Less Than 1 Week Remains until GBTA’s All-New Virtual Event: Ready. Safe. Travel. Summit
Wednesday, February 17 | 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM EST
GBTA’s Ready. Safe. Travel. (RST) advocacy campaign premiered in November 2020 as the Association’s effort to unite the global business travel industry and drive momentum toward a full recovery. The Ready. Safe. Travel. Summit’s purpose is to educate and prepare our membership and the industry for the evolution of business travel as a result of the on-going pandemic. As we head into 2021, much has changed and is continuing to impact our industry.
Many factors continue to challenge our industry and create more questions: government response to COVID, vaccine distribution, new variants, global entry policies and quarantine rules, etc. The RST Summit will ensure we address these relevant and timely issues and continue to move forward our industry.
