Alcatel Lucent, Marc J. Busscher

Once again, BATM has given the Belgian Travel Managers an insight in a topic known to most of them: the dual job of arranging Travel and Meeting.
Through concise and clear presentations by experts, we learned of Strategic Meeting Management and other ways to both enhance meetings and decrease their cost.
A real life case was used to verify this. Also Virtual Travel  and other ways of non-physical meetings were brought into the arena. As said: this was another big one for BATM.
These meetings are one of the reasons each Travel Manager should become member.

Honeywell Corporate, Cindy Van der Elst

In this fast world of limited available time, every BATM forum provides me with relevant travel industry information and allows me to network in a quick and efficient way with peers and suppliers. All my personal & professional compliments, along with continued success in supporting the business travel market so well.

Having been a member since it was founded - first as a supplier and now as a corporate member - BATM has brought additional value to me. The regular meetings allow for excellent local networking while the collaboration with ACTE brings an international dimension and scope. The programmed topics are always actual and bring new insight and better understanding of issues. The local focus and understanding the BATM organization brings in this discussion delivers additional insight for Travel Managers and/or Purchasers. The attention on future, global or local developments are crucial in supporting us to run effective travel programs. All in all, it is great value and I look always forward to future meetings to share experiences and learn."

Inter-Ikea, Kjeld Krogh

Taking part in the BATM forums for several years already has given me a lot of inspiration and new ideas to improve my daily tasks. The subjects are always well chosen with inspiring speakers where the opportunity of fruitful dialog between the speaker and the audience is planned at the end and finally an interesting summing-up completes the session. In general the atmosphere is approaching and open (?and often even cheerful?) between not only the travel executives but also representatives from airlines and other suppliers where un-formal contacts open windows otherwise likely to remain closed. I enjoy that there is always the possibility to discuss and exchange experiences with other participants directly after each session. The hosting of the forums is always well chosen with easy access and parking facilities and not least a light but tasteful lunch to crown the event. Writing this I am already looking forward to the next forum.


"I am convinced BATM undoubtedly filled up a gap, by finally offering Belgian travel & meeting managers a unique platform for exchanging best practices, sharing experiences on specific projects and of course providing tremendous networking opportunities. Clearly BATM's permanent objective must be to get as many corporate travel & meeting managers as possible onboard, since the more we are, the better we'll get!"
