Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Wednesday, 12 August 2009

Travelport GDS is to host a roundtable discussion at the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) Asia Pacific Education Conference in Singapore on August 13, 2009. The roundtable will look at the role of the GDSs in business travel.

Leading the session will be Travelports Kris Miller, Business Development Director, Asia Pacific. Miller is responsible for formulating and executing Travelports corporate engagement strategy.

In the past, this conference provided delegates with an overview of the industry and travel trends. With the global financial crisis impacting travel, the focus this year has changed significantly to help travel professionals and customers maximise their travel budgets and employ robust, cost saving technology and solutions, Miller said.

Travel management firms and corporate clients have varying degrees of understanding of what a GDS can provide, with much of it based on dated information and perceptions. Corporate engagement by Travelport has never been stronger as we look at ways for clients to buy and manage travel smarter and more competitively while at the same time maintaining the required high standards of care, safety and security of travellers within their respective organisations,

The roundtable session will provide an opportunity for delegates to assess and discuss the needs of managed travel programmes, including trip planning, fulfilment capabilities and cost analysis in addition to the various technology solutions available.

The ACTE Asia Pacific Education Conference is taking place at the Ritz-Carlton Millenia Singapore from August 12-13, 2009.
