It’s that time again. GBTA Convention 2015 kicks off this Saturday, July 25th in Orlando! GBTA’s overarching theme for this year’s event is #Sharing and many of the topics of discussion will center around the sharing economy, the future of distribution and more. The world of business travel is rapidly changing through technology, media, new generations entering the workforce, etc. We know there will be some lively and thought-provoking discussions around these topics at this year’s convention.

Attendees will also be excited to hear from keynote speakers like Woz (Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak), Fox News’ Megyn Kelly, and everyone’s favorite film and stage star named after a popular breakfast item, Kevin Bacon.

But that’s not even scratching the surface of what awaits you at GBTA this year.
