Issue 57

Jul/Aug 2012

Welcome to the July/August 2012 issue of Buying Business Travel.

In this issue we look at doing business in West Africa, the value of traveller wellbeing, RFPs, global airport developments and how gamification can drive compliance.
Also in this issue: experts predict the future of the travel buyer’s role; a guide to the best online booking tools; and we report from the season’s major industry conferences.
Interviews: we talk to the new CEO at Oman Air, a senior travel buyer at Ford Motor Company and HRG chief executive David Radcliffe.
New for this issue are product reviews, and an expanded MICE destinations section  – including Singapore and Jordan. Plus of course we bring you all the regulars: expert advice, news, interviews, analysis and more.
I hope you find the issue informative and engaging – as always, your feedback is welcome: contact me at
