managers and business travellers. The seminar's packed agenda includes an examination of changing market conditions and client needs, with
HRG's Director of Product Development, Paul Saggar, leading a discussion about how embracing technology can create new opportunities in
today's demanding climate.

management and control, superior service to travellers and, of course, maximum return on investment."

partners, such as HRG, and an insight from Microsoft as to where the future potential of technology may lead.
