A thriving business travel industry is critical for a booming economy. GBTA launched our “Ready.Safe.Travel.” campaign to push for a safe return to business travel through advocacy, education, and awareness. To do our part in that effort, GBTA and VDR are bringing together our industry at GBTA Conference 2022 – Berlin in Partnership with VDR.
The health and safety of our employees and attendees are a priority. The venue, service providers, and GBTA are working together to take reasonable precautions to follow any ECDC or local government guidelines for health and safety at events. GBTA will continue to monitor these safety guidelines.

The business travel community has always stood together.
It is important now, more than ever, that we come together to design and devise new strategies to restart our industry. The heart of our industry’s growth is the value of our relationships. Whether you’re a Buyer or a Supplier, it is by innovating together that will save our industry.
