About Southern Africa and Africa
GBTA Southern Africa is the first buyer-led South African business travel and meetings network, created through the merger of ITMSA and GBTA. GBTA Southern Africa is a chapter of the non-profit company GBTA Africa and provides the best possible support, information and opportunities to enable members to achieve best practice in managing travel spend effectively and to maximise the profitability of their organisations.
The network ensures for the first time that business travel and meeting professionals with a Africa or Southern Africa remit have access to the best education and training, research, benchmarking tools and events through the collective voice of a professional, buyer-led community representing nearly two thousand buyer and supplier subscribers. Our aim is to enable members to manage their travel spend effectively and to maximise their contribution to the profitability of their organisation.
GBTA Africa and Southern Africa promote awareness that efficient and effective travel management not only needs good planning and negotiating skills but also a keen knowledge of current trends and products available in the inter-related sectors of air, ground transportation and hotel accommodation.
