NATIONAL BUSINESS TRAVEL ASSOCIATION

About NBTA

NBTA connects the business travel world and promotes the value of business travel management.

Travel costs typically represent a company's second or third-largest controllable expense.   And just as business travel is closely linked to the U.S. economy, so is professional business travel management linked to the achievement of a company's goals and objectives. 

The authoritative voice of the business travel community is the National Business Travel Association, representing over 2,500 corporate travel managers and travel service providers who collectively manage and direct more than $170 billion of expenditures within the business travel industry, primarily for Fortune 1000 companies. 

NBTA is the source for critical information on the business travel industry.

For more than 35 years, the association has dedicated itself to the professional development of its members and the advancement of the business travel management community through advocacy, education and training, and networking opportunities. 

Through the efforts of its member committees and professional staff, NBTA monitors developments in the business travel field and provides time-sensitive research and critical industry information.  The association also takes the industry's story to the media and the public, and represents the industry's interests on Capitol Hill.  Committed to the advancement of the business travel profession, NBTA offers numerous education and training opportunities and holds an annual International Convention and Exposition. 

NBTA acts as the parent organization of 45 US chapters that provide regionally specific services to their members and work to support the business travel industry at the grass-roots level.  NBTA works to provide benefits and services to Canadian business travel professionals through the Canadian Alliance of Business Travel.  The association also focuses on global outreach through the Paragon Partnership, a strategic international alliance with business travel associations representing countries in Australasia, Europe, North American and South America.
