“It’s New York!” The Association of Corporate Travel Executives today announced that its North American global conference will be held in New York City, on April 23 through April 25, 2017. Citing “Location… Location… Location…” ACTE’s Executive Director Greeley Koch said the association would be returning to New York City for a conference event that will redefine travel management techniques for the year and beyond.
“New York City is one of the most diverse cities in the world,” said Koch “The broad spectrum of corporate cultures and viewpoints in New York mirrors ACTE’s membership. The dialogue between participants and speakers, and the networking, will be incredible.” He added that easy access for participants from across the Americas and Europe ensures the global participation the industry expects from ACTE’s events.
The conference will be held at the New York Marriott Marquis, located in Times Square, where a special rates package has been negotiated.
How will this conference redefine travel management techniques?
“ACTE has a 28-year history of providing the stage to explore technological advancement, traveller collaboration, and the evolution of the travel manager’s role. Yet for all that, our conferences are about people — the people who travel and the people who make that travel possible. We recently released a study linking processes and policies to travellers’ performance. The New York conference agenda, and other ACTE events, will focus on ways people can work more effectively together,” said Koch.
The New York City conference will be included in the “Zero Registration” program, which eliminates event registration charges for qualified travel manager members. “This idea is slowly spreading to other groups and travel industry entities,” said Koch. “This is one more example of ACTE bringing about a long awaited change.”
