(EMAILWIRE.COM, June 18, 2008 ) Alexandria, Va. – With world commerce focused on the critical role that business travel plays in the international economy, three days in October are assuming a growing significance. Business travel executives from the most respected multinational companies in Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the United States, Africa, and the Middle East – more than 1,000 of the most knowledgeable authorities in the industry – will meet in Rome on 5-7 October 2008, for the Association of Corporate Travel Executives' (ACTE) Global Educational Conference.

"Business travel is an integral part of the global economy, with the health of this sector having a trickledown effect on so many related industries," ACTE President Richard Crum, said. "ACTE educational events offer you and your company solutions and tools to effectively navigate the rocky economic terrain. In addition, experts such as chief economist Dr. Nariman Behravesh of Global Insight, who will speak at our Rome conference, provide realistic perspectives which define the challenges and the opportunities that exist in our industry today."

The best-established professional association serving the worldwide business travel industry since 1988, ACTE conferences have been drawing top names in commerce, finance, transportation, hospitality, academia and communications not only as speakers and presenters – but as participants as well. Government leaders, economists, CEOs and company presidents, plus hundreds of travel managers, who collectively save their companies billions of euros, yen, dollars, and pounds in travel expenses, will attend this conference.

Crum added, "If you are searching for solutions regarding corporate social responsibility, online booking tools and advance procurement techniques, then the ACTE Global Education Conference in Rome is the most important business travel event to attend this year."

While all ACTE conferences reflect the association's strong global constituency, care is taken to consult with regional experts on the most pressing issues. Seventeen educational sessions at the ACTE Global Education Conference in Rome will cover every aspect of advanced business travel management, with a special emphasis on Europe and Italy.
