On February 22, 2019 in GBTA Podcast by Colleen Gallagher
On today’s episode of The Business of Travel, we take a look at GDPR – the General Data Protection Regulation that went into effect in the EU on May 25, 2018. The legislation has a goal of strengthening the collection, transfer and protection of data of EU citizens.
First up, GBTA Senior Research Analyst Mark Sharoff talks through GBTA research, conducted in partnership with Cvent, looking into concerns travel professionals and meetings planners had around GDPR before the deadline and what concerns remained after the deadline passed.
Next, Kevin Iwamoto, senior vice president for GoldSpring Consulting, joins us on the podcast to discuss the impact of GDPR in the travel and meetings world, and how he expects it will continue to play out throughout 2019.
