This paper seeks to describe the conditions which have led to the emergence of various business omnibus services in the UK. It describes the change in British industrial activity which has led to new product development which in turn has led to new technique development to research the new markets. It goes on to describe the current status of business omnibus services and also briefly examines other syndicated services currently available to suppliers of business products and services. A brief review of European services is then undertaken which was as up-to-date as possible at the time of writing. The final section of the paper looks to the future and does not attempt to predict what will happen but merely to put forward some ideas for potential new services which hopefully will promote even more activity in what for the UK is a growing market.
