A Quality Metric for All!
In today’s world, we need to broaden the current scope that determines travel programme effectiveness from what is now measured. Based on findings from 2018 ACTE research, conducted in collaboration with BCD Travel, we have identified the need to have measurements that include components such as trip success rate, traveller friction, human resource information, etc. The entire industry will benefit from a quality metric that is more practical in use. In this session, YOU will have the opportunity to weigh in and take an active role in identifying and creating a universal quality metric the entire industry can use.

Ignite Presentation - Istanbul: Shaping the Future of Aviation
As a result of the strong and consistent development of G20 countries such as China, India, Russia, Indonesia,
and Turkey, the growth axis of the world has shifted from the West towards the East. As many industries
adapt to today’s rapidly changing market environment, a significant shift is occurring in aviation as well.
While this change process takes place in the aviation industry, Istanbul, which is already a natural hub with
its strategic geographic location, is turning into a global air transport hub. Thus, the aviation sector is expected
to provide even more added value to Turkey’s economic development going forward.
Serving as a natural bridge between east and west as well as north and south, Turkey provides important geopolitical
benefits while effectively offering access to 1.5 billion potential customers, thanks to its close proximity to
Europe, Eurasia, the Middle East, and North Africa, whose economies collectively amount to US$ 25 trillion.
