The impact of terrorism on business travel & corporate events


Crises of past years including the recent attacks in the heart of Europe have had a huge impact on travel in general and particularly business travel and corporate events.

This survey aims to shed light on the impacts of these acts, the measures implemented by companies in the short term and possible changes in security plans for travel and events.

It is directed at senior decision-makers for corporate events and business travel. It has been created by UNICEO in association with business travel associations and partners internationally.
