The Challenge

The company needed to plan their annual conference for 180 employees from 19 locations worldwide. The primary hurdle was identifying the destination with the lowest overall transportation costs while considering factors like travel times, employee well-being, and environmental impact. 

Initially, the company considered hosting the meeting in Barcelona, a central and popular location. However, instead of making assumptions, they decided to leverage TROOP to see if there was a more optimal destination.

The TROOP Solution

The Global Travel Manager utilized TROOP ONE to input attendee origins and key criteria, allowing the travel engine to provide data-driven recommendations of alternative destinations. TROOP's platform delivered valuable insights on locations based on travel time, number of layovers, estimated costs of flights and accommodations, emissions, and other critical factors.

The analysis revealed Athens as a more economical and environmentally-sustainable alternative, aligning with the company's cost-saving and sustainability goals.

By switching the conference location to Athens, the company achieved:

  • Cost Savings: $127,409 total savings, including $46,696 in flight costs
