Mix Business with Leisure
Remember the phrase: “Don’t mix Business with Pleasure”? This phrase is not so true anymore. In fact, it is quickly becoming a common occurrence. So much so that it now even has a name – Bleisure!
In a report by GBTA (Global Business Travel Association), it is reported that 37% of business travelers extended their work trip into a leisure vacation. GBTA finds that Bleisure travelers took 7 work trips this past year. 44% took their families along.
Are there benefits to enjoying Bleisure travel? Absolutely. Those who take Bleisure trips are found to work more effectively, enjoy less stress during business travel, and relax more while away from home. They also realize the benefits of spending quality time with their significant other or their families.
Kelly Phillips, senior VP of Global Engagement and Strategic Accounts for Hilton states, “Business travel is a lifestyle for many of our guests and we’re seeing a growing desire by these travelers to add a leisure component to their trip and experience the destination beyond the meeting room.”
Imagine spending some extra time in Seattle visiting the amazing restaurants they have in the area, or enjoying the beaches of Florida on an extended Bleisure trip. Where will you be traveling next?
