The Business of Travel

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

May 23, 2018

For this week’s episode, The Business of Travel, talks all things GDPR. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is set to go into effect this Friday, May 25, 2018. First up, Ed Barrett, GBTA’s chief marketing officer, talks about what GDPR is, how it impacts organizations and details GBTA’s steps toward GDPR compliance.

Next on the podcast, Hannah Jaffe, GBTA research analyst, shares data from a joint research project with Cvent designed to gauge how professionals in the travel, meetings and events industries are feeling about GDPR and their companies’ readiness. She also shares insight from the research on what travel professionals are currently doing around GDPR and best practices for compliance in a post-GDPR world.
