Bigger and brighter than ever the Business Travel Show 2018 was a real success.

Now in its 24th year, the Business Travel show is Europe’s largest specialised event for business travel.  This years’ event occupied more floor space than ever in the beautiful main hall at Olympia.  Roomex attended for the fifth straight year with a bigger presence than we had to date.  Our team travelled in from Dublin, Bristol, London and Manchester and we enjoyed a packed diary as the Roomex message on visibility, control and savings around corporate hotel programmes gets ever more traction among the 7000 travel specialists in attendance.  As an ever-expanding company Roomex uses Business Travel Show to touch not only British companies but those in Europe and indeed worldwide.  We were delighted to welcome customers and prospects alike to the stand, including the Travel Manager of our first ever customer, Central Bank of Ireland, which has been with Roomex since 2012 and continues to rely on our platform to ensure their team stay in the most appropriate business-level hotel globally.

We were delighted to meet many travel buyers for the first time and have an extensive list of follow-up contacts which will keep our team busy for the coming weeks.  They were impressed by our no fee model which provides benchmarking, speed and a depth of content that is not available through any other corporate hotel platform.

Travel is an ever-evolving sector and often at the leading edge of technology.  Key messages from the conference were the increasing importance of Duty of Care, the potential impact of Artificial Intelligence on travel and traveller customization, all things that the Roomex tech team are looking at today.

We have already signed up to stand B3300 for 2018 Business Travel, it’s never to early to set an appointment but if you are a travel manager, travel booker or indeed a business traveller contact us directly to discuss how Roomex can save you time and money while providing visibility and control on your work-related hotel bookings.

Roomex & Expensify team up to auto-expense hotel accommodation

 

Roomex and Expensify have announced a new partnership with the launch of a direct integration that enables companies booking hotel accommodation to auto-expense their hotel bills.

Existing Roomex customers will have the option to enable the Expensify integration on their personalised Roomex platform.  Expensify customers who are new to Roomex can visit the Expensify.roomex.com site, where they can search for and book hotels and automatically have their booking receipts imported into their Expensify account.  For Expensify customers Roomex will:

  • Allow hotel billing to be automatically added to expense reports for seamless expense tracking and reimbursement.
  • Provide the widest range of business hotel inventory with over 650,000 hotels worldwide
  • Benchmark rates booked against 35 global suppliers of corporate hotel inventory
  • Save on average 21% on work-related hotel bookings
  • Create an efficient hotel booking process with no fees or contracts

For companies with regular hotel requirements Roomex will create a personalised Roomex platform, free of charge.  It's a great match,” says Jack Donaghy, Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Roomex. “Our mission is to make the entire end-to-end process of booking and managing hotel accommodation as easy and cost-effective as possible, for example by consolidating all hotel bills onto a single monthly invoice. This seamless integration with Expensify will further enhance the experience of booking through Roomex by automating the expense submission, tracking and reimbursement process.”

“We want to create an efficient experience for everyone involved with business travel management. With hotel accommodation being one of the major corporate travel expenses, working with Roomex to automate hotel expenses was a natural partnership that aligns with our vision,” notes Tom Rhys Jones, Head of EMEA Business Development at Expensify.
