Over the weekend FCM Travel Solutions was named Leading Travel Management Company for Europe at the World Travel Awards.

It is the ninth time that FCM has won this prestigious accolade for the region.

Tomas Tachovsky, General Manager - Europe Network, FCM Travel Solutions was thrilled with the award, which was announced in St Petersburg, Russia at the Russian Museum of Ethnography.

“We are extremely proud to win this award for another year. This is an outstanding achievement and testament to the exceptional travel management services, professionalism and value that our people provide for clients in this region,” said Tomas.

“It is also particularly rewarding to receive such excellent recognition of our business in 2017 as this has been a landmark year for us. Over the last 12 months FCM has grown its equity owned footprint in Europe significantly following acquisitions by our parent company of Travellink Corporate in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden, and Opodo Corporate in Germany.”

“In addition, we have also pioneered the use of artificial intelligence and chatbot technology in the TMC sector with the launch of Sam, our Smart Assistant for Mobile that supports business travellers with Sam with all aspects of travel via a conversational interface on their mobile device. Plus, we have recently launched FCM Connect, our next-generation technology suite of interconnected business travel tools that transform the business travel process.”

“This is an exciting time for FCM in Europe in terms of expansion and innovation, which is part of our overall strategy to provide unique services and experiences to our client’s travellers, bookers and managers.”
