Tools don’t make the worker, but having seamless, personalized digitized services can make your life a whole lot easier.

Join Amcham Finland in partnership with Turkish Airlines and Hard Rock Cafe for the event ‘Executive Assistants’ Network Presents: Business Travel Meets Digitization,’ where the nitty gritty of business travel will be explored through the on-going revamp of digitization.

Katja Vainio, Senior Manager, Strategic Sales Nordics at Carlson Wagonlit Travel, will discuss how the emergence of the digital transformation, mobility, social media and traveler expectations for personalized service are not only propelling the industry to provide richer customer experience, but also demand that companies are agile in providing seamless omnichannel experience for their travelers.

How can companies optimize their business travel with the means of digitization? In her keynote, Katja will discuss how companies can keep their business travel agile, effective and compliant while meeting the needs of travelers, travel arrangers and the company goals.

Turkish Airlines will shortly tell about the benefits they offer Corporate Club members, their all-inclusive service and broad selection of destinations, and Hard Rock Cafe will highlight the space’s versatile event capabilities.
