Sponsor Testimonials

“This was my first ProcureCon Conference. I was very impressed with the education content as well as the opportunity to network with corporate buyers and suppliers. There was a genuine desire by the participants to share their knowledge and best practices with their fellow attendees. I look forward to attending once again in 2018!”

-- Doug Payne, Senior Vice President Sales @ Altour / 2017 Sponsor

“The ProcureCon Travel conference is a great opportunity to learn from the industry's best. The 3-day event is structured extremely well with great speakers, round-table discussions, and I found the event to be a great opportunity to share best practices and engage one-on-one with peers that are facing the same challenges in today's travel landscape. The Worldwide Business Research (WBR) team does a great job sharing your company story ahead of the event, they line up some great 1:1 meetings for your company, and went above and beyond to make the experience a memorable event. We're looking forward to being heavily involved in future ProcureCon events thanks to the WBR team!”
