Why Join GBTA

We believe business travel is a fundamental force for good. Meeting face to face deepens relationships, fosters collaboration, and develops culture in ways that technology alone can never truly replicate. It drives progress for businesses, governments, economies, and people.

As the barriers and challenges facing business travel evolve and change, we must continue to innovate and set new standards as an industry, bringing many perspectives together under one roof. GBTA is the platform for all sides to come together to tackle how travel can adapt to and drive dynamic transformations in the workplace, from the changing way people work, to new attitudes towards managing risk, to improving sustainability.
