GBTA Legislative Summit 2019

May 14-16 | Washington, D.C.


Help us set the direction of business travel legislation! In 2018, GBTA teamed with a group of passionate business travel professionals to pass legislation that will benefit our industry in the years to come. Since then, a new Congress has been elected, presenting a unique opportunity for the business travel industry to shape policy and to influence the upcoming Congressional agenda. Join us at the annual GBTA Legislative summit for your chance to:

  • Meet face-to-face with Senators and Representatives to share opinions and advocate for policies that support the business travel industry;
  • Learn about Congressional debates and outcomes that will impact the business travel industry;
  • Hear perspectives from Administration Officials and Members of Congress;
  • Connect with other industry professionals who want to make a difference; and
  • Gain an insider experience of the home of our Nation’s government.
