The Business Travel and Meetings Show (BTMS) takes place at London’s Earls Court next week, with highlights including a presentation by Will Whitehorn, president of Virgin Galactic, and the unveiling of this year’s Cellars in the Sky Awards.
Whitehorn – who has in the past been referred to as “Branson’s right-hand man” – will be appearing on Centre Stage at 1pm on Wednesday February 10, with a presentation entitled The Final Frontier of Business Travel.
No exact date has yet been set for the launch of Virgin’s space flights, but interested individual’s can register for more information at virgingalactic.com/booking. Flights are expected to cost around $200,000, with deposits from $20,000.
We’ve no idea what in-flight food and beverage service you’ll get for that sort of money, but if you’d like to toast the best wines and champagnes served on long-haul flights within the Earth’s atmosphere, then head to Centre Stage at 1pm on Tuesday February 9, where the annual Business Traveller Cellars in the Sky Awards will be presented.
The awards will be followed by a tasting session of a selection of this year’s winning wines and champagnes on the Business Traveller stand (27) at 2pm, with further tastings taking place at 11am and 3pm on Wednesday February 10.
BTMS is Europe’s leading event for the corporate travel and meetings industry – to register for the show visit businesstravelshow.co.uk.
