The Guild of Travel Management Companies (GTMC) will hold its annual conference in Monaco in June this year. The venue is particularly significant as the organisation is celebrating its 50th anniversary and Monaco is a world leader as a business destination, as well as a tourist hotspot.

The two-day event will be held in Monte Carlo from June 4 to 6 in association with headline sponsor easyJet. High on the agenda will be the impact of Brexit on business travel, with Tim Montgomerie, from The Times, and economist Gerard Lyons due to speak.

A gala celebration will take place on the evening of June 5 to celebrate the GTMC’s anniversary. The programme for the second day will examine the future of the sector.

Paul Wait, CEO of GTMC said: “We’ll be using this year’s event not only to celebrate but also to review some of the biggest learnings from the last few decades and, more importantly, to discuss future trends.”

Mr Wait added, “We have invested in developing a programme for the conference that is not only reflective but thought-provoking with a focus on current trends and issues and we look forward to a debate-filled programme that I hope will influence the way we travel for business over the coming 50 years.”
