Mar 17, 2011 (05:03 PM EDT)


ATLANTA, March 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TRX, Inc. (www.trx.com) (OTCQB: TRXI), a world leading provider of travel technology, process automation, consulting and data services, announces the next series of thought leadership webinars designed to cut through the hype surrounding travel program management best-practices and provide valuable, real-world information to travel managers, agencies and corporations looking to reduce travel and procurement costs.

The series will feature thought leadership sessions aimed at providing insight to large corporations, small to medium-sized firms, and travel management companies as each segment faces unique challenges in managing travel spend and overall costs.

"We are extremely pleased with the success of our webinar series," said Shane Hammond, President and CEO, TRX. "There are many webinars available on travel technology topics today," said Hammond. "However, few directly address the needs of travel and financial managers looking to better understand how to reduce costs, improve efficiencies, and prepare for the changes that will inevitably face their businesses. Travel and financial managers need independently derived, real world information so they can better plan for their futures. These sessions will help the managers better understand spend and reduce overall travel program costs."

The April webinar schedule includes:
