The authoritative voice of the business travel community is the Global Business Travel Association (formerly the National Business Travel Association), representing over 5,000 corporate travel managers and travel service providers who collectively manage and direct more than $340 billion of expenditures within the business travel industry, primarily for Fortune 1000 companies.

Through the efforts of its member committees and professional staff, GBTA monitors developments in the business travel field and provides time-sensitive research and critical industry information. The association also takes the industry's story to the media and the public, and represents the industry's interests on Capitol Hill. Committed to the advancement of the business travel profession, GBTA offers numerous education and training opportunities and holds an annual international Convention
