Business Travel ROI
New Research Shows the Effect of Sustained Investment in Business Travel
Travel Effect’s The Role of Business Travel in the U.S. Economic Recovery Report Shows Positive Relationship Between Business Travel Spending and Corporate Profit
Distributed May 2013
Travel Effect’s new research report, The Role of Business Travel in the U.S. Economic Recovery, gives clear evidence that business travel drives corporate revenues and delivers profits to the bottom-line, even during the Great Recession and continuing economic recovery. The report builds on a 2009 study, The Return on Investment of U.S. Business Travel, which arrives at the similar conclusion that travel is a core component of a successful business strategy and curbing business travel can reduce a company's profits for years.
Business travel is a key part of corporate strategy, allowing companies the use of face-to-face meetings to win new customers, close new deals and develop high-performing talent. Further, the report finds that industries that increase spending on travel also increase profits, receiving a near triple return on profits for each dollar spent on business travel.
