2021 Annual Travel Managers Report
This year, circumstances are anything but normal. While travel was halted in 2020, travel managers are hopeful about 2021. While we can’t predict when business travel will return in full, this report provides insight into how excited corporate travel managers are for a return to normality.
In this edition of Cvent’s Annual Corporate Travel Pulse-check signifies a change from the trends of the past year as the world starts to open up. Of course, these findings could change based on government guidelines and virus case statistics, but one thing is clear: safety, cleanliness, and social distancing are critical requirements for the resumption of business travel.
In this report, we’ll answer the following questions:
- Is budget per trip in 2021 expected to increase compared to 2019?
- Are rigorous health and safety protocols in hotels critical to help travelers feel safe?
- Will travel managers be more open to dual or dynamic rates in 2021 and will they request them in their 2022 negotiations?
