TravelPerk joins the BTA
Tuesday 18th October 2022: The Business Travel Association (BTA) has announced today that it has welcomed its newest member TravelPerk, a business travel management platform.
TravelPerk’s all-in-one platform gives travelers the freedom they want whilst providing companies with the control they need. TravelPerk has the world’s most extensive travel inventory alongside powerful management features, 24/7 customer support, state-of-the-art technology, and consumer-grade design, all of which are enabling companies and organisations worldwide such as Wise, Revolut and Farfetch. In July 2021, TravelPerk acquired Click Travel and grew its presence across the UK by adding to its teams in London, Birmingham, and Edinburgh.
TravelPerk will support the BTA to deepen its understanding of how the future of business travel is changing, particularly to reflect new working arrangements such as hybrid or remote working, as well as uncovering attitudes toward sustainable travel.
As members of the BTA, TravelPerk will become a key participant in important conversations shaping the business travel industry. It will share best practices and use its expertise to shape the future of the business travel industry in an increasingly distributed world.
Clive Wratten, Chief Executive of The Business Travel Association commented, “We are excited to welcome TravelPerk to our growing network of travel management companies and business travel service providers. With their experience and insight into the corporate travel market, and specifically their strength in technology both here in the UK and globally, we look forward to working with them to share knowledge and continue to demonstrate the value of business travel to their clients and the wider business community.”
Vicki Williams, UKI Country Manager at TravelPerk, added, “The BTA is a trusted organisation that continues to be an ambassador for business travel, educating and lobbying government on behalf of UK travellers and businesses. Collaboration with our industry colleagues is crucial to help shape and drive the future of our industry. Our membership coincides with exciting times at TravelPerk as we continue to enhance services and products to our ever-growing client base in the UK and help our customers globally connect in real life, in the most enjoyable and sustainable way."
