What is GBTA all about?


The Global Business Travel Association is a network of more than 28,000 travel professionals and 125,000 active contacts. The organization specializes in education, research, networking and advocacy.

Its annual convention is the largest global corporate travel event of the year, but it also hosts smaller events around the globe and through a network of local chapters. GBTA's Business Travel Intelligence Outlook Annual Global Report & Forecast has served as an industry pulse-check on spending, productivity and growth since 2009.

HRS is proud to be working in close collaboration with GBTA, both in delivering industry research reports and as a regular attendee of and contributor to its global events.
