Business Travel On The Road To Recovery

Forecasts, insights and attendance at the recent Global Business Travel Association’s (GBTA) 2021 Convention made it abundantly clear that business travel is on the road to recovery.

Following months of pandemic-related planning, the GBTA’s annual covnetion welcomed more than 3,500 registered professionals from over 20 countries, and featured 170 plus travel industry and expert speakers, 50 education sessions and 200+ exhibitors.

The state of the industry, the future of work, sustainability, diversity, equality and inclusion, and wellness were prominent themes and topics of the convention, mirroring the evolution of the industry.

Suzanne Neufang, CEO, GBTA, observed: “This was certainly a GBTA Convention like no other, in a year that’s been like no other. But what was clear is that we’re getting back to business and getting back to travel.”

Neufang continued: “There were challenges due to the pandemic, but I am delighted to say that the event surpassed our expectations, especially in light of current circumstances. The convention marked a very positive step and we are now looking forward to our next in-person events such as the GBTA Europe in Berlin in December.”
