What the Industry Expects Next: Insights from the GBTA Q1 2023 Business Travel Outlook Poll

The GBTA Research Team − Chris Ely, Research Director, and Mark Sharoff, Research Manager – provide more insights and analysis around GBTA’s Q1 2023 Business Travel Outlook Poll in a sit-down interview with Debbie Iannaci, head of Communications, Public Relations and Research at GBTA.

Based on poll data collected across global travel buyers, suppliers and other industry stakeholders, the discussion focuses on year-over-year changes anticipated in business travel volume and spending; how recession threat is − or isn’t − impacting the industry; and the nuances of travel growth across sectors. In terms of other back-to-business-travel developments, the trio also explores timely topics including changes to travel policy and approval processes; outlook for increased staffing and re-building workforces in the travel industry; and the sentiment around business travel and China.
