SME business travel agency strategy
The pandemic has resulted in many small and medium size enterprises losing exceptional talent that may never return. As our industry starts to recover, senior commercial resources are at a premium. The larger travel management companies will grow exponentially mainly through a series of merges and acquisitions and continued new client growth. In our experience, SME business travel agencies are facing an increasingly uphill road to compete for business with the larger business travel agencies. SME’s still have a competitive advantage though exceptional service and longevity of their front-line travel consultants, however with the loss of senior commercial talent and limitations on product investment, how does an SME business travel agency compete in the future? Here at Avenue5 Consulting we have experienced commercial travel management consulting resources who have deep expertise in business strategy, customer relationship management and sales and marketing. We can assess and review your entire organization or certain elements that require attention. Our team works on a project basis or time-limited outsource and is entirely personalized to your requirements.
