Developers Head To The Perfect Trip DevCon To Tackle Business Travel Challenges

Stocks in this article: CNQR

BELLEVUE, Wash., Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Concur (NASDAQ: CNQR), the global leader in integrated travel and expense management, and TripIt call on the developer community to accelerate app development for the business travel market. On Oct. 2, the Perfect Trip DevCon 2013 will convene in San Francisco, bringing app developers, entrepreneurs and API providers together to focus on improving the business traveler and corporate travel buyer experience.


Developers will have the opportunity to hear from Tim O'Reilly and find out how they can leverage the Concur Open Platform and other travel API's to develop innovative solutions for the business travel ecosystem and how to reach business travelers and enterprise buyers with such applications.

"We are at the cusp of a golden era of software application development as developers find new ways to monetize the combination of big data, the cloud, and mobile devices," said Tim O'Reilly, founder and chief executive officer of O'Reilly Media. "One of the key success factors is an open framework for accessing big data; companies like Concur have taken steps to opening up their platform, giving developers the opportunity to drive the next wave of business travel apps."

According to the U.S. Travel Association, the U.S. business travel market is estimated to be $259 billion annually[i]. In the United States alone, 458 million business trips were logged in 2011[ii], providing a large need and opportunity to developers worldwide.

At The Perfect Trip DevCon, developers and entrepreneurs will showcase new apps and learn about APIs and tools to build apps for business travelers and corporate travel buyers, including Concur's audience of more than 20 million business travelers and 18,000 companies worldwide. Developers will also learn how to turn everyday business travel questions into potential money-making apps and services. The list of friction points for business travelers is long, which creates significant opportunities for developers to improve the business trip experience.
