GBTA Coronavirus Statement, News, and Resources

GBTA is a global association with operations on six continents and members throughout the world. We are very aware of the impact that the coronavirus (COVID-19) is having on the entire business travel and meetings industry.

GBTA will continue to monitor COVID-19 until the medical community says the virus has been contained. Our main concern is on the health and safety of our global members and program participants. We encourage our members to follow the travel restrictions set in place where they reside and if traveling, when they arrive at their destination. We encourage all to practice preventative measures such as those outlined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

GBTA also encourages all members and attendees of our global events to check out the following resources to keep up to date with the coronavirus.
