Trends happening in the travel industry
Globally, business travel spend will reach an astounding $1.25 Trillion by the end of 2015. That’s trillion with a “t” for business travel alone, not counting personal travel. Clearly, businesses continue to see the value of meeting in-person.
The growth is especially strong in China, which is forecast to grow 61% by 2019. Other emerging countries expecting to reach […]

Like you, we’re always thinking about the travel experience. Sometimes, we’re working on a way to make it better, while other times, we’re questioning a specific travel experience, pondering exactly why it works the way it does. We have these discussions often in the TripCase office, but we’d like to invite you to join in, […]
A few months ago I shared my thoughts on “Why Managers Should Continue To Code”. I had ended that with a statement asking you to take action, but did not outline any strategies for you to follow. In this article, I will share some of my strategies with you, and also give you a recent example […]
It’s a Wonderful Life, A Christmas Story, White Christmas, Elf, Home Alone, Miracle on 34th Street and the list goes on and on. What do all of these movies have in common (besides that they are about the holidays)? They all take place in an icy, snowy, or cold climate! Snowflakes, hot cocoa, snowmen, and […]

If you are a manager in a software development company, there is a good chance that you are not coding anymore. A typical organization does not expect managers to be writing code and contributing to products that are released. This usually results in managers stepping away from coding and the details that go along with it.
But is this how it should be? Let me tell you my story. […]
Recently, major airlines including American, Delta, and United have adopted new maximum dimensions for their carry-on baggage allowances. The industry standard used to be 22in x 15in x 9in, but those have recently shrunk, according to George Hobica, founder of Airfarewatchdog.
I am reluctantly writing this blog from Starbucks because all the homegrown coffee shops I generally prefer to work from: Mudsmith, Ascension, or Drip Coffee are all closed for Memorial Day. Whether I’m at home or traveling, I prefer homegrown establishments not only because I feel like I’m supporting the local economy, but because they generally offer me greater insight into the culture of a city. I’m not only referring to coffee shops, but also places like restaurants, bars, theaters, parks, and museums. I don’t just want their names and how many stars they are rated. I would also like to know what events are going on at these places from a week to week basis. This level of information is what would help me truly connect to a new city…and what typically takes me the most time researching as I plan for an upcoming trip. Is there a local artist opening that week at a gallery I’d be interested in? Are the Quaker City Nighthawks playing at such and such bar Saturday night? Is there a 5k I can join while I’m there? Is there a community market popping up that week near my hotel?
