GBTA VDR 2021 - Partner Associations

Partner Associations

GBTA in Europe is built on a network of established European association partners who abide by the same principles:

Not For Profit

Profits are used to further the aims of the associations rather than being paid to shareholders.

Buyer Leadership

Each partner association is run by a board with a buyer majority and a buyer chairman/president.

Common Purpose

We aim to provide education, research, events and professional development to travel and meeting professionals.

Experts in their Field

Each partner association knows their local markets intimately, so the combination of partners allows any network member to get the most detailed local market information.

Membership Associations

Either as individuals or as companies, in order to be a part of GBTA in Europe you must belong to a partner association if they operate in your country of residence. 

Membership with GBTA

Individual GBTA membership allows unlimited access to the GBTA Hub and resources that provide the tools, network, education and training to develop your skills and knowledge.

Join Through a Partner Association

To join GBTA if you reside in a country where we have a partner association, you must be a member of that partner association.

Many of our partners include membership of GBTA in their own membership packages. If you are a member of a partner association, either check with the association or begin the registration process to view the cost, if any, of GBTA membership. Note, all memberships of partner associations are verified.


Join Directly

If you reside in a country where we currently do not have a partner association, you can join GBTA directly. Members from France can join via GBTA France Chapter. Members from Italy can join via GBTA Italy Chapter.
