Hosted Buyer Programme – Buyer delegates attend free

BTTB Australia 2016 will again adopt the ‘hosted buyer’ programme, whereby buyer delegates can attend on a complimentary basis, with the quid pro quo that they commit to organising a minimum of four pre-scheduled 15 minute, one-to-one meetings with participating event partners and exhibitors. These meetings, scheduled prior to the event using an online meetings scheduling system, provide buyers with the opportunity to identify and meet in private with suppliers that they are particularly keen to learn more about.

Hosted buyer tickets will be allocated on a first come, first served basis so register now to secure your ticket.

BTTB Australia Travel Management Awards

After 10 years of running the BTTB Awards, we have decided this year to cease the Awards programme.

Instead, under the PASA brand, we are running ‘Entrepreneurial Procurement Awards’ recognizing individuals and organisations from both the buy and supply sides of the market who have demonstrated entrepreneurial behaviour to drive real value for their own organisations, stakeholders or customers.
