At TripActions, we believe being there in person is powerful, which is why we’re thrilled to announce the inaugural TRAVERSE Conference on October 2-3, 2019 at The Midway in San Francisco, CA. We’re bringing together industry thought leaders and travel managers, as well as hosting Captain “Sully” Sullenberger — known best for the “Miracle on the Hudson,” safely landing US Airways Flight 1549 and saving all 155 people aboard — as keynote speaker to kick off the conference.
This travel and tech festival will highlight the latest in business travel innovation for companies and their travelers. Attendees will have access to thought leadership keynote sessions, expert-led panels, workshops, and breakout sessions to gain the insights, resources, and relationships they need to be on the cutting edge of business travel.
“We’re excited to have leading finance, procurement and travel program leaders join us at TRAVERSE 19 to dive deep into the challenges—and more importantly the solutions—for dramatically improving the antiquated product, service, and experience of the $1.5T business travel industry,” said Ariel Cohen, co-founder and CEO, TripActions. “It’s time to come together to uncover the technology, insights, and best practices that will deliver a far better experience for enterprises and their travelers than the status quo and hopelessness of using the same outdated and frustrating corporate travel platforms they’ve always used.”
TRAVERSE 19 will explore critical topics for corporate travel, finance, and procurement leaders, including:
