The BTA has signed the TRIP Group as its latest industry partner – its first in the travel risk management sector.

The pair will work together to improve members’ risk awareness and resolve the challenges faced by international business travel, collaborating on joint ventures such as events and industry meetings.

Clive Wratten, CEO of the BTA, said: “Since the pandemic, the risks associated with business travel have become more ambiguous, so it is paramount that as a community, we remain informed and prepared for these challenges as the industry recovers.

“Our partnership with the TRIP Group has come at the perfect time and is a valued attribute to the BTA. Together, we will navigate these uncertainties to tackle the post-Covid world and protect the future of business travel, whilst ensuring our members enjoy a safe, informed and secure journey.”

The Travel Risk & Incident Prevention (TRIP) Group is a diverse organisation formed by members from corporations, NGOs, government departments and travel experts, creating a community of experienced professionals within the travel sector to streamline business travel safety and security.

Lloyd Figgins, CEO of the TRIP Group, added: “Our new alliance is an opportunity to extend our ethos to other like-minded business companies. We are excited to work together to strengthen the safety of our community and prepare industry leaders for travel’s current and future challenges on both a local and global scale.”
