The Business of Travel

Welcome to GBTA's official podcast covering all things business travel!

Dec 1, 2023

The intent of this podcast is to educate our membership on the Human Trafficking in Canada from a Meeting Professional, Accommodation and law enforcement perspective in Canada. We will define human trafficking and outline who is at risk from whom and where. We will outline the key sectors that HT is found and what steps travelers can take to help and initiatives in place to improve the situation. We will review Canadian legislation around HT and how that can help. We review what types of questions that travel managers can add to their RFPs to ensure suppliers are getting onboard. Brought to you by the Canadian Transportation and Rick Committees   

The Business of Travel Podcast is your ultimate guide to navigating the ever-evolving realm of business travel. Each week, a new episode hosted by seasoned corporate travel professionals presents an engaging and enlightening exploration of key topics shaping the world of business travel today.
