The value of hosting the GBTA convention
“Success in Every Direction” is the theme of this year’s GBTA Convention in Boston. With the many exhibits and exciting keynote speakers this is an event not to miss. As ETS International is hosting two events on Monday we are at the center of the action. Whether you are a buyer or a supplier there will be information to take you miles ahead of where you are.
From politics to comedy there are amazing keynote speakers at the GBTA Convention in Boston. Former President Bill Clinton, Former President George W. Bush and “Saturday Night Live” Weekend Update anchor Seth Meyers have been named as keynote speakers. These three men know how to plot a course and see it through. You will be charmed, you will laugh and you will learn.
If you are wondering where your company is going you should take some time to attend the Luminaries of Travel Panel on Tuesday, July 24th. David Crush of Virgin America, Barney Harford of Orbitz Worldwide, Luis Maroto of Amadeus and Arne M. Sorenson of Marriot International will be speaking about sustainability, technological advances and the future of travel.
The value of the GBTA is not the keynote speakers but the exhibits on the convention floor. Networking with other companies is a key component of the travel business. Here you will finally get to meet people that perhaps you have only emailed or spoken with. You will be able to pick the brain of people that you know are making smart business moves.
You should seize this chance to grow in the transportation business by expanding your fleet of connections. Over the course of July 21st through the 25th your business can make great strides. You may see things on the convention floor that never crossed your mind about running your company. You may see cross networking promotion opportunities or see an idea used on a plane that would be great for a professional driver of a limo.
Of course, when you are attending the GBTA Convention you want to be sure that you arrive on time everywhere you need to be. Trusting a Boston local such as ETS International will allow you to get to and from your hotel with ease and in style. While you are in the car be sure to chat up the driver about where to get the best sandwich and how Boston has shaped the industry. With all the roundabouts in Boston an ETS professional can surely tell you stories about how to steer clear of obstacles and stay on course.
Matching the faces of our clients with the names we know so well is just part of the value of hosting the GBTA convention.
