Companies want reliable, effective and cost-effective business travel that meets legal and security requirements. Employees expect flexible mobility offerings that are available at all times. Everyone is looking for smart, interconnected mobility that is fit for the future and conserves resources. This is why this year, the ITB Business Travel Forum by VDR is focusing on the mega topics of digitalization, smart mobility and sustainability. Door-to-door solutions for urban mobility will be presented, how the bureaucratic monster of EU reporting obligations came about and how it can be tamed, which possibilities the use of NDC (New Distribution Capability) offers and how even small changes in company travel guidelines can have major effects on the environment.
