GBTA will also add a new “All Access” member level that will provide expanded benefits and an annual discount for business travel professionals who want to take advantage of education and networking opportunities at the local, national and global levels. GBTA also formed a San Antonio chapter.
Meeting Professionals International Foundation recently raised more than $170,000 during MPI’s 2014 World Education Congress, setting a new record for the most money raised at an MPI conference.
