The Italian Business Travel Community Event
BizTravel Forum was created in 2003 from a unique idea by the President of Uvet Group, Luca Patanè, at the time President of the Uvet American Express Global Business Travel. An occasion to meet, reflect, and discuss the industry with other professionals was missing in the business travel sector; an occasion that could create culture and become a valid reference point for companies and for market operators. Over the years, Biz Travel Forum became the catalysing event for Italian Business Travel Community, an event in the sector that each year opens the doors to the most important companies in the Italian market and to the most well-known operators in mobility, events and tourism. The objective is to meet, discuss, train, and further explore the most current topics related to travel management: from globalisation and the financial crisis to disintermediation, from rationalisation of processes to management of business trips, new technology, and mobility services, and from tax laws regarding travel expenses to self-booking tools without neglecting the new purchasing behaviour of business travellers.
The heart of BizTravel Forum is its rich program of events, with more than 20 meetings back-to-back over the course of the two days, bringing to life forums, seminars, workshops, and round tables; initiatives in which international experts, authoritative professionals from the sector, and executives from important companies or multinational corporations participate.
The highlight of the event is the traditional opening forum which, like an intense and stimulating talk show, tracks market trends, provides a complete overview of emerging trends in corporate travel and announces future challenges.
