He asked me when the manager (would travel/was travelling) to attend the next conference. 
I choose "was travelling". What are your choices, please? 
Thanks in advance!

I see that both choices are grammatically correct here.

Hi, Muh1994—I agree with Ahmed_btm that both choices are correct. In quoted direct speech, the sentence "He asked me when the manager would travel to attend the next conference" becomes "He asked me, 'When will the manager travel to attend the next conference?" And the sentence "He asked me when the manager was traveling to attend the next conference" becomes "He asked me, 'When is the manager traveling to attend the next conference?"
