Travel management companies are offering customers all the airfares and optional services an airline can muster. Tech firms are facilitating it. The economics make room for all parties. Even corporate buyers have returned to their day jobs.
This is not 2011.
At some point, though, one would think optional services will be available. So what will that look like? How will it change things? At The Beat Live
Sept. 19-21, we'll put aside the day's clashes and imagine the other side. Former airline distribution executive Al Lenza
joins current airline distribution executive Graham Wareham
of Air Canada, United merchandizing strategy director Maria Walter
and Airline Information co-founder Roger Williams
to discuss The Future Of Airline Merchandizing in the corporate market.
