Case Studies

Examples speak better than words. See how we #CreateBetter travel and meetings management with our clients

FESTIVE ROAD walked us through a well-thought through planning process which has resulted in a clear, defined path forward and a best-in-class strategy. Having the independence and knowledge of the FESTIVE ROAD team added weight and clarity to the process.

Our relationship with FESTIVE ROAD has turned into a real partnership, driving deeper market insights and making a bigger impact with the corporate travel community. An industry listening exercise reinforced things we thought we knew and has also uncovered new opportunities. This partnership has deepened our relationships and created tangible change, with one large global corporate investing time and resources to come from Europe to see us in Dallas.

We were dealing with a highly sensitive project under demanding timescales. The evaluation of the volume of information and data, balanced with sector context was, without doubt, one of the most significant contributions that the FESTIVE ROAD team brought to this project. The combination of true consulting rigour, coupled with industry expertise is a fine art!

Working with FESTIVE ROAD was one of the singularly most powerful catalysts to drive customer-centric thinking across our entire organisation. The brief was nailed and the impact was immediate and electric. Unsolicited feedback from attendees: This was an absolutely amazing session. I could sit and listen to the talented folks from FESTIVE ROAD speak all day. Their insights are amazing and the way the present is quite engaging. Kudos to this amazingly talented team.

We knew that we had asked FESTIVE ROAD to help us with a progressive but challenging project. We selected them because of their experience and profile on the subject of NDC. They were professional, informative and friendly throughout, but most importantly of all, they helped us make the best decision for BASF we could in a very complex area.

FESTIVE ROAD’s work to bring some independent facilitation to our Corporate Advisory Board ensured we achieved every objective we could have hoped for.

Our People

Two key things you need to know about our team – the “Roaders:”

We hire smart people with great attitudes, then give them the tools they need and off they go — ready to create value for you through intelligent innovation.

We operate by the motto, “Do what you love and love what you do.” When our Roaders do what they’re best at AND what they enjoy doing, the energy flows on our clients’ behalf. Besides, who wants to spend their life working on stuff they dislike? That’s a roundabout, not a road.

Our Values

How do our Roaders make decisions in your best interests?

How do we make decisions at FESTIVE ROAD in the best interests of you and our people? More than pretty words on a wall, these values guide our every decision and represent the very essence of who we are and why we do the work we do in the way we do it. There’s no better way to get to know us than this.



Let’s face it – this is a highly interconnected industry with a lot of complex relationships. That’s the very reason why we created FESTIVE ROAD – because it was high time for buyers and suppliers to have access to unbiased, strategic guidance to move them forward. We don’t have an agenda and are beholden to none, which empowers each of our Roaders to focus on what’s best for our clients.


We’re totally transparent about how we do business, from managing potential conflicts of interest to our commitment to never accept commissions or engage in sales arrangements with any industry party. At FESTIVE ROAD, we’re an open book, and we hope to inspire others in the travel industry to follow suit.


Like a good friend, we care about and respect you and each other, or we wouldn’t be working together! But we’re also the friend who will say when there’s something that needs to be said but which others don’t have the courage to say. One of our clients describes it best: “FESTIVE ROAD is our Kool-Aid prevention kit!” We consider that high praise.


Our Roaders aren’t just seasoned industry experts – they’re thoughtful, creative folks whose vibrant lives outside of work make them and their work even better. Roaders are empowered to live fully into who they are in all aspects of their work. As a result, clients tell us we’re interesting and fun to collaborate with, and we’ve seen time and again how enjoyable work creates better results.


We truly live by our mission to create better travel and meetings management. If the work we’re doing doesn’t truly make a difference for our clients or the industry at large, we simply won’t do it.


These attributes all underpin the way we work.  It’s our special sauce.  It’s what makes FESTIVE ROAD tick, and it builds our Knowledge, Network and Credibility, which is what allows us to bring the best value possible to our clients.
