Remember when I predicted we’d be hearing a lot more about the changing world of air travel search at GBTA? I wasn’t kidding. I am heading out to the conference on Sunday with the entire Carrying On crew, (and many others from Rearden Commerce), ready to talk with people about how companies can gain control and manage travel costs, while helping to improve employee productivity. I’m excited for GBTA, and look forward to the panels we’re participating in at the event.  Outside of booth 413, here’s where you can find us:

I and the other members of the GBTA Technology Committee will be sharing our air search insights during the Travel Technology 101 panel on August 22. Our panel will look at core technology functions, and how they fit together to help travelers shop, book, pay, change reservations, and get reimbursed. It’s interesting stuff, and I’ll be joined by some very interesting people from Deltek, Inc, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Tokyo Electron.

Also on Monday, my colleague Mike Uomoto will participate in the panel Mobile Travel Apps: What Works Now, What’s Coming Next, which will look at what types of travel apps work well with corporate programs and how these apps can be leveraged for better travel management.

Tony D. will re-emerge at GBTA, where he will moderate a panel on August 23: Best End-to-End Strategy: Evolution or Revolution.  He’s looking for some healthy debate among panelists from Concur, Data Basics, IBM and TRX.

And finally, for Tuesday, I’m truly excited to moderate the panel Travel Managers: Broader Influence, Higher Visibility.  Here we’ll discuss career pathing for travel managers. Come get inspired as panelists talk about how they’ve expanded their roles, and get inspired to progress your career.  I am especially excited to host Jocelyn Kung, CEO and Founder of The Kung Group who will lead us through her exclusive KOPI assessment which helps individuals measure their personal power and potential.  For those attending this session, Ms. Kung will also make her online assessment tool available free of charge (this is very cool)!

I look forward to meeting and reconnecting with you all at GBTA this weekend! You can find me at booth 413. And stay tuned because soon we’ll be giving you yet another reason to come visit our booth this year…
