“CTW China is positioned as an event for the Chinese corporate travel market, by professionals from the local community. Our speakers are well-regarded corporate travel practitioners who are equipped with global best practices from having worked for top international organisations, and who have successfully localized their know-how while operating with the China market. Many of these speakers also hold C-level positions in their organisations.” commented Darren Ng, Managing Director of TTG Asia.
The show’s precision in targeting corporate travel professionals with responsibilities in China is also evidenced by its curated selection of the most relevant and trending topics. Topics range from cost savings via corporate travel & meeting cards, managing air and hotel programmes from a supplier perspective, strategic meetings management, navigating China’s legal landscape, managing business meetings, incentive travel and corporate travel holistically, to travel technology, curated case studies and a tailored presentation session that reveals the results of an industry survey.
Event co-organiser Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT), China has also highlighted the well-matched topics to speakers as one of the show’s unparalleled advantages. Albert Zhong, general manager of CWT China explained, “When it comes to managing air programme, suppliers such as Delta Air Lines and China Eastern Airlines will be on hand to provide first hand insights and tips, while the travel technology forum includes speakers from Ctrip Corporate Travel, Michelin (China) Investment and Flextronics International.” Zhong himself will also be revealing the results of a survey on travel management and meetings & events in China during his opening industry presentation.
CTW China will kick off on 14 April 2015 with a joint Opening Ceremony & Welcome Dinner with IT&CM China at the Shanghai Marriott Parkview.
