The number of business travel managers with responsibility for group travel and/or meetings management rose from 58 to 63 per cent in 2016, according to the Business Travel Show’s annual buyer survey.

The annual report also found that the proportion of business travel managers adopting a structured approach has leapt from 38 to 60 per cent in the same period.

About 178 travel buyers took part in the seventh Business Travel Show annual survey in November 2016; 61 per cent of respondents worked in the UK and 37 per cent in continental Europe.

The Business Travel Show’s annual buyer survey has been measuring the convergence of the meetings and travel categories since 2010. The Business Travel Show, Europe’s largest specialised exhibition and conference bringing together more than 500 European travel and meetings professionals, takes place 22-23 February at Olympia London.
