Issue 60

January/February 2013

Welcome to the January/February 2013 issue of Buying Business Travel.

This issue sees the return of the Hotlist – 30 top influencers who are driving change in business travel. Changes for 2013 in BBT include a new section looking at the working relationship between a buyer and their TMC account manager.

Plus there’s a new regular travel-buyer Q&A. In this issue we investigate the controversial ‘Managed Travel 2.0’ concept of open booking, and untangle the war of words over EU emissions trading. We ask the experts for their predictions for 2013, explore key business destinations in China and examine travel in the oil and gas sector.

We report from the industry’s major conferences and events, plus we bring you all the regulars: news, views and reviews, analysis, expert advice and more.
