The Future of Meetings and Events

During GBTA Convention 2017 in Boston, we had a dedicated space on the Expo to highlight innovative startups impacting the business travel space. Startup Bizly, for example, has developed a platform that enables travel professionals and event planners to easily book small meetings spaces.

Bizly CEO Ron Shah stopped by our Broadcast Studio to discuss how his company aims to eliminate the request-for-proposal (RFP) process, as well as the biggest trends facing the meetings and events industry. Ron stressed the importance of face-to-face meetings and envisioned the future of the industry as simplified offerings, where the customer knows exactly what they’re going to get without all the frustrations associated with booking a space.
