Traveler Experience & Wellbeing

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

10am – 12pm ET

A heightened focus on DEI has propelled companies into action, creating DEI senior leadership positions and establishing key priorities and programs throughout their organizations.  The travel program not only needs ways to support broader initiatives, but also how to address the varied needs across a diverse population of travelers.

Meetings & Events

10am – 12pm ET

The industry excitement for the return of in-person events shows the eagerness to get back on the road and reminds us of the need for personal connections.  The pause the world has experienced forced event planners and organizers to get creative, finding new ways to extend programming beyond those who can attend to reach a broader audience.  With parts of the world still having limited travel, companies continuing to evaluate their policies, and organizers finding value, the virtual and hybrid programming will remain a key tenant for M&E.  How is GBTA preparing for your convention experience?
