GBTA National Travel Forum Update
To All Participants of the 2012 GBTA National Travel Forum (NTF) Conference,
Having been notified by the General Services Administration (GSA) that it is unwilling to support the National Travel Forum (NTF) planned for June 4 – 7, 2012, the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) had no choice but to cancel the National Travel Forum conference.
GBTA staff members and volunteer leaders from the GSA spent countless hours developing the NTF program together. And, although we at GBTA firmly believe that there is no more appropriate time for government travel professionals to learn cost cutting strategies from top corporate travel managers, hear from business and academic leaders, build key relationships with industry suppliers, and reinforce ethical behavior standards, we could not hold this important forum without GSA’s participation.
As no government funds were used to create the National Travel Forum, the National Travel Forum represents the best of a public/non-profit partnership.
We feel this was the most appropriate course of action under the circumstances. For information regarding policies related to the cancellation, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions today.
