The July/August 2007 issue of the Sales and Marketing Management magazine reported the  results of an exploration of T&E budgets and issues in a survey of 275 business travelers. The best result, for my liking was the overview of the answer to:

What do you consider to be the biggest problems with business travel these days? (pick 3)

  • Negative effect on personal life – 50.2%
  • High cost of airline travel – 42.6%
  • Weather-related travel delays – 42.2%
  • Security-related hassles at airports – 37.1%
  • High cost of hotel stays – 34.7%

The #1 item says it all for the role that video conferencing will play in business, in the future.
