Act TravelWise will shortly be launching a national Business Travel Forum. It will be a forum for business actively engaged in delivering sustainable travel solutions for their staff, visitors and those delivering to and servicing their premises. This will facilitate the sharing of knowledge, skills and best practice.
Act TravelWise is looking for expressions of interest from organisations who would like to be part of shaping the scope and direction of the Forum. The Forum will be open to all private organisations irrespective of sector and size. Those in the public sector and transport consultancies are very welcome to nominate organisations that are likely to be interested in joining the Forum.
