TEAM TRAVEL The IBTM Trends Watch Re­port 2016 pre­dicts 2017 will see a “con­tin­u­ing rally in de­mand for in­cen­tive travel”, with bud­gets ex­pand­ing for group in­cen­tive trips. Last year, per-per­son spend­ing was back up to US$3,165. Meet­ings are also on the rise, but Euro­pean firms are be­ing cau­tious about bud­gets, short­en­ing travel time and com­bin­ing mul­ti­ple meet­ings. Ac­cord­ing to the ICCA (In­ter­na­tional Congress and Con­ven­tion As­so­ci­a­tion), Berlin, Paris and Barcelona are the most pop­u­lar cities for meet­ings in Europe. The US, Ger­many and the UK are the most fre­quented coun­tries over­all.
