Celebrating success at our annual conference

Celebrating success at our annual conference

Last weekend Travel Counsellors for Business hosted our biggest-ever annual conference, held at the Leonardo Tower Bridge, London. We were joined by over 100 corporate travel specialists, 30 support team colleagues, and valued supplier partners such as Emirates, Travelport, and Bedsonline, who came together to share personal stories and real-life experiences of how best to support clients.

The insightful day featured a packed schedule, spotlighting opportunities for corporate Travel Counsellors to nurture new business growth and take advantage of technology to create frictionless booking and travel experiences, whilst keeping hold of the human touch throughout. We also shared updates on the recent launches of two new platforms, myTC Online and myTC Insights, designed to enhance the client booking and reporting experience.

We were joined by two keynote speakers - media entrepreneur, podcaster, writer, and performer, Cally Beaton, followed by Eddie the Eagle who, amongst telling his personal story to success, drew upon the theme of having the determination and self-belief to take a leap of faith, in both business and in life.

Mel Quinn, Director of Corporate Travel at Travel Counsellors for Business, said: “Our Business Travel Conference offered the ideal opportunity for us to celebrate our achievements over the last 12 months, both as individuals and as a community, and share our strategy for the coming year, which will see Travel Counsellors for Business continue to support corporate travel entrepreneurs to take advantage of our technology platform and provide the very best booking and travel experiences for their clients. With corporate TCs working both individually or in teams, we remain focused on empowering our people to grow their corporate travel businesses, as well as consistently finding opportunities to show care, and champion the human touch in business travel.”

The conference follows a record-breaking period, with UK corporate sales reaching £20.6 million in May, up 14% on the previous year.
