vision?
Out of the disruption of the turn of the century, an era of product and service development and emerging distribution strategies has been born. But are we headed for a post-commoditised utopia of joined-up thinking to create value, differentiation and the right user experience. Or are we headed for an ever-deeper confusion?
