Travel event

The Business Travel Show is launching a new one day event: the Responsible Travel Management Conference. The conference and networking event, on October 8 in London, will be free for security people and covers duty of care, sustainability and CSR (corporate social responsibility).

The conference at the NH Kensington Hotel is the first event to be held under Centaur Live’s new Business Travel IQ offering. Combining events, reports and insight, Business Travel IQ is being designed as a knowledge resource for business travel buying professionals.

The conference will cover the latest legislation, news and views from industry figures in panel discussions, case studies and workshops. Topics will include traveller training, tracking and wellbeing, risk and crisis management, selecting sustainable suppliers, travel alternatives and securing management buy-in.

Networking opportunities on the day will include post-event drinks, with peers and handpicked specialist suppliers. A small expo will run alongside the conference giving delegates relevant sourcing opportunities.

David Chapple, event director of Responsible Travel Management Conference, said: “Kidnapping, terrorism, natural disasters, illness and accidents are just some of a long list of very real dangers facing business travellers and expats while overseas and, in a world where more companies are globalising, security professionals are faced with new challenges on a daily basis for keeping their travellers safe and healthy. At the Responsible Management Conference delegates will develop a much deeper understanding of the risks and responsibilities that come with doing business in a changing global economy as well as how to create a more sustainable programme without increases in costs.”

Buyers who would like to apply for a free delegate pass can register online at www.businesstravel-IQ.com. A very limited number of supplier passes are also available to purchase – interested suppliers should contact sam.cande@centaur.co.uk.
