"Covid-19 has changed the priorities of how to plan in-person meetings. While in the past, cost was a main deciding factor, today safety is the core driver. We’re very excited to support this by offering Riskline data feeds to our customers."
Dennis Vilovic, Founder of TROOP, explains the driving force behind its new partnership with Riskline. TROOP (formerly TroopTravel), a travel and event booking start-up, helps business event planners to make decisions based on data focussing on safety, service, sustainability and savings, rather than opinion.
The partnership with travel risk intelligence experts Riskline allows TROOP to incorporate the latest, verified safety and security data, enabling meeting and event planners to identify and mitigate risk.
Emanuele Scansani, Director of Partnerships & Strategic Relations at Riskline, explains: “Events and travel planning has changed significantly as a result of the pandemic. There are now multiple risks to take into account which planners need to mitigate and minimise the impact on time, resources and cost. This is why using the latest data that’s verified by experts on the ground is so important.”
