Established in June 2019 by CAPA – Centre for Aviation, CTC – the Corporate Travel Community – is a network of corporate travel buyers and other personnel who manage their organisation’s travel portfolios. CTC is part of Informa, whose Informa Markets division runs hundreds of events and trade shows around the world under more than 550 B2B brands. This allows CTC to uniquely connect with travel buyers and travel managers beyond the reach of traditional corporate travel industry associations.
CTC’s mission is simple: to help corporate travel buyers progress in their roles and careers, by providing them with information, data and networking opportunities. The CTC – Corporate Travel Community meets regularly for training, social events, seminars and summits across Asia’s major business centres and is governed by two advisory councils, consisting of senior corporate travel executives from leading local organisations and multinational blue-chip corporations with physical presence in Asia or Australasia.
Derek Sadubin, Managing Director, Corporate Travel Community:
Derek Sadubin is Managing Director of CAPA and is one of the architects of CAPA’s expanded coverage of the corporate travel sector over the past decade. Having first attended a corporate travel event hosted by the ebullient Benson Tang in 2012, the seeds were sown for an expansion of CAPA’s content to capture the rising importance and impact of the segment.
The creation of Corporate Travel Community in 2019 was the culmination of many years of planning and experimentation – to deliver an innovative, buyer-centric model to the industry. Derek holds a B.Bus (Management) and B.Arts (Tourism Management) from the University of Technology, Sydney.
