An education session to share the research titled "#FOMO: What Companies Who Prioritize Traveler Satisfaction Know... and You Don't" will be conducted on Tuesday, August 6 at 9:45 AM
  • U.S. businesses spend approximately $100B on dining and $15B on corporate (B2B) catering in restaurants. Companies want visibility of catering as part of total food spend – as dining is the 3rd largest T&E spend category right behind air & hotel.
