The Company Dime Buyers Council Workshop, June 2024

In the world of corporate travel industry events, this is genuinely new. It’s the Buyers Council in person, redux! (You can only do it a second time once.)

We’ll meet for a welcome dinner on June 5, 2024 before a full day of intimate, problem-solving discussions on the 6th. No elephants in this room! The Workshop is open at no additional cost to travel buyers/managers who subscribe to Check out the agenda below and RSVP for the Workshop on the private Council page here.

We’ll have sessions with our usual Buyers Council conference call format, except in person! These off-the-record chats have proven invaluable to The Company Dime as we organize our coverage. Attendance numbers over the last couple years show members are getting a lot out of them, too.

We’ll also have candid, brilliant guest executives — not to speak from the stage, but to converse among the group. We’re excited to welcome Sabre CEO Kurt Ekert, Marriott SVP of global sales Tammy Routh and SAP Concur Travel president Charlie Sultan.

There is no cost to participate. There are no sponsors.

The Airlines Reporting Corporation is our host — thank you ARC!
