We are excited to be attending and presenting at GBTA Canada 2017 , the largest business travel event held in Canada. Held in Toronto from May 23-25, the 3-day conference is packed full of industry panels, round table education sessions, keynote speakers, and an enhanced Expo featuring exhibitors from all areas of the travel world.
Conference highlights include keynote speeches by Julie Payette, Canada’s first astronaut to participate in a mission to construct the International Space Station and by The Right Honourable Jean Chrétien, Canada’s Prime Minister from 1993-2003.
We are especially pleased to attend this gathering of business travel professionals as a participant in one of the Education Sessions, as well as an exhibitor during the Expo. You’ll find us at Booth 88.
Education Round Table Participant
Our CEO, Ian Benson, will participate in a round-table discussion as part of the conference’s Education Sessions. The session, titled “Beyond Traditional: Cost Management in the 21st Century”, will cover non-traditional tools and technologies that offer cost-savings for company’s travel programs.
Benson will discuss how cell phone technology and wireless communications play a significant role in today’s business travel and how it can impact a company’s T&E budget. He will share telecom programs that offer significant cost savings, as well as provide secure and reliable communications for corporations that have both domestic and international travel divisions.
Other representatives of the sharing community – Airbnb, Uber, Park N Fly, Dinova, and Beck Taxi – will join Benson for this lively discussion.
The round table is offered Thursday, May 25, from 2:30-3:30. A complete description of the session is available here.
If you are attending GBTA Canada, we’d love to see you at the round table!
