5 Reasons to Attend TRAVERSE 20

We are delighted that more than 1,000 leaders across travel, procurement and finance departments have already signed up to join us at TRAVERSE 20, the online travel and expense summit, taking place October 6. While we’ll be the first to say that nothing beats meeting up in-person, TRAVERSE 20 will be the next best thing, with expert advice from T&E leaders, insights from top companies, and hands-on approaches for today’s biggest challenges--all available in one day of virtual connections.

Here are a few more great reasons why you and your colleagues should not miss this event:

1. Hear from The Points Guy Brian Kelly and Other Industry Luminaries

Listen to thoughts on the latest on payments, T&E and corporate cards in a keynote from Brian Kelly, founder and CEO of The Points Guy (TPG). As the preeminent voice when it comes to loyalty programs, credit cards and travel, Brian will offer his unique perspective on the many ways in which modern technology is dramatically improving the experience for finance teams and road warriors. Brian’s session at TRAVERSE 19 was standing room only, so fortunately at TRAVERSE 20 you are guaranteed a front-row seat from your own home or office. In addition to Brian, you’ll get to hear from Caroline Strachan of Festive Road, Jim Lundy of Aragon Research, and many more.

2. Learn Travel & Expense Best Practices from Industry Thought Leaders

At TRAVERSE 20, you will walk away with new approaches and ideas for building your travel and expense processes and programs for the different work environment we’ll see in 2021. This T&E summit brings together finance and travel industry thought leaders from Ancestry, WeWork, Zendesk, and more. TRAVERSE attendees will get access to sessions and breakouts exploring topics such as:

  • Mapping your organization’s path to business and economic recovery
  • Getting your company back to business travel safely and cost-effectively
  • Managing unused tickets and waivers to ensure no travel budget goes to waste
  • Hearing the latest in airline and hotel safety protocols to protect your travelers
  • And more on making the shift to modern T&E management to control costs and save money

3. Get a Sneak Peek at the Latest in Business Travel Tech

It’s no secret that corporate travel and expense management technologies are transforming businesses every day. To remain on the cutting edge of business, it’s critical that leaders stay up to date with the latest technology trends and developments.

Since the start of COVID-19, TripActions has innovated rapidly with new features around duty of care, risk assessment, and expense management--not to mention launching new inventory and partnerships. At TRAVERSE 20 you’ll get a close-up look at how you can leverage these technologies to give your organization a strong foundation for business and economic recovery. Plus, you’ll get a first look at what’s coming for the TripActions Travel and TripActions Liquid™ platforms.

And, if that’s not enough, you’ll also get to connect with our sponsors: American Airlines, United Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Radisson Hotels, Enterprise Holdings, Sabre, Southwest Airlines, Wyndham, Trvl Porter, Chorus.ai, G2, Ombud, TinyPulse.

4. It’s Complimentary--What Could Be Better?

You have to admit--the price is right! We’ve made TRAVERSE 20 free this year to help support the exchange of knowledge and ideas, as well as the professional networking that all of us need right now. While we will certainly miss seeing your smiling faces in person, we think you’ll find this event so compelling that by the end of it you’ll be ready to register for TRAVERSE 21, which we look forward to hosting in person next fall. Check out videos from our last in-person conference TRAVERSE 19 to see why it’s worth attending.

5. It’s Online--What Could Be More Convenient?

TRAVERSE 20 will be packed with industry experts, road warriors, and corporate travel leaders looking to connect, chat, and collaborate--providing access to thought leaders you might not otherwise get to see. To deliver the best possible experience for both travelers and their organizations at this event, the TripActions Community will offer an online forum for TRAVERSE 20 attendees to network with some of the industry’s finest. Not to mention some amazing travel give-aways -- flights, luggage and more.

These are just a few reasons why TRAVERSE 20 is this year’s can’t-miss event for travel and expense management. Register today to experience everything this conference has to offer.
