Meeting/lunch 11:15pm – 1:15pm “Risky Business – How government issues are impacting the travel industry.”
Risky Business – How Government Issues are Impacting You and Your Job
Do you have a “Risk Response” set for legislative issues impacting your travel program? Government Relations is so much more than the politics covered in the news. Government Relations can lead to increased costs, grounded travel and travel policy problems.
The GBTA Government Relations team will give you an inside look of U.S and EU policies, proposals being debated and the impact they could have on business travel. Topics will include the new U.S. Congress, the impact Brexit is having, Canada’s legalization of marijuana and increasing global travel costs across air, hotel and ground transport.
Politics and government relations can be exhausting, yet Instead of just shaking your head and turning the channel, you need to be educated as to how this is impacting your job. Don’t be left at the gate.
