Congratulations to GetThere and Sabre Virtual Meetings President Suzanne Neufang for making Buying Business Travel's "Hot List" of the Top 30 Influencers who matter the most in business travel. Suzanne joins this exclusive list alongside global leaders such as Sir Richard Branson and Google Co-Founder and CEO Larry Page.
With a positive outlook, the freshness of the calendar turn, and a questionable sense of humor, here are some resolutions for travel procurement professionals to consider for 2013.
What a year! We delivered new innovations, such as a new home page, new policy engine options, more expense integrations, and the industry's first integrated virtual meetings booking tool. You have achieved incredible savings, compliance and security-related goals.
As we all head toward a little time off and perhaps travel with family and friends, I'll send you off with my version of the holiday classic (minus the partridge in a pear tree).
A longtime GetThere client, WellPoint’s Cindy Heston is an established expert in the field of managing corporate travel. A recent article in the November 2012 issue of Travel Procurement illustrates the possibilities that GetThere can open up for programs with creative leadership and a technology-inclined travel management company.
The corporate travel world enjoys shiny new objects and storylines woven with possibilities just like any other industry. In an era of constant innovation, these conversations can spur different ideas and creative approaches to business challenges. The recent talk of an alternative corporate booking model fits neatly into the profile.
