ICYMI: Putting Safety First at Convention 2021 and Beyond

As we enter the last quarter of 2021, we are seeing the return of busy weeks for business travel, despite the slight "detour" the Delta variant had caused in recovery. Many events are welcoming business travelers in person, including GBTA's Convention in Orlando this November. It's still a challenge to travel, balancing different policies and practices between countries in Europe or in North America. However, many people have more positive predictions for the future of business travel in a post-pandemic world.
