American Express Global Business Travel announced the results of its 2015 EVP Barometer. The results show that growth in business travel budgets in Europe was twice as strong as expected heading into 2015. Business travel spending increased by 1.42% in 2015, more than twice the rise anticipated in the 2014 Barometer (0.7%).

The number one priority of company executives when considering business travel is now “safety and security”, followed by “cost control” and ”traveller satisfaction”.
