As the economy continues to sputter, business travel is under scrutiny and many companies are reluctant to spend on corporate travel.

For example, in-person meetings can yield a 40% conversion rate vs a 16% conversion rate without a face-to-face meeting. We’ve taken all our research and turned it into an informative and entertaining infographic that contains some compelling data, including the Top 10 Business Travel Destinations and the Top 10 Most Expensive Business Travel Destinations (see if your city made the list).
