The Top 5 Places for Business Travel


It's widely suggested that travelling broadens the mind, creating a more open perspective and a willingness to explore new opportunities. This can be particularly beneficial for small business owners, who must constantly embrace new technologies and markets if they're to organically develop their ventures.

On a more fundamental level, travelling abroad also enables small business owners to transform their venture's growth prospects, and this is arguably more important than ever with the UK's access to the single market being threatened by Brexit.

Of course, technology is a great way to help advance your business. Using video calls, you can connect with people anywhere in the world. This can lead to business opportunities that you may have only imagined in the past; the world is full of creativity and people with ideas that could take your business in a new and unexpected direction.

However, nothing beats a face-to-face conversation. Here are 5 inspiring places to connect with remarkable business opportunities:


Paris isn’t just the city of romance. It is a thriving metropolis with business opportunities galore. You may associate Paris with food and drink - this is of course one of its main areas of enterprise. However, Paris is also a creative cultural hub, meaning that inspiration is only a step away.

New York

Sometimes dubbed the Capital of the World, New York is a city which thrives on some of the world’s biggest and best businesses. Not only is New York a hot-spot for some of the most successful businesses in the world, it also is a centre of creative thinkers, cutting edge technology and socioeconomic development. Head over to New York for the most worthwhile business trip of your life.


Berlin is the home to fearless entrepreneurs who work and play hard. It is a historical and cultural hot-spot too, meaning you will find something to spark your inspiration. Germany is Europe’s financial engine room, with the EU’s biggest GDP. See what happens when you connect with a businessman from Berlin.


An extraordinarily diverse and culturally rich place, there is little London doesn’t offer. Not only is it the world’s leading financial centre, it also offers a plethora of culture, creativity, history and style. It is full of famous landmarks and business opportunities. Visit London and see your business prospects expand.


The Spanish have a reputation for having their Siestas, but the reality is a nation full of budding entrepreneurs with culture (and the sun!) on their side. Barcelona’s architecture will help you to understand the ambition of Spanish people - nothing will stop them. Go to Barcelona and you won’t struggle to find a passionate entrepreneur.

Planning Your Business Trip

Wherever you choose for your next business trip, remember to plan your visit carefully. Write an itinerary and give yourself a balance between business and pleasure. It’s a good idea to connect with people beforehand to get the most out of your trip; insider knowledge is key.

Travel abroad on business and see your company’s prospects flourish.
