Daniel Price, CEO & Co-Founder, Jyrney

Jack Dow, Founder and Ceo, Grapevine 

“It really means a lot to us, and it’s great recognition of the hard work the team has put in over the past year and a half. It also highlights the increasing recognition of the part technology can play, not just in the recovery from a very challenging 18 months, but also in reshaping the future of travel, providing consumer-grade experiences, which are long overdue in the industry”

Ron Shah, CEO, Bizly

FAQs - what companies ask before they book

What makes Business Travel Show Europe different from other trade events?

So many things, but if we had to pick our top ones, they would be:
  • Presented by the BTN Group, who have been part of the industry for over 37 years and are a team that truly understands the industry.
  • The show itself has been running for over 28 years, and it’s lasted so long because we know what we’re doing
  • The only event with a fully qualified buyer audience. Every buyer who registers is checked and vetted by our team.
  • Our hosted buyer programme – the first in the industry - brings travel buyers from the UK and Europe to the event, offering complimentary accommodation and a host of networking to maximise buyers’ time and enjoyment.
