The largest business travel event of the year is a must-experience for all those who work in the industry. By combining some of the most passionate, innovative minds in the business travel world with a spectacle that is awe-inspiring, GBTA creates an event that is unlike any other. Don’t know where to begin? Here is our guide on all things GBTA 2019.
Attend Educational Sessions
One of the best parts of the annual GBTA convention is the opportunity to learn from experts of all different walks in the travel industry. With 190 sessions to choose from, it’s possible to feel overwhelmed. But, don’t overload yourself with sessions. Instead, pick a few that really interest you as well as a couple you may know nothing about. By listing required levels of experience on their website, GBTA makes it easy for you to identify topics you may not be as familiar with. All sessions are 30 minutes, making it easy to stay engaged. Looking for some suggestions? Here are some Fox’s top recommendations:
Participate in Conference Events
Outside of educational sessions, you will find an abundance of exciting conference events. From August 3-4, you can attend one of many courses dedicated to your professional development, making you an expert heading into GBTA. Want something with a bit more activity? Join GBTA and American Airlines for the second annual Awareness 5k Run/Walk, along with two of our very own runners, to help raise funds to stop human trafficking with ECPAT. We also encourage you to attend the WINiT Summit 2019 with us, a one-day event that brings together professionals with the sole purpose of positively changing the careers and lives of women in travel-related industries.
Learn more about ECPAT’s mission here and keep an eye out for a Fox announcement regarding ECPAT soon.
This is where you can get the most out of the world’s largest business travel conference. Vendors from across the globe travel to take part in GBTA, giving you the opportunity to meet face to face with those who ensure your travelers journey seamlessly from point A to point B. Make sure to visit the Fox World Travel at Booth #3003, where we’ll be giving away fun swag and chatting about our favorite GBTA experiences.
GBTA is a spectacle you must see to believe. Between all of the networking and events, we suggest you take a few moments to sit back and soak it all in. After all, you won’t find anything quite like this for another year.
