Event Registration Opens
The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA)—the voice of the global business travel industry—today announced high-tech entrepreneur and best-selling author Michael Saylor as a keynote speaker at the prestigious GBTA Masters Program being held at the Mandarin Hotel in Washington, D.C., February 20-21, 2013.
Under Saylor's leadership, MicroStrategy has exceeded expectations. Since 1998, MicroStrategy's annual revenues have grown from $96 million to $351 million. The company and its leadership have received numerous awards and accolades over the years, including a spot on the Forbes 200 Best Small Companies.
In June 2012, Saylor published his first book, The Mobile Wave: How Mobile Intelligence Will Change Everything, a ground-breaking analysis of the impact of mobile intelligence. His book argues that the changes brought about by mobile computing are so far-reaching and widespread that it's nearly impossible for us to comprehend, even though we are fully immersed in it.
"GBTA is extremely pleased to have Michael Saylor join as a keynote speaker for the 2013 Masters Program. Saylor is a brilliant visionary who has helped transform our digital world. It is work like his that makes business travel so seamlessly possible.
