In the last ABTN analysis (RIP: the traditional corporate travel policy?), it was suggested that the days of the traditional, mandated travel policy may be numbered. This was based on a growing feeling that the current model was beginning to outlive its time with several factors were forcing change. These were generational and evolutionary but both were driven by rapidly advancing technology.
But if old-style travel policy is “dying” – as one leading industry figure put it – then the obvious next question is what will take its place?
