BCD Travel earns ‘Most Admired TMC’ designation for ninth time

UTRECHT, The Netherlands, Dec. 8, 2021 – A cross section of corporate travel industry professionals surveyed by industry news publication The Beat has selected BCD Travel as the Most Admired Travel Management Company for the ninth time, The Beat announced yesterday.

The Beat readers identified their most admired companies in six categories: airlines, hotels, car rental companies, TMCs, technology providers and payment systems. Winners were determined based on a reader-poll conducted this summer. The poll asked readers to vote for the most admired suppliers for their policies, management style and service for business clients. Participants were not allowed to vote for their own employers.

The Beat’s readers include travel professionals from corporations, TMCs, airlines, hotels, global distribution systems, technology providers, car rental firms, payment systems, consultants, financial analysts and media.

“We’ve cherished this award since we received the first recognition in 2009,” said John Snyder, President and CEO at BCD Travel and CEO at BCD Group. “We’re honored that our peers and clients noticed our efforts and voted us Most Admired TMC for the fifth consecutive year. It’s especially meaningful since this recognition comes amid the pandemic, which has brought us and the whole industry unique and difficult challenges.”

The Beat is published by The BTN Group, which also publishes Business Travel News and Travel Procurement magazine and is part of Northstar Travel Group. The Beat serves over 10,000 readers through its paid-subscription newsletter and website that provide breaking news about corporate travel distribution, travel management and technology.

The ‘Most Admired TMC’ award adds to a string of recent recognitions for BCD, including Forbes’ Best Mid-Sized Employers 2021, EcoVadis Platinum sustainability rating for the second year, TripSource winning a 2021 Gold Stevie® Award for best travel app and the COVID-19 Info Hub winning a Bronze Stevie® Award for most valuable service in the category COVID-19 response.
