If our company is hosting a conference and we invite several people to speak, are their travel expenses reportable to the IRS?


If the speakers account for their expenses and provide receipts, the reimbursement is not reportable. See “Accountable Plan” and “Rules for Independent Contractors and Clients” in IRS Publication 463, available at http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p463.pdf.
