Business travel spend globally is set to reach $1.6 trillion in 2020. It means a quantum jump in the number of people traveling for work.
Technology is keeping pace with this trend and we can now choose from a wide range of options to stay connected and manage our business trips, for example mobile apps, to ensure the experience is productive and stress-free.
