The Future of Business Travel
For too long, business customers have been saddled with sky high fees, inflexible and inefficient products. Avi has addressed this by building a new category for enterprise travel: ‘a one stop shop’ with a core mission to simplify business travel and management for travelers and those who book for them. Avi will discuss how TravelPerk was built to meet the increasing need for technological solutions and making possible the shift from traditional agents to a self-booking tool.
