Biz Travel Forum BTF
Category Business travel
Description BizTravel Forum was born in 2003 from an original idea, that of Luca Patanè, the President of the Uvet Group. In the field of business travel, there was a lack of an opportunity for meeting, reflection, and debate that would create culture and become a valuable reference point for companies and market operators.
Thus, within the SMAU Fair, not entirely by chance, the long adventure of BizTravel Forum began. Over the years, this event has been able to reinvent itself and adapt to the continuous evolutions in the sector, anticipating trends and providing interesting insights into the scenarios of Business Travel in Italy.
Over the years, BizTravel Forum has become the catalyst event for the Italian Business Travel Community, the industry event that opens its doors every year to the most important companies in the Italian market and the most well-known players in Mobility, Events, and Tourism, with a single goal: to meet, exchange ideas, learn, and delve into the most current topics in travel management, from globalization and economic crises to disintermediation, from streamlining travel management processes to new technologies and mobility services, from tax regulations related to business travel to self-booking tools or the new purchasing behaviors of business travelers, to name just a few topics.
The heart of BizTravel Forum is the rich schedule of content that unfolds through Forums, Seminars, Workshops, and Roundtable discussions; initiatives that feature the participation of international experts, authoritative industry professionals, and managers from major companies or multinational corporations. Each year, industry journalists, economic publications, and travel agents from the Uvet Network or independent agencies also attend the event.
The highlight of the event is the traditional Opening Forum, which, with its intense and stimulating talk show, tracks market trends, provides a comprehensive overview of emerging trends in corporate travel, and announces future challenges.
Among the participants of BizTravel Forum, you will find the most important industry operators as Sponsors, Partners, and Speakers. It attracts a large, attentive, and knowledgeable audience. High attendance, rich content, and quality speakers are the winning cards of the event. Thanks to BizTravel Forum, a new way of conceiving business travel has emerged – an event that has reinvented itself, evolving from a simple trade show into a cornerstone event for the business travel community. It has effectively restored visibility to the world of business travel, fostered corporate culture, and significantly contributed to the maturation of the entire industry
