Is organising business travel a challenge?

Despite the growing advances in technology, face-to-face communication remains key to building a maintaining good business relationships. On-line meetings, SKYPE calls and email all have a role to play in how we communicate in clients, but top business people know that they can never fully replace the personal touch of physically meeting with current or prospective business partners. Businesses recognise the need for meetings and therefore business travel remains a core requirement for many professionals. With this comes the need for short to long-term accommodation. Organising and meeting business travel need not be a challenge if you know what is available, budget and requirements – to enhance business outcomes while minimising travel fatigue.

Whether looking for short or long stay accommodation, there are two important needs that are expressed: to stay as close as possible to client meeting venues or offices to minimise the need for further travel and for a comfortable place to relax at the end of a busy day with the option of sitting at a desk to catch-up on emails or prepare for the following days meetings. Perhaps you are even attending a trade fare, a congress or work conference and therefore expect to be away from home for at least a week with the need for flexibility and some home comforts.

Milton Keynes is a city of growth and development with many new businesses starting or relocating there.
