In the business travel industry, there is no event in the world bigger than the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) Convention. For travel and meetings managers, meeting planners, and procurement professionals, this is an event you don’t want to miss.
This year’s Convention, to be held at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center, July 15-19, will feature more than 80 industry-leading education sessions covering the latest trends, issues, and guidelines including travel procurement, data utilization, travel policies, and traveler safety.
“In today’s constantly evolving business travel industry, business travelers are driven by the need for mobility in a fast-paced environment, the desire for a more personalized travel experience, and the risks associated with the current technological, environmental and geopolitical landscape,” said Michael W. McCormick, GBTA Executive Director & COO. “As these new elements of travel converge, new hurdles and opportunities for travel professionals are surfacing and GBTA Convention 2017 attendees will have a front row seat for discussions on the latest industry hot topics and solutions.”
Attracting nearly 7,000 business travel professionals from more than 50 countries across the globe, GBTA Convention 2017 will feature world-class keynote speakers, including world champion and gold medalist Michael Phelps. In addition, attendees have access to a 400+ company Exposition showcasing market choices not available at other industry gatherings and a wide selection of professional development and networking opportunities.
