John Snyder spoke with us extensively about challenges in airline distribution. He also touched on BCD Travel’s efforts to grow access to hotel content, its relationship with Concur, how the TMC role will evolve, outsourcing, the TMC P&L, the Sabre SynXis data breach and more.
Snyder even dropped a little news about selling ancillary services through BCD’s mobile app. And he tipped his cap to competitor Carlson Wagonlit Travel. We’d like to offer our own (bowler) hat tip to Paul Tilstone of Festive Road for standing in as co-moderator.
Is there a more important travel service provider to large corporate, education and government organizations than travel management companies? Many would say no, and yet the role of the TMC is constantly challenged. New technology, supplier models and traveler demands complicate the already difficult task of meeting procurement’s focus on cost control.
To discuss these and other big-picture matters, we’ll welcome BCD Travel president and CEO John Snyder to this Teleconference series. With assistance from attendees and co-host Paul Tilstone of Festive Road, Jay Campbell will interview Snyder about all things travel management.
