Wade Jones, interim president, Travel Network, Sabre
Industry heads from Uber and Sabre will present the keynote addresses at the Business Travel Show, 22-23 February 2017, Olympia London. Speaking about the future of urban mobility and Industry 4.0 (the fourth industrial revolution), these true innovators of business travel will join over 175 speakers delivering 60 conference sessions.

Wade Jones, interim president, Travel Network, Sabre, said: “The Internet of Things is starting to affect environments of all kinds and by 2025, the economic impact could be as much as $11.1 trillion. Referred to as the Fourth Industrial Revolution, this is set to transform the travel experience as we know it – with many exciting consequences for travel buyers and travellers alike. My keynote will give a glimpse into a fully connected ‘smart’ travel journey and what this evolution will mean for the business travel industry.”  

David Chapple, Event Director, Business Travel Show, added: “It’s such a coup for us – and our visitors – to have not one, but two, keynote addresses at the show this year from travel and technology visionaries such as Wade and Travis – they will be packed full of inspirational advice and practical takeaways”  

The Business Travel Show conference programme has also received official accreditation from the UK CPD (Continuing Professional Development) Certification Service. CPD, as explained on its website, is "the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive".  

The Business Travel Show conference programme features more than 60+ high-end sessions, created by buyers for buyers and delivered by 175 industry experts with extensive industry experience. From Brexit, benchmarking and budgeting, to traveller risk, technology and TMCs, the Business Travel Show delivers the content buyers need to cut costs, buy better and futureproof your travel programme. The conference themes cover air/ground transport, accommodation, TMC, payment and service providers, traveller risk management, traveller management, technology data, careers, organisation and team management.
