As vaccine distribution increases and businesses slowly start to reopen, what will the "new normal" look like in the world of corporate travel? 
Travel managers are likely busy reimagining the entire program, reviewing strategy, re-writing policies and intensifying the priority on traveler safety & security. Travel Management Companies are likely changing pricing models, overhauling online booking tools, considering consolidation, and updating vendor databases with new rules & regulations.
