Will continuing education credits be available to Fusion attendees?

Yes. Once our agenda is finalized it will be posted on the Fusion website. Our education content has been endorsed by two associations for Continuing Education credits. 1 hour of content translates into 1 CEU.

15 of our education sessions have been approved by GBTA for Global Travel Professional (GTP) Recertification Credits. Sessions: 103, 104, 305, 306, 307, 310, 311, 402, 404, 405, 411, 412, 414, 504, 511.

We will be scanning badges at the doors to our education sessions to ensure all attendees have the opportunity to support the recertification process. It is the responsibility of the Fusion attendee to follow the procedures of the organization in which they recertify to ensure CEU credits are issued.

Will I have the opportunity to schedule a (45-min) one-on-one consulting session?

Yes. You can request a consulting session while registering for Fusion and when the agenda is published we will be reaching out to finalize your date and time. Consulting sessions are being offered on a first-come-first-serve basis and only one session per client due to limited time and space. Concur will, of course, try to accommodate all requests. During the consulting session, a Concur expert in the area in which you choose to discuss will be able to make minor changes to your site, if you have the authority to allow such changes. You can also bring a list of questions to discuss and also ask questions on the fly in the session. All consultants are experienced and can handle a multitude of questions. They can also suggest best business practices and recommend new features that your company may not have implemented thus far. If you have additional questions, please e-mail ConsultingSessions@concur.com.

NOTE: Consulting sessions do not occur during general sessions and meals. You will need to miss an education session to attend a consulting session.
