The best suppliers in business travel were recognised during the Nordic Business Travel Summit in Copenhagen last week with the Nordic Business Travel Awards 2019.
The winners of the Nordic Business Travel Awards 2019 by category were…
Best Travel Management Company (TMC)
Best Hotel Chain
Best Payment Provider for corporate travel management
Best Car Rental Company
Industry's best Code of Conduct
The Nordic Business Travel Awards were created in order to reward and acknowledge Best In Class among Nordic travel providers by the Nordic Bench Institute in co-operation with the Danish; Finnish; Norwegian and Swedish Business Travel Associations. In true Nordic style the independent assessment process is robust involving a survey among buyer members of the Nordic business travel associations to evaluate the various travel service providers their companies use.
Lotten Fowler of Swedish Business Travel Association commented:
‘The Nordic region is the 10th largest Business travel region in the world which means that we are heavy users of travel suppliers from all parts of the industry. The providers that ended up on the top 3 list and those that subsequently won deliver excellent support, not only to the all-important business travellers but also the corporate travel manager responsible for managing this spend.’
The prize ceremony was held at the annual "Nordic Business Travel Summit", which is a forum for buyers and providers in business travel to meet for education, networking and exchange of experiences. The Summit alternates between the four Nordic countries each year.
