January Chapter Meeting

Thursday, January 18th from 12:00 noon to 2:00 p.m.

Le Méridien - 1421 Arch Street, Philadelphia, PA 19102

Travel Trends and Predictions for 2018

What will happen in the travel industry this year?

In our new world of uncertainty, what can we expect in the corporate travel industry in 2018?  Will it be full of surprises or will we quietly coast along with little drama?

In a provocative presentation, Bradley Seitz, CEO of Topaz International and Founding Partner of Agilis, will look at the trends from the past and see what will shape corporate travel in the future.  How will Artificial Intelligence effect corporate travel?  Is self booking a dinosaur that is about to go extinct?  Will we agree that we really should all just stop filling out expense reports?

Our industry is being shaped by individuals selling the new flavor of the day when in fact the ideals of business travel have not changed that much in 30 years.  Getting back to basics and looking at the true value of travel will allow you to shape your own views and trends for the future when you look at what shapes travel and then what shapes the future.

We hope to see you on January 18th for a lunch time thinking session on the future.
