Preparing For


Spring Restaurant,
Somerset House

Wednesday 7th August

18:30 – 21:30 BST

“The rise in traveler numbers, operational challenges that constrain capacity and an increasingly complex regulatory landscape will force the aviation industry to look for new tools to enhance planning efficiency and mitigate risk.”  



– Forbes, 2024

The COVID-19 pandemic taught travel companies that when disruption hits, they bear the brunt. And despite global tourism returning to pre-pandemic levels in 2023 [Forbes, 2024], it acts as a haunting reminder that fortunes can change overnight.


For many, security lies in building elasticity into their finances function. However, with over 65% of finance functions burdened with disparate legacy technology [Forbes, 2023], another sudden disruption could prove disastrous for those unprepared. Leaders face a choice: pray for smooth seas, or prepare for choppy waters that may lie ahead.


The clock is ticking. How can finance leaders in the travel industry leverage the right technologies to effectively safeguard their organisations against future risks?

We’re committed to supporting our society and environment. When you attend a Change Makers Club event, we pledge to neutralise your carbon footprint. To offset your travel or energy usage we will plant a tree via One Tree Planted. Once mature, the average tree has a net absorption of 30 kg of CO2 per year, which equates to 227 miles of travel by car or 96 hours of office usage. You can see our maths here.
