Carlson Wagonlit Travel has launched an industry education program, CWT Travel
Perspective, a series of events for existing and prospective clients to gain
critical insight into key business travel trends, challenges and opportunities.
The next program in the series, Perspective Meetings Management, is May 16 in Dallas and will cover
topics on meetings trends and opportunities, global consolidation, technology,
supplier leverage and contracts. The first event in the Travel Perspective
series was held in February in San
Francisco and covered the Asia Pacific marketplace. The
one-day course included presentations by CWT general managers from the Asia
Pacific region, and interactive breakout discussions on the state of business
travel in key countries including China,
Japan, India and Australia. The CWT Travel
Perspective education series will continue with three additional programs
scheduled over the course of 2006. Future topics include the Meetings
Management course on May 16 in Dallas; Europe, Middle
East and Africa on Sept. 26 in Boston; and
Safety and Security on Nov. 14 in New
York City. Due to attendee response and the high
demand for insight into the Asia Pacific region, CWT is considering repeating
the Perspective Asia Pacific travel session in another city later this year.
