The Beat's core product is an industry-leading, email "travel business newsletter" about business travel distribution and technology. The Beat is published as news happens, 49 weeks a year. Its email newsletter audience has grown to more than 10,000 since its launch on August 2, 2004 with 35 readers.
This website is The Beat's companion portal for news and opinion including multiple blogs by The BTN Group personnel and industry leaders. This site also houses the keyword-searchable news archive for both free and premium content.
In 2015, we will hold the eighth-annual version of The Beat Live, a travel business conference, which is an edgy and educational forum taken from the "pages" of The Beat.
The BTN Group, which also publishes Business Travel News and Travel Procurement magazine, is part of Northstar Travel Media.
