About the Smart, Safe, Sustainable Summit

Technology will take centre stage at the Smart, Safe, Sustainable Summit in London on July 9. More specifically, this annual flagship event will uncover why sourcing and booking accommodation has become so expensive and complicated, at a time when businesses are looking for ways to reduce costs and improve the overall travel experience.

The Great Consolidation

In particular the summit will explore how consolidating technology leads to smarter ways of booking. In today’s era of connectivity there’s no excuse for so many different layers, processes, fees and other hindrances. Corporate travel and mobility managers, as well as travel agencies and relocation companies, are invited to join us on July 9 to explore together the challenges around content, distribution, procurement and much more.
