Travel Leaders Corporate and Travel Leaders Associates have announced some positive numbers for business travel: New business travel accounts won during the first half of this year total more than $118.8 million, representing a year-over-year increase of nearly 60 percent.
Travel Leaders indicated that this is a conservative estimate given that the data is gathered through voluntary reporting of new business by both Travel Leaders Associates and Travel Leaders Corporate on a quarterly basis. Also, this does not include new business accounts won by any other Travel Leaders Group divisions or members.
While all Travel Leaders Associates are welcome to report the total annual dollar volume of new business travel accounts signed per quarter, the six-month totals include the voluntary reporting from a narrow group of Travel Leaders Associate agencies that focus a significant amount of their business on corporate travel.
