The 16th edition of Univ’AirPlus, the traditional back-to-school event for the business travel industry, will be held on September 8 at the Jardin d’Acclimatation. And for the occasion, the corporate payment solutions specialist’s customers and partners will be able to meet again after a virtual 2021 edition, due to the uncertainties linked to the pandemic. In a context of gradual recovery, the last edition of Univ’AirPlus was dedicated to ‘better travel’, approached from three angles: travel digitalization, duty of care and CSR.
This year, this last theme, which is increasingly topical for companies, will be based on a central question: “travel or act for the planet, should we choose? Time is running out,” says Julie Troussicot, General Manager of AirPlus France. Climate change issues require companies to accelerate the decarbonization of their business travel. By traveling less? Yes, the question deserves to be asked, without taboos. By traveling better? Yes, levers exist, but they must be used, again without taboos.
While AirPlus proposes to its customers to go beyond the efforts already put in place ” to transform their organizations in compliance with CSR issues“, this summer school will be held at the same time. This summer school aims to highlight the challenges that await companies and the arguments in favor of a profound renewal of travel policies.
Moderated by François-Xavier Izenic, and organized around keynotes, interviews and debates, this edition will see the intervention of experts and recognized leaders, reflecting together on the possibility of still traveling while acting for the planet. A detailed program will soon be unveiled by AirPlus.
I’m Michelle, and I love to travel. As a former hotel expert for one of the world’s largest hotel chains, I’ve stayed in nearly every type of room imaginable (including many that were not so desirable!). Nowadays, I am fortunate enough to be able to explore the world on my own terms. From international flights to learning different languages, there is nothing too far out of reach!
