Travelport chief architect Mike Croucher has been lined up as a keynote speaker at the Gtmc’s annual overseas conference in Holland.

The event in Noordwijk on June 30-July 2 will see participants debate the future of the business travel sector under the theme ‘What’s next?’.

Long standing industry partner Travelport has further solidified a partnership with the business travel organisation ahead of the conference.

Gtmc CEO Adrian Parkes said: “As a very important industry partner of the Gtmc, we’re thrilled to cement our relationship further with Travelport and look forward to continuing our work together.

“As such a big player in the industry, it’s been invaluable to have Travelport support so many of our initiatives on such a regular basis.

“We’re pleased to have Mike join the keynote speaker line up at our overseas conference this year. His wealth of knowledge in the industry makes him an exciting addition to the programme.”

Croucher added: “Across industries we’re seeing the impact of ‘Business 4.0’ and feeling the effects of new technology and social change.

“This is especially true in travel as the digital era supports a new generation of constantly connected, experience seeking customers.

“We’ve all got to adapt to meet traveller needs and expectations and we’re looking forward to sharing our perspective on the innovations reshaping our industry with the expert Gtmc audience.”
