Convention Memories – Part 2

From monkeys on the Expo Floor to yoga sessions for stress relief, there’s always something new in store at GBTA Convention. Throughout our decades of hosting the event, our attendees have walked away with thousands of unforgettable memories. This year marks our 50th anniversary, and in honor of that, we’ve been asking past attendees to share their favorite, first or standout memories from the event. If you’d like to get involved and commemorate our growth over the years, share your own memories here.

“My first convention was in San Antonio, Texas in the mid '80's, I was working in the hotel industry at the time but it was at NBTA that I met some TMC executives thru one of the convention networking events, oddly enough on a river boat ride, this ended up launching what's now been a 30+ year career in the travel industry. Thank you GBTA for not losing sight over the years the value in bringing us all together!”
