According to 6,057 business travelers surveyed in the third edition of the Egencia Business Travel and Technology Study, a majority of 86 percent said a meeting conducted in-person is more effective and productive, a view consistent across every age group. Travelers in Australia, Canada, China, India, UK, and the US made a stronger endorsement, at 90 percent, on average; as did travelers with a title of VP and above (91 percent). Travel is also closely linked to professional success in the minds of business travelers. More than two-thirds of global travelers surveyed (67 percent) said they would be less successful in their role if they did not travel. Travelers in Australia, Canada, China, India, UK, and the US agreed most strongly at levels above 70 percent, as did VPs and above. Far from being irrelevant, Egencia's findings revealed widespread support for, and confidence in, business travel as a personal and professional tool.
