Partnerships

GBTA SA is a travel buyer led community of business travel professionals who encourage dialogue and learning through a series of relevant and strategic educational events.  Underpinning these events whether virtual or in-person, is encouraging beneficial relationships amongst all business travel professionals empowering both the Buyer and Supplier community.

In order for us to deeply engage with this community the GBTA SA has to deliver content driven initiatives.  This has the potential to attract the greater community and bring them to our platforms which in turn, attracts our partner community. 

The better content we provide, the greater numbers we will attract and with those numbers our sponsors will see the value. 

A significant sponsorship budget affords us the opportunity to source better content which attracts our community. 

This momentum will sustain our purpose.
