TRX, a world-leading provider of travel technology, process automation, consulting and data services, today announced that Tom Tulloch, Vice President Business Intelligence & Consulting Services, TRX, will speak at an educational session on strategies and solutions managing ancillary fees at the 2011 ACTE Global Education Conference being held at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City, New York, April 10 - 12, 2011.

Over the past three years, ancillary fees have grown to $22.6 billion in spend, making it one of the major issues facing the travel industry today. Common fees include but are not limited to, luggage, seat selection, and items purchased on the plane. Without the visibility of costs for these ancillary services, the impact to corporations’ budgets on air spend cannot be determined. The TRX TRAVELTRAX® reporting solution provides travel and expense reporting and analytics that delivers greater insight into the expenses related to ancillary fees.
