CTF, organised by TTG Events and Carlson Wagonlit Travel (CWT) China, took place on November 1 at the Grand Mercure Beijing Central. The full-day educational forum covered topics on travel and expense, traveller satisfaction, data analytics and security, and explored the rapid growth of the China’s business travel market and the potential of the Chinese market at international levels.

The forum also provided an opportunity to connect with fellow industry professionals and share tips and best practices with their peers within China’s massive business travel community. Over 50 delegates with corporate travel responsibilities attended from companies offering the chance to interact with and learn from some of the foremost experts in the industry.

Up-keeping the importance of face-to-face relationship-building, participating suppliers got to mingle with coveted corporate travel buyers on the ground and brainstorm ideas, hear first-hand their successes, challenges, and pain-points. In a bid to bring China’s massive community even closer together, CTF is part of TTG’s and CWT’s engagement efforts of nurturing professional competencies and forging broader networks that will culminate in March 2018 with CTW China.

Attendees were given a preview of the informative discussions and networking opportunities they can expect to see at the Corporate Travel World China 2018 conference held in Shanghai on March 20-22. The event will be hosted by Shanghai Exhibition & Convention Center for International Sourcing and by JW Marriott Hotel Shanghai Changfeng Park.
