As a former GBTA President and CEO, I get very excited and anxious around this time of year, as many professionals in our industry get ready to attend the annual GBTA event.

Whether you’re a buyer or supplier, there’s plenty to see and do at one of the largest business travel conferences in the industry. And with more than 1,000 buyers and an expected attendance of about 6,000 industry professionals, attendees will have their pick of educational sessions, certification sessions, and some exceptional general session speakers — including renowned actor Kevin Bacon, technology icon Steve Wozniak and TV news anchor Megyn Kelly.

Lanyon will be well-represented this year, with several of our executives participating in education sessions — including yours truly! Please join us at our sessions — I promise that you’ll experience thought leadership content that’s relevant and meaningful for your work, whether you’re a buyer or supplier. Here’s a quick reference list of our sessions:

Jeff Hillenmayer — “GBTA Hotel RFP Format – A Hands-on Introduction for Buyers that Are Considering or Are New to the Format,” Mon. July 27| 11:30 am - 12:30 pm | 304EF

Dan Wiser — “Keep Calm and Save On,” Mon. July 27| 10:00 am - 11:00 am | 304CD

Kevin Iwamoto — “Trends in Meetings, Events and Travel Consolidation” Mon. July 27| 10:00 am - 11:00 am | 311CD

Kevin Iwamoto — “Meetings Technology - Commercial-Free Discussion and Answers” Tue. July 28| 10:00 am - 11:00 am | 308CD

Of course, there’s also the humungous trade show — where Lanyon will be on full display at Booth 1709. Come check out our new branding, as well as the latest release of the Lanyon Smart Events Cloud. And if you’re a buyer member, you’ll have an opportunity to get a professional-quality headshot, courtesy of Lanyon. Spots are limited — so please make sure you check it out early and get in line for your photo opportunity!

Lastly, I’m looking forward to seeing so many industry friends — congratulating outgoing President Donna Kelliher and several Board members on their successful terms served as the GBTA Board leaders.   And of course, I can’t wait to see all of you!
