Corporate travel in the U.S. has seen a steady resurgence over the past few years as the economy left the recession in the rear view mirror. Recently the conversation within the business travel industry has been dominated by changing consumer behavior and technological innovation. Travel policy, once dictatorial in nature, is morphing into a softer version of itself where travelers' behavior exerts more influence than ever. Their reliance on smartphones has resulted in mobile turning into the cornerstone of every strategy, T&E are intricately linked, and new concepts like Open Booking are gaining acceptance.
