Over the past few months, the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) staff and leadership has considered "every option possible" to proceed with the association’s 2020 Convention set for November in Denver, CO; however, with the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to spike globally and the Denver Convention Center dedicated to a temporary medical facility, the convention center cannot be made available for November dates and, so, they had to cancel the event.
The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) has appointed current executive director and chief operating officer Scott A. Solombrino as chief executive officer following a unanimous vote by the association’s board of directors.
Under Solombrino’s leadership, GBTA has built upon its strengths by replenishing its financial reserves, refocusing advocacy efforts in the United States and Europe, and strengthening relationships with members and sponsors.
The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), has announced, due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and various state and local restrictions, it will move the dates of the GBTA Convention 2020 to November 7-11, 2020. The annual convention brings together over 7,000 business travel professionals from more than 50 countries across the globe; this year’s GBTA Convention was originally scheduled to take place in Denver on July 25-29, 2020.
