  2. 2. Introduction • The supply side of business travel and tourism is a complex phenomenon because of the different types of business tourism, each with their own specific supply chain. We can also split the supply side into: 1. compulsory supplies, those services which are required for all business travel, namely transport 2. sectoral supplies, those services which are specific to particular business tourism sectors, such as exhibition venues for the exhibition sector 3. optional supplies, services which may be used to enhance the product or experience but which are not an essential part of it such as bars and entertainment. 2

They usually, therefore, have very clear budgets for business tourism events which they must not exceed. 11
