RTE acquires Business Travel Market
Reed Travel Exhibitions (RTE) announced the acquisition of Business Travel Market (BTM), the annual corporate travel conference and exhibition held at Londonís ExCeL, for an undisclosed sum. Launched in 2009 by Paul Robin, BTM was the first event serving the corporate travel sector to successfully accommodate fully hosted key buyers from all over Europe. The event has doubled in size since the first show, and has enjoyed consistent support through key players in the business travel industry. GTMC Chief Executive, Anne Godfrey, immediate past President of ACTE, Chris Crowley (BCD Travel), Qatar Airways' Country Manager UK & Ireland Richard Oliver, Eurostar's Head of Global Sales Darren Williams and Julia Surry from Airplus International all join the BTM Advisory Board. Crowley states "In only three years BTM has established itself as a growing and important annual industry event. Both BCD Travel and ACTE have strong partnerships with BTM, so I am delighted to be part of BTM's Advisory Board involved in the event's further development."
