It’s clear the day-to-day responsibilities for Travel Managers are changing. It is becoming increasingly crucial that Travel Managers become masters of data: not just their own company’s travel data, but also industry knowledge of practices, trends and technology.

With cost savings taking front of mind, the Travel Manager’s role will evolve to encompass communication management, meeting management and even collaboration management.

Travel Managers will take responsibility for offering virtual solutions to employees. Whilst there is much value in person-to-person communication, virtual alternatives will determine the appropriate action for business engagements.
