Charles de Gaspe Beaubien, Groupize Founder and CEO, has been named one of BTN’s 2017 Most Influential in the Business Travel Industry. BTN’s annual list, which recognizes those who have made major impacts on the industry, was announced during its Business Travel Trends & Forecasts conference in New York City last week.
Charles has been a trailblazer and influencer in the groups, meetings and events space since 2012 including a win at Phocuswright for most Innovative Travel Technology Emerging Category. The list also includes other notable technology visionaries such as Blockchain creator Satoshi Nakamoto and hospitality leaders like AccorHotels chairman & CEO Sebastien Bazin, Hilton president & CEO Christopher Nassetta and Marriott International president & CEO Arne Sorenson. Previous top 25 winners include Michael Boult, a Groupize Board Member and Todd Tyler, a member of the Groupize Advisory Board.
“It is a tremendous honor to be part of such an outstanding group of industry change-makers,” said Charles. “This recognition further supports the industry’s acknowledgement of Simple Meetings being a sleeping giant, with a cumulative volume likely higher than complex meeting spend. We commit 100% of our time and energy focusing on simplifying meetings and events and are proud to be leading the evolution of the category classification from Small to Simple. We congratulate all of the award winners, including the Multinational Travel Manager of the Year.”
