Abacus International, Asia Pacific’s leading provider of travel services and solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with the Association of Corporate Travel Executives (ACTE), the global organisation pioneering educational and technological advances in business travel.

The two organisations, collaborating on initiatives to develop corporate travel in the Central Asian Republics are starting by co-hosting the third Abacus Corporate Travel Executive Forum in Almaty at the end of October 2013. The aim is to facilitate knowledge transfer between multi-national businesses developing commercial links with Kazakhstan, together with travel management companies and corporate travel agencies working with their Central Asian counterparts.

Key topics for the Forum include traveller trends and intelligence, Government policy as it relates to corporate travel and new areas of travel policy compliance and process innovation, with Abacus contributing on the latest technological advances.

Pavel Spitsyn, General Manager, Abacus Central Asia, explained, “This is an important initiative in helping to construct the framework for the industry to better engage with Kazakhstan, both as a destination and an outbound market. We look forward to partnering with ACTE to understand and unlock more of Central Asia’s potential, working with the local business travel community.”

“We are pleased to partner with Abacus given the strength of their travel solutions regionally and we believe our partnership will positively impact the industry across Central Asia,” said Benson Tang, Regional Director at ACTE. “Facilitating knowledge transfer at a high level, this is a strategic step for ACTE.”

The Forum takes place on the 29th and 30th October at the Rixos Almaty Hotel. Contact for more information.
