At the recent Assist Travel event we were lucky to have Tae Lee, the founder and CEO of Travo talk to our delegates about the future of business travel and the millennial traveller. He covered a lot of interesting points and I thought it would be useful to share his video with you today. I just want to give you a bit more of an introduction to the video.. .here is what Tae covered in his session:
A new generation of business travellers are quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with. The Millennials, the generation of tech savvy digital natives currently in their twenties and early thirties, will account for nearly half of the workforce by 2020. In this session a true Millennial will look at how the travel industry is already gearing up for this new cohort. Tae will also look at how individual Assistants can prepare as increasingly their Executives travel habits and expectations start to change. So how should Assistants react to their Executives:
- Travelling more often
- Loving gadgets
- Increasing their expenses
- Spontaneous nature and
- Ease in voicing dissatisfaction
A bit more about Travo
Our Motto: “TIME IS MONEY”
We believe that time is money. Time can be exchanged for money by working, but it can also be spent curing a disease or spending time with your nine-month old son. Admins and travel planners spend way too much time planning and booking trips. Travellers dread planning their trips until the very last minute because it’s time consuming to not only find flights, hotels, and ground transport, but also to figure out if all the arrangements are timed correctly. It’s hard. TRAVO makes it easy.
Go play, invent, study, love. Let TRAVO do the hard work.
