At The Beat Live, Buyers. Beware.

Buyers can be a demanding, outspoken bunch. That's been plainly evident during The Buyer's Table convened during The Beat Live in the previous two years. This year in Miami, our longtime contributor Amon Cohen will serve as moderator and attempt to wrangle Westinghouse's Dan Cooper, Valerie Fender of Blackboard Inc. and, in encore appearances on this panel, The Advisory Board Company's Steven Mandelbaum and veteran buyer Maria Chevalier. Come hear what these savvy buyers have to say about travel technology, TMCs and other pressing topics.

It's a chance to hear the end-user perspective amid plenty of dialogue at The Beat Live from travel technology providers, industry observers, travel agency executives and many others.

The conference kicks off one week from today, so be sure to register here.
