From April 14-16, speakers from more than 20 of the world’s top brands will impart corporate travel insights and knowledge at the first-ever CTW China.
These speakers come from companies such as Apple China, Carlson Wagonlit Trave (CWT), China, Ctrip Corporate Travel, Delta Air Lines, Lilly China, Man Diesel & Turbo, Michelin (China) Investment, Pfizer Global Procurement China, Siemens China, Standard Chartered Bank China and Tetra Pak China Cluster.
More than 200 international and local corporate travel industry players are expected to attend the three-day event that includes business appointments and an array of sponsored networking luncheons, dinners, coffee breaks and cocktails by companies including Airplus International China, Etihad Airways and Frasers Hospitality, as part of its comprehensive program.
“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 organizations, 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 organizations,” commented Darren Ng, managing director, 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 programs 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-organizer 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 program, 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 with a joint Opening Ceremony & Welcome Dinner with IT&CM China at the Shanghai Marriott Parkview.
