New GBTA Podcast

GBTA Board View: Reflections & Projections

Embrace the essence of what's shaping global business travel today with this podcast featuring insights from GBTA Board buyer and supplier members.

Moderator and Board President, Mark Cuschieri, reflects on the association's key milestones in 2023 and is joined by fellow Board members, Rosemary Maloney and Mike Daly, to discuss and provide insights on what lies ahead for the industry in 2024.

They address emerging trends, topics, and top-of-mind concerns for the industry in the coming year, including:

  • Has business travel reached a "new normal" (and is it time to stop using that phrase)?
  • What's next for sustainability and business travel in 2024?
  • How will AI revolutionize business trips in the coming year – and is the industry ready for it?
  • New Distribution Capability (NDC) momentum – are we there yet?

From the transformative tales of 2023 to the compelling predictions for 2024, tune in to discover where the business travel industry has been and where we're heading together.
