Sometimes the travel industry seems like it can move faster than a Boeing 787.
Today, a growing number of professionals from various backgrounds, such as human resources, procurement and finance take on the role of managing their organization’s travel. To help these professionals keep up with the fast-paced industry, Fox World Travel created the Travel Manager Institute.
The groundbreaking program teams up with Bradley Seitz, Chairman of Topaz International, and business travel expert, to offer courses on the intricacies of the travel industry. Course 201: Travel Management Best Practices will be offered in five cities throughout the U.S.
- Oshkosh, WI l April 17-18
- Chicago, IL l May 10-11
- Columbus, OH l June 7-8
- Oshkosh, WI l July 19-20
- San Francisco, CA l Sept 13-14
- Dallas/Austin, TX l Oct 23-24
The two-day course will provide a comprehensive view of how to build a successful travel program from the foundation, up, as well as an overview of where the industry is headed.
Course 201 is designed for beginning to intermediate travel managers, who may be in procurement, executive administration, customer service, human resources or finance.
Fox created the Travel Manager Institute in 2017 based on client feedback. The first round of classes took place in Minneapolis, MN, Indianapolis, IN, and Milwaukee, WI, and had an outstanding response. The attendees thought the ability to collaborate and benchmark with each other in such an engaging way during the course was icing on the cake.
