It is a clear trend that corporations are embracing the idea of consolidation more than ever.

The main drivers for consolidation are:

  • Increased corporate focus on cost reduction.

  • Greater transparency and corporate governance

The objectives of the BATM-ACTE Educational forum is to gain insight and debate on how creating multi national consolidated platforms for the modern age.

  • Why would you do this?
  • What are the options to gain consistency (card, TMC, GDS, OBT)?
  • How to achieve world class data?
  • Distribution – how to get the right content globally?
  • How to address leakage?
  • What are the Cultural considerations of a multinational program?
  • How to manage the governance?


We look forward welcoming you!
