GBTA VDR 2020 - About

Learn about the conference experience. 

How would you define today’s corporate travel buyer?

Is it someone who manages the travel experience for their organisation’s employees? Do they micromanage every aspect of transportation and accommodations for their travellers? Are they also involved in the planning and execution of corporate meetings and events? And how has this role changed over the past year? Decade? Century?

All that is certain is that the role of the travel buyer has evolved.

Tomorrow’s travel professionals are being defined by emerging technologies which have transformed the modern managed travel experience. Every day, new roles and responsibilities are created for travel buyers—to include procurement, human resources, security/risk mitigation and meetings management.  New security risks have altered the very identity of the travel professional, who must now factor current geopolitical issues into consideration.
