Texas Education Day Sponsor Packages

Dear Business Travel Partners,

The Austin Chapter within the Global Business Travel Association is an organization whose members represent corporate travel and meetings executives, major corporations and travel suppliers throughout the world. The GBTA Austin Chapter, along with the global organization, provides members with information on travel and meeting technology, services, legislation, security, bench marking and costs that all affect the business travel and meetings industry.

Next March 5-6, 2020, the GBTA- Austin Chapter will have the honor of hosting GBTA’s Annual Texas Education Day (TED) which draws 250+ Travel Professionals from Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Dallas-Fort Worth and throughout the country to our remarkable city.

This year, we’ll be taking a deep dive into the new decade of travel with our theme: 2020- An Investigative look into Business Travel.

During these two days, our colleagues will explore the ever-changing elements of business travel, technology enhancements and assess risk and security concerns through education, seminars and networking.

New this year, we will start on Thursday, March 5th at 4:30pm with a main session keynote and kick off and it will roll into the opening reception shortly after. By doing so, the goal will be to be end our conference by 3pm on Friday, March 6th allowing our attendees to get on the road without missing any valuable content. Thus, providing more opportunity for you to interact with your current and prospective clients.

As you can envision, this is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your products and services to a distinct group of buyers and suppliers in the Travel industry.  The attendees include corporate travel managers and buyers from companies all over Texas and around the world, hoteliers, car rental and airline representatives, travel agencies, travel technology companies as well as other companies and their representatives within the travel industry.  

GBTA Austin Chapter is pleased to offer these exciting opportunities for you and your business to highlight your company’s services to this distinguished group. Come join us as we take an Investigative look into Business Travel!
