The GBTA Convention is the largest, most comprehensive annual gathering of the business travel industry. Over the 5-day convention, 160+ leaders in business travel will speak about changes coming to the industry and what can be expected for the upcoming year. Networking and education sessions throughout the show will provide ample time for the exhibitors and travel buyers in attendance to learn about the latest and best techniques in travel management.
A few GBTA attendee tips from our team:
Firstly, if you aren’t a seasoned participant like us, we recommend registering for the first-time attendee orientation – it’s a good way to get your bearings. Don’t miss the high profile celebrity luncheon speakers – Julia Louise-Dreyfus, Peyton Manning and Captain Scott Kelly. We’re also excited to see what the new Peer-to-Peer Think Tank sessions are all about and brush up on industry trends in education sessions. You can be sure to find the JTB USA Business Travel team on the tradeshow floor at our technology partners booths – Concur, Grasp, Cvent and Yapta, to name a few. Basically, we’ll be just about everywhere during the day and in the evenings we’ll be taking advantage of the opportunity to visit with our suppliers like United, National and Hyatt at their hosted after parties.
Other suggestions would be to wear comfortable shoes, drink plenty of water, have some mints on hand and, most importantly, pace yourself! See you there.
