Corporate travel is one of the largest controllable expenses within an organization and also a uniquely complex category. Finding the balance between corporate financial goals, policy compliance, traveler safety and traveler satisfaction is a problem other business categories do not face. GBTA’s mission is to provide our members the tools and knowledge necessary to navigate and improve their corporate travel program. Through GBTA’s education, events, research and advocacy, our commitment is to advance and enhance the effectiveness of the corporate travel industry and the members we serve.
