  • Closing Key-note - The End and Future of Managed Travel - A bold call for the end to the status quo of current travel management principles. That is where Scott Gillespie begins his presentation on the future of travel management. As one of the corporate travel industry's most innovative thought leaders, Scott will make a compelling case for managing travel in a markedly different manner. He begins with the diminishing returns of Managed Travel 1.0, then illustrates the inherent fallacy of optimised travel programmes. Scott presents not only Managed Travel 2.0, an alternative model, but also a host of new frontiers that must be explored by travel buyers and suppliers. Sure to be a thought-provoking session with lively debate.
