GBTA Coronavirus Poll: Your Input Is Critical
GBTA Coronavirus Poll: Your Input Is Critical
Since the outset of the pandemic, GBTA has been running regular polls amongst the membership to assess the impact that COVID-19 has had on their specific business, our industry and the global economy. What we’ve seen thus far has been enlightening and educational and assists us greatly in the development of our recovery plans.
The GBTA polls have been vital in helping our members across the travel industry, and policymakers throughout the world, better understand the ramifications of COVID-19. The results have especially helped us in our advocacy and legislative efforts and in our mission to help safely restart business travel.
We’re so grateful for your participation and as always, would like to ask for your continued help. Our ability to provide guidance and pertinent information depends on our members willingness to share their experiences. Would you please be so kind as to complete the GBTA poll below if you have not already done so. The closing date is Friday, September 18.
Thank you again for your support!
Dave Hilfman, GBTA Interim Executive Director
