The Partnership Council is a group of single representatives from each of GBTA Europe’s partners. Its role is to guide the network to ensure it works in the interests of Europe’s regional partners and their members/subscribers, and to ensure the mutual co-operation of all partners for the benefit of all.

The European Advocacy Group is a group of single, buyer or association leadership representatives from each GBTA Europe Partner Association.

Our objectives are:

  • To be recognised by European Governments and the corporate travel industry as the voice of Corporate Travel & Meetings in Europe and the ‘Go To’ organisation when a key issue is to be discussed, arises or requires comment.
  • To support partner association activity on national government basis.
  • To deliver additional value add to our buyer members by representing them and challenging any activity we believe is not in their interest.
  • To support and co-ordinate with the global efforts of GBTA on industry affairs activity.
  • To communicate our advocacy efforts and positions to our GBTA European members.
