ACTE and HRS’ Corporate Lodging Forum Join Forces to Enhance Hotel Education for Corporate Travel Executives

March 3, 2018 Association No Comments Email Email

ACTE Global(Association of Corporate Travel Executives), a prominent voice for business travellers worldwide, and Corporate Lodging Forum (CLF) by HRS, the world’s leading hotel end-to-end solutions provider, are partnering to develop content for ACTE’s five Global Summits in 2018. Beginning with ACTE’s Global Summit in New York City on April 29, CLF will coordinate and contribute to select lodging-focused education sessions.

Responding to growing demand from ACTE’s membership base for expanded education on the constantly evolving corporate hospitality arena, this partnership provides conference attendees with strategic insights to help optimise the way they source and provide lodging for business travellers. Sessions at ACTE Global Summits will touch upon a variety of topics, ranging from how to integrate alternative accommodations into a travel program, to the future of the hotel sourcing processes and new incremental savings opportunities, to the application of game-changing technology like virtual payments. These sessions will support the “Sleep Spoke” of ACTE’s educational framework, helping its members build a holistic lodging programme.

After the New York event in April, additional ACTE Global Summits offering dedicated Sleep Spoke education include:

Singapore Global Summit                               July 17-18

Paris Global Summit                                       October 14-16

Montreal Global Summit                                 November 18-20

Sydney Global Summit                                   December

The first 2018 HRS Corporate Lodging Forums of 2018 will take place in Berlin (March 6) and Milan (March 20). Other dates include:

Madrid                                                             April 24

“ACTE Global is committed to helping its members become travel programme CEOs who provide indispensable value to their organisations,” said Jill Jefferis, Director of Global Engagement for ACTE. “With accommodations being a key aspect of the business traveller experience, we’re excited to tap HRS’s expertise and CLF’s depth of offerings to help Summit attendees broaden their knowledge of the emerging issues affecting their corporate travel programmes, as well as bringing ACTE global research into CLF.”

“ACTE and HRS share the same objectives of educating travel buyers on the complex hospitality market, helping them bring competitive advantage to their organisations, and positioning travel executives as strategic partners to the C-suite,” said Carole Poillerat, Executive Director, Industry Relations & Corporate Lodging Forum for HRS. “Our organisations are naturally aligned to the goal of propelling corporate travel executives into the future, and we’re excited to launch this initiative.”
