The African Business Travel Association (ABTA) confirmed that it will be hosting two events in Lagos, Nigeria and Luanda Angola later this month.

These events will bring together corporate travel buying clients as well as the leading Travel Agents, Travel Management Companies, Airlines, Hotels and Travel Suppliers to discuss business travel trends and challenges in the regions, as well as to share local and global best practice in corporate travel management.

Sessions will include advice and practical guidance on how companies can better manage and reduce business travel costs, the importance of developing good relationships with preferred TMC’s, Travel Agents and Suppliers, the role of intelligent Travel Data to reduce travel spend, and guidance from a global travel expert on what companies need to do to improve their image and professionalism in order to be more attractive to international clients.

“We are very excited to be visiting Luanda and Lagos again, and to host events that will give travel buyers, TMC’s, Travel Agents and Travel Suppliers key insights into how to tackle industry challenges,” says Monique Swart, ABTA Founder. “Luanda and Lagos have a lot of challenges to overcome within the business travel environment, but there are also incredible opportunities for companies willing to better understand what it is that they can be doing to deliver regional and global best practice.”
