The value that travel management
brings is increasingly measured by improved processes and the optimisation of services across departments. With this integrated perspective, business travel is no longer simply in the hands of the purchasing department.
Multiple departments are involved
from Accounting and Finance, to IT, Human Resources and Communications. The buyer of travel services directs the processes and operates within a network of different stakeholders, whose needs must be met – ensuring employees commit to the company policy while keeping costs in mind is an ever more strategic and complex task.
The overview provided by the Corporate Lodging Forum (CLF) helps the decision maker to perform their role even more strategically while also providing detailed insights into current hot topics through a series of breakout sessions.
Established in 2013
The CLF was established in 2013 as a platform for open exchange, debate about business travel and meetings, and learning from the industry’s best. With events in key destinations around the world, the event supports travel managers with international as well as local remits.
