GBTA and Worldwide ERC to Bring Business Travel and Workplace Insights to APAC

In a world where business is constantly changing, delivering the best experiences for companies and their employees is paramount − but more challenging than ever. That’s why for the first time, GBTA and Worldwide ERC, the world’s leading association for professionals engaged in global talent mobility, are working together to co-locate our respective conferences for the Asia-Pacific region.

Taking place on September 19-20 at the Shangri-La Singapore, the co-located events will provide a unique gathering opportunity where business travel, meetings management, and mobility relocation professionals will be able to connect, innovate and learn about the region’s return to travel and new products and services, all under one roof. Each conference runs separately but attendees will have access to select content and sessions from both programs for increased value and networking.

“Serving the needs of companies and their teams in a changing world is a mission shared by GBTA and Worldwide ERC − whether it involves moving people for business travel or for global mobility and relocation. We are very excited to team up with Worldwide ERC to bring greater value to attendees of our individual conferences by creating this broader opportunity for learning and networking through our co-located events in APAC,” said Suzanne Neufang, CEO, GBTA.

The GBTA APAC Conference 2023-Singapore will bring together the APAC business travel community to network, learn from industry experts and regional thought-leaders while benefiting from peer-to-peer education. For more information and to register, visit here.
