Over the past few months, GBTA staff and leadership have explored every option possible to proceed with the association’s 2020 Convention set for November in Denver, Colorado. That said, with the COVID-19 pandemic continuing to spike globally and the Denver Convention Center dedicated to a temporary medical facility, the convention center cannot be made available to us for our November dates so they have had to cancel our event.

We understand that this decision may come as a disappointment to you exactly as it has to each of us, as we, too, very much look forward to what annually represents “The Business Travel Event of the Year®.” One of the unfortunate realities of this pandemic and its many accompanying challenges has been its outsized impact on business travel and our industry worldwide. We, too, had looked forward to reconnecting this year at GBTA Convention 2020, to draw strength from one another and to share best practices and creative, collaborative ideas for how to succeed in such an unprecedented and challenging environment.

We thank you for your continued support of GBTA. Each of you represents the heart and soul of this association. These are indeed difficult times, but together we will emerge not merely intact, but better than at any time in the past.
