GBTA and Worldwide ERC Team Up to Bring Business Travel and Workplace Transformation Insights to the Asia-Pacific Region

Co-located events September 19-20, 2023, in Singapore will empower attendees  to serve a global marketplace on the move

In a world where business is constantly changing, delivering the best experiences for companies and their employees is paramount − but more challenging than ever. Organizations and professionals are seeking the best ways to move forward to serve new paradigms in transformation, global mobility, business travel, and the overall future of work.

That’s why for the first time, GBTA, the premier association for the global business travel industry, and Worldwide ERC, the world’s leading association for professionals engaged in global talent mobility, are working together to co-locate their respective conferences for the Asia-Pacific region.

Taking place on September 19-20 at the Shangri-La Singapore, the co-located events will provide a unique gathering opportunity where business travel, meetings management, and mobility relocation professionals will be able to connect, innovate and learn about the region’s return to travel and new products and services, all under one roof. While each conference will run separately, attendees will have access to the content of both programs and gain increased value and networking opportunities during the combined expo hall and social events.

“Serving the needs of companies and their teams in a changing world is a mission shared by GBTA and Worldwide ERC − whether it involves moving people for business travel or for global mobility and relocation. We are very excited to team up with Worldwide ERC to bring greater value to attendees of our individual conferences by creating this broader opportunity for learning and networking through our co-located events in APAC,” said Suzanne Neufang, CEO, GBTA.

“We believe that collaboration is the key to driving innovation and progress in the field of global talent mobility and relocation. By co-locating our event with GBTA, we not only will combine our strengths and resources but also expand and deepen our impact in the APAC market. We are grateful for this opportunity and thrilled to witness the results it will yield for our delegates,” said Lynn Shotwell, CEO, Worldwide ERC.

The GBTA APAC Conference 2023-Singapore will bring together the APAC business travel community to network, learn from industry experts and regional thought-leaders while benefiting from peer-to-peer education. The event will include compelling main stage sessions, travel buyer roundtables, and breakfast sessions, along with “The Big Idea” interactive session where attendees will collectively tackle a topic important to the industry.
