If you’ve got an interest in corporate travel, travel tech, or if you just want to see me in San Francisco on Oct 2. to Oct. 3, visit our TPG Lounge on Facebook for a chance to win one of four tickets to TRAVERSE — The Travel + Tech Conference by TripActions in San Francisco.

As the head of a miles-and-points site, I get asked a lot of questions, but most are based on an individual traveler’s needs.  However, credit card issuers continue to refine their products for businesses, and business owners are looking for more ways to travel smart. Over the last few years, I’ve been asked this question more and more: “What are the best solutions for businesses looking to earn rewards and optimize travel?”

In recent months, TPG has put more of a focus on addressing many small- and large-business concerns, and we continue to look at ways to create content tailored to business leaders. Next month, I’m dipping my toes further into the business-travel waters.

On Oct. 3, I’m joining the team at TripActions to lead a panel on loyalty and the business of travel at TRAVERSE 19, a travel and tech conference in San Francisco. In our session, we plan to cover recent trends in loyalty for business travel and argue the case for its continued value. We’re also going to work with travel managers to highlight corporate rates that still give travelers their status points.

In case you’ve never heard of TripActions, it’s one of the newest corporate travel-management platforms, and it aims to disrupt the way in which companies book and manage travel. The technology is clean and intuitive compared to what many are currently utilizing in the corporate travel space.

I’ve asked TripActions to give TPG readers a few free tickets to the TRAVERSE conference, so if you’ve got an interest in corporate travel, travel tech or if you just want to see me in San Francisco, visit our TPG Lounge on Facebook for a chance to win.  Entries must be received by 5 p.m. Eastern time on Sept. 25. See you in San Francisco!
