NATM, CORTAS, BATM and BUas launch
The Benelux Corporate Travel Symposium 2021
“Focus on the new reality”
The Dutch business travel associations NATM and CORTAS and their Belgian counterpart BATM will organize a corporate travel symposium in collaboration with the Breda University of applies sciences (BUas). The theme of the event is ‘Focus on the new reality’ and will take place on November 10 at Breda University.
The Dutch Association for Travel Management (NATM), the Corporate Travel Association (CORTAS) and the Belgium Association of Travel Management (BATM) organized their own annual business travel event prior to COVID19. The same applies for BUas, which traditionally organizes its business travel and aviation symposium in June. The regular (online) meetings of the individual business travel associations will continue to take place separately.
Collaboration by strengthening each other
|”To serve the interests of the traveling business community and its organizations in the Benelux, the travel management associations CORTAS, BATM and NATM join forces and organize a corporate travel management symposium for the Benelux in collaboration with BUas. At NATM we look forward with great enthusiasm to a full-day program with inspiring speakers, interaction and networking opportunities. The focus on the new reality travel management is facing will be addressed from the perspectives of all stakeholders.”
Odete Pimenta da Silva, managing director NATM
|“For the Belgium Association of Travel Management (BATM) it is important that we find new ways to provide our members with extra content and networking opportunities to support them in achieving their goals within their organizations. A joint event with CORTAS, NATM and BUas is therefore a great opportunity for us. Collaboration by strengthening each other is more important than ever before.”
Pascal Struyve, President BATM
|“In these unprecedented times it is essential to support each other and to join forces. That is why we organize this unique Symposium in cooperation with NATM, BATM and BUas. Education, knowledge sharing, and networking are important spearheads for the Corporate Travel Association (CORTAS). We therefore see these components as a guideline for this Benelux industry event. We look forward to the partnerships and to a great collaboration!”
Stephanie Smook, managing director CORTAS
|“We are pleased that the Breda University of applied sciences (BUas) will be the venue for a symposium, organized by different stakeholders from the business travel industry. It shows a fine and fruitful cooperation between education and the business travel industry.”
