Polls Close This Week To Vote For Your Favorite Keynote Pitch At The Beat Live

The polls are still open to help The Beat determine one keynote speaker at The Beat Live and select the recipients of our annual Readers' Choice awards.

Each year, we ask subscribers to identify the most admired technology company, travel management company, airline, payment company, hotel brand and car rental brand. We also ask subscribers to select one keynote speaker who will present his or her proposed address at The Beat Live. You can read all of this year's keynote pitches here.

Please take a couple of minutes to vote on both here before we close the polls this Friday, June 28.

The agenda for our 12th annual event, being held in New York from Sept. 17 to Sept. 19, is taking shape: Farelogix CEO Jim Davidson will be there to discuss a once improbable merger with Sabre; CWT CEO Kurt Ekert will take The Hot Seat to field questions from the audience; JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes will join us for a discussion; and SAP Concur president Jim Lucier will sit for an on-stage interview five years to the day after SAP announced its Concur acquisition.
