Business Check powered by LinkedIn offers users of the AccorHotels mobile app to facilitate business opportunities by allowing travellers to identify people in network who are based in the city they are in as well as suggesting relevant people to connect with. With over 26 million business travellers, the development could prove a boon for app users, 60 percent of which are business travellers.

The new feature will allow LinkedIn users to share their next business trip destination with their network in one click, find out which of their LinkedIn contacts reside in the city they are staying in, and develop their network thanks to a suggested list of relevant profiles in their travel destination.

Available in 18 languages, the feature enriches an app that is currently downloaded five times every minute.
