THE world’s third largest corporate travel management company, BCD Travel, will soon be opening an office in Perth to address the increasing travel demand from the natural resources sector.
Currently servicing the mining, infrastructure and construction industries, BCD Travel expects its number of clients in this sector to double this year.
“BCD Travel is already well-versed in the resources industry nationally; we are excited to be in a position to grow our Australian presence to support our expanding client base,” BCD Travel general manager Louise Wheeler said.
“Our clients in the resource sector are predicting exponential growth with several high profile projects set to boom in 2012.” As an organisation with strong links to emerging markets within Australia
and the Asia Pacific region, BCD Travel is at the forefront of a landscape that is challenging traditional approaches to travel.BCD Travel will be based in the newly-constructed Equus building on  Hay Street in the centre of Perth’s central business district and is currently employing a local team.
