There are limited places remaining for the next BBT Forum, which takes place at the Hallam Conference Centre in London’s Marylebone on Thursday, 8 November.

Topics on the day will cover key areas of interest to all travel buyers. One panel, titled “How to navigate the new landscape of travel procurement”, features Thomas Maynard, senior director, Advito; Anu Kuchibhotla, head of sourcing, EMEA, HRS; Julie Murphy, country sales manager, All Nippon Airways; and Marc Wise, global sales manager, Amadeus.

Meanwhile, buyers will also be able to hear from Adrian Parkes, the GMTC’s CEO, and Clare de Bono, head of product and innovation at Amadeus IT Group, during the “Distribution dynamics – plugging into the new supplier technologies” panel.

Wellbeing and mental health will also be covered on the day, which includes welcome refreshments, lunch and an evening reception.

There will also be ample networking opportunities throughout the day during several refreshment breaks.

BBT Forums, held in association with ACTE, do not feature formal presentations – there’s just open dialogue and two-way discussions.

Travel buyers, managers and procurement professionals can attend for a half day, or full, for free.
