New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) May 06, 2014
Travel has tremendous though often overlooked impacts on people, the planet and the economy. Business travel comprises two thirds of the travel market today; but in spite of the steady growth of ecotourism options in the consumer market, there are still relatively few sustainable travel options for corporate buyers.
Metamorphosis Corporate Sustainability Retreats (“Metamorphosis” – MetaRetreats.com) bridges that divide by planning responsible corporate travel that captures the myriad benefits of ecotourism in the corporate context. Metamorphosis augments these benefits by integrating sustainability programming. The Health and Wellness Experience, for example, delivers healthy meetings, develops sustainable lifestyles, and provides skills and knowledge that return value long after the trip has ended.
“We’re very excited to be attending Concur Fusion this week and to learn from the leaders in optimizing the efficiency of travel and expense management. We hope to share our own approach to optimizing corporate travel through ecotourism and our value-building activities,” says Corey Klemmer, CEO of Metamorphosis. “There’s a real opportunity to build and capture value through all travel that’s not currently being exploited by the corporate market. We’re here to change that.”
Beyond the benefits that Corporate Social Responsibility offers to any company (e.g. talent acquisition and retention, employee engagement, customer loyalty), responsible travel takes travelers off the beaten path, to venues that inspire creativity and innovation. It builds engagement with the destination’s environment and community in a way that leaves travelers feeling uniquely fulfilled and happy.
Concur Fusion brings together thousands of leaders in corporate travel, buyers, sellers and end users of the travel and expense management tool. The event will be hosted all week at the Convention Center in downtown New Orleans.
