Portman Travel presence at Public Procurement Show signals company’s growth in sector

Leading travel management company, Portman Travel, is exhibiting for the first time at the Guardian sponsored Public Procurement Show, taking place at the ExCel centre in London from 14-15 June.

Head of Public Sector Travel for Portman Travel, Katrina Williams, will host the company’s stand at the exhibition, demonstrating Portman’s increased involvement in the public sector arena.

Portman Travel’s win of a four-year framework agreement for Travel Management Service Providers by Buying Solutions (the national procurement partner for all UK public services) in September 2010, provided the ideal opportunity to extend their significant experience within the private sector to deliver outstanding travel solutions, whilst providing value for money and continuous innovation, to public sector organisations.

Williams was appointed following the win and is responsible for securing new public sector business and managing senior level relationships with key bodies, including the Cabinet Office and the Efficiency and Reform Group.

Williams said: “The focus on getting value for the public’s money has never been greater and I’m looking forward to showing exactly what we can do to meet the increasingly complex travel requirements in this sector. The Public Procurement Show is an ideal platform for us to showcase the expertise Portman Travel can bring to this area.” 


Michael Hare, Chief Executive Officer of Portman Travel, said: “As a business, the public sector is an important new market for us. Katrina’s appointment and our presence at this show is important for our strategic commitment to this sector.”

Portman Travel can be found on stand D31 at the exhibition.
