Egencia Leads The Future Of Business Travel As It Celebrates 10 Years In The Marketplace

BELLEVUE, Washington, PARIS, LONDON and MUNICH, November 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Corporate travel arm of Expedia, Inc. powers a travel technology revolution to deliver superior growth and prepares for the next decade of leadership

Egencia®, the corporate travel division of Expedia, Inc. (NASADQ: EXPE), today kicked-off a company-wide celebration marking its 10 th year as one of the world's leading travel management companies while reconfirming the company's vision for the business travel marketplace in the next 10 years and beyond.

" November 2012 marks our first decade as a company , and what a decade it's been," said Rob Greyber, President, Egencia. "We are privileged to help millions of business travellers, to serve thousands of companies in countries around the world, and to partner with leading suppliers of air, hotel, car, and rail services.  Along the way, we've built a dynamic organisation that's changed how corporate travel is viewed and managed in every conceivable way. Today marks a major milestone, and it also presents an opportunity to look to the future to define our role in leading the transformation of our industry."

The rapid emergence of Egencia into the marketplace long dominated by traditional travel management companies fundamentally shifted how companies viewed their corporate travel programmes.  Prior to Egencia, business travel was largely booked by calling an agent on the phone and using paper tickets.  Egencia redefined that model by combining innovative technology with local travel agent support.  This allowed companies and travellers alike to rethink how they approach their travel programme and turn it into an asset within their organisation.

"We give our customers solutions that travellers want to use," said Greyber.  "Clients look at what's possible in consumer travel and ask "why not here?"  That's unique-combining the best elements of the Expedia family of leisure brands with a decade of understanding the complexity of corporate travel-it makes us exceptionally positioned to lead and deliver value for our customers everywhere."
