What is Connect Business Travel?

Connect Business Travel brings together Corporate Travel Executives with key suppliers for one-on-one appointments conducted in a reverse-style tradeshow format. What does that mean? It means that you get right down to business, no wasted time walking around a trade show floor or meeting with people that don’t fit your needs. This coupled with top notch relevant education makes it a can’t miss event. Sign up today to make serious business connections, learn best practices and catch up on the latest technology at Connect Business Travel. See our Safe and Clean event plan and our policy regarding vaccines.

 

 

 

Buyers

With Connect’s signature reverse-style trade show you can focus on the deal and not the navigation of a convention hall. No booth set up is necessary. We do all the work for you.
