While business professionals may not be logging as many miles as they used to in 2017, they will still be spending many nights away from home. It is estimated that business executives will take more than 488 million business trips in the United States this year. Unlike in the past, women account for almost 50 percent of all business travelers. Those executives will see some changes this year, but one thing will remain the same. Business executives require limousines to make their lives easier.
Mixing Pleasure with Business
Many executives are finding that they are mixing pleasure with business by extending their business trips by a day or two to experience all a city has to offer them. For example, business executives coming to Nashville may spend an additional day or two exploring The Grand Old Opry, Country Music Hall of Fame and Ryman Auditorium.
Not only are business travelers spending more time in each city, but they are also looking to be more physically active during that time. When visiting Nashville, they may choose to head to Adventureworks for zip-lining fun near the Harpeth River or go paddleboarding at the Rock Harbor Marina. Other executives are renting a bike, allowing them to explore the historic downtown Nashville area with ease. Travelers are looking to do things that they can do in no other location, overseeing things that they can view in many different locations.
Efficiency over Luxury
In order to accomplish all that they want to do while still taking care of business, travelers are opting for efficiency over luxury. Many travelers are choosing to stay at the Gaylord Opry Resort and Convention Center because of its convenient location and over 600,000 square feet of exhibit space. Others are opting for Hotel Preston with its 4,400 square foot ballroom which is the perfect spot for hosting large meetings. Still, others are opting to stay at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel when conducting business at Vanderbilt University because of its convenient location. The 28 meeting rooms at DoubleTree by Hilton also makes an efficient choice for business travelers. Regardless of where they are staying, these travelers are demanding workspace that is well organized and properly equipped.
Need for the Latest Travel Gadgets
Regardless of where the business executive roams, he is taking the latest travel gadgets with him. One travel gadget that many are opting for is the Airscale, allowing travelers to accurately weigh their bags before any business trip while also doubling as a power bank. Another gadget that many are taking is a smart suitcase with its embedded battery charger, integrated scale, remote locking and location finder.
