Travel is one of the (fortunate) costs of doing business. It seals deals and moves businesses forward. Business travel also gives you the opportunity to explore a new city or revisit one you love while finding new opportunities and making connections. Traveling to the top business destinations in a private jet helps you get a lot more out of the experience as it allows you to be more productive. Here’s a short list of some of the best destinations to fly to when traveling for business.
America’s “Second City” is one of the top business travel destinations in the U.S. Chicago’s long-standing Chicago Mercantile Exchange, a well-established media industry, and a growing tech industry make it popular among the business crowd. Other well-known industries in the Midwest state include food processing, engineering, and publishing. Check out its world-class architecture, thriving arts scene, and masterpieces before catching a Cubs game at Wrigley Field.
Nestled between the Alps and Mediterranean, Monaco is small enough to fit in London’s Hyde Park but has a reputation big enough to attract the world’s aristocrats. While the principality is known for its affluence, it offers a better value than many European capitals, particularly during the winter. Those in the information and communication technology, finance, medical and environmental sectors frequently flock to the hotspot on the French Riviera. Travel to Monaco for the last weekend in May to catch its famed Formula One Grand Prix on the Circuit de Monaco.
A leading destination for international business trips, London’s top industries include professional services, financial services, tourism, media, and technology. The “Square Mile” competes with New York City as one of the world’s financial centers and is the European continent’s financial epicenter, giving you access to some of the world’s top multinationals. When you’re there, expect to see stunning architecture, artifacts and treasures from the ancient world at the British Museum, cosmopolitan cuisine and a bustling nightlife.
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Located along the waterways of Lake Ontario, Toronto is Canada’s largest city and home to one of the most diverse urban population on the planet. Its top industries include manufacturing and financial services. When you visit, you’ll benefit from some of the best shopping in the world at the Mink Mile and Toronto Eaton Centre. Be sure to take a trip up the CN Tower, the tallest freestanding structure in the western world at 1,815 feet.
New York City, New York
As one of the simplest places in the world to network with like-minded professionals, New York City is a mecca for business travel. Reigning industries include media, financial services, technology, publishing, and communications. It’s also home to the headquarters of some of the biggest businesses on the planet. In between engagements, catch a Broadway show and stroll through Central Park, which has outstanding museums, including the American Museum of Natural History and Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Mexico City, Mexico
The oldest capital in the Americas, Mexico City sits on top of the ancient Aztec capital Tenochtitlan. Corporations serving customers worldwide often choose Mexico City for their Latin American headquarters, making the destination a hub for the consumer product, manufacturing, financial services, and pharmaceutical industries. See amazing colonial buildings from the 16th century that are only a short walk from Aztec ruins. Other jaw-dropping sites include the National Museum of Anthropology, Chapultepec Park, and the magnificent Palacio de Bellas Artes, a prominent cultural center.
