"ACTE has a 25-year reputation for a contemporary and edgy approach to travel management education programs," says Greeley Koch, ACTE's executive director. "That reputation is made possible through the vision and insight of companies like Egencia, an Executive Forum Sponsor in 2013. I urge our members to return that support in the spirit of partnership."

ACTE Executive Forums, sponsored in part by Egencia, will take place on Sept. 24 in Minneapolis; Oct. 9 in Washington, D.C.; Nov. 6 in New York City; and Dec. 5 in Los Angeles, and will feature industry professionals who will share best practices and the latest information on topics ranging from travel technology, to duty of care, to program evaluation, as well as how to engage business travelers and build online communities with social media.

"Industry forums like those from ACTE provide greater clarity around issues facing corporate travel managers and buyers while offering excellent networking opportunities," says Mark Hollyhead, Egencia's senior vice president, Americas. "Egencia and our clients benefit from the knowledge sharing at these educational events, which, in turn helps guide the technology and service solutions we provide to corporations and business travelers around the world."

Upcoming forums include:

Minneapolis – this forum will be held on Sept. 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. CDT at the Minneapolis Marriot City Center, and will feature two industry roundtable discussions and two educational sessions titled "The Value of Data" and "Communicating Duty of Care."
