Digital trends, constant connectivity and mobile technologies – including Wi-Fi, travel apps and digital wallets – are transforming business travelers’ experience around the globe and in our own backyard.

The Global Business Travel Association - Virginia Chapter invites you to our Bi-Annual Education Symposim, designed to challenge and educate today's Corporate Travel Professional. Our goal is to provide content that helps attendees develop new strategies that innovate, motivate and energize themselves and those around them. 

We have assembled a dynamic group of speakers that will offer insights on recent digital trends from all business travel industry verticals. Join us to learn: What’s trending? What is next? How do we keep up with the Business Traveler? How do we prepare our travelers and our companies for new risks? And how do we manage effectively through change and adapt services to meet evolving demands?

This forward looking event will be held at the Newport News Marriott at City Center, Thursday, January 21, 2016, with our Annual Business Travel Industry Panel from 5:30pm - 8:00pm on the evening of January 20th, 2016.
