Be Smart. Be Hip. Be Seen. At the ACTE Global Education Conference, New York City April 10 – 12, 2011
Alexandria, VA (9 August 2010) – The Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE) has announced New York City as the site of its spring Global Educational Conference, April 10 -12, 2011. According to a statement issued by ACTE’s Executive Director Ron DiLeo, “We have been evaluating a number of cities for our spring conference but New York has everything. It is one of the world’s foremost international cities and many of our members and conference attendees who come from around the world also have offices in or near the city that they can visit as part of their trip to our conference. And you can fly to New York directly from more places around the world than just about anywhere. It is a logical choice for a major, global industry meeting designed to cut travel time, and time away from the office.” The Marriott Marquis Times Square will be the venue hosting the conference.
ACTE’s educational team, in coordination with the conference planning committee, will focus a great deal of their work on creating highly interactive sessions that will include several new and provocative discussion and learning programs.
“Be Smart. Be Hip. Be Seen. is more than a theme for our spring conference. It is our battle cry to the industry to drive change and innovation. The time has come to breath the life back into the business travel management profession with new approaches, new strategies, and new information,” said DiLeo. “ACTE’s attitude about everything going forward and into the 2011 educational calendar is, Be smart (educated and informed), be hip (progressive thinking and in-the-know), and be seen (network and grow). Our industry needs new material and ACTE is going to lead that charge. I cannot think of better place to kick off that level of thought leadership next year than New York, one of the world’s premier business and financial centers and a place where people make things happen.”
