Meetings Plastic: Drastic or Fantastic?
The Hotel Booking Agents Association (HBAA) is to launch its latest study in a series of White Papers for the conference and meetings sector. Titled ‘Meetings plastic: Drastic or fantastic?’ the paper looks at the growing presence and consequences of credit card payments in strategic meetings management.

Researched and written by business travel journalists Mark Frary and Betty Low, the paper explores the relationship and ramifications of company credit card usage among hotels and venues, agents and corporate clients.

HBAA Executive Director, Peter Ducker said: “As the White Paper underlines, credit cards are coming to the fore as traditional billback takes a back seat. The purpose of the paper is to understand what the business implications of cards are in the outsourcing process. We respect that our member agents operate different financial models and have created the paper in response to demand for them to understand new meetings cards from American Express, Mastercard and Visa.”
