The Institute of Travel Management’s annual conference blasted off in Birmingham thanks to an injection of ‘rocket fuel’ from TripStax, who hosted the night cap drinks reception for delegates arriving on the eve of the event.

ITM is the UK & Ireland’s leading professional body for business travel buyers and suppliers and its annual conference is hugely respected for its high calibre programme of business sessions and networking events. Theme of this year’s conference was ‘Accelerate’ to reflect the business travel industry’s recovery post Covid. It was the first in person conference ITM has been able to organise for three years due to the pandemic

The TripStax team was on a mission to make sure guests experienced a memorable ‘lift off’ to the two-day conference by transforming the drinks reception venue with bold branding, rocket displays, bunting, balloons, and pink carpet. The buzz in the room was palpable as ITM members celebrated being back together with champagne, cocktails and canapes.

Two days later as the ITM conference neared its close, TripStax was front and centre again as sponsors of the final session entitled ‘Accelerating into The Future’ led by world renowned futurist Tom Cheesewright. In this mind-blowing session, Tom explained the structural shifts to work and life that are shaping the future, how travel and the value we place upon it has changed forever; and developments around AI and the metaverse are hurtling towards us all.
