A Different View Agenda

A Different View is the first flagship event in the BTA's 2020 calendar and will bring together our members, industry partners, speakers, panelists and guests together to look at the new decade from a different perspective.

This years Conference promises to deliver again on the core values of the BTA community, with exceptional industry content across a broad spectrum of subjects, from political, economic, social and environmental issues, to specific sessions on aviation and ground transportation. 

Our theme this year following 2018's "What's Next?" is "A Different View" which gives our speakers and panelists a great opportunity to deliver insight and knowledge around developments and initiatives that will impact on us all over the coming months and years. From customer service to aviation, ground transport to crime 'A Different View' will explore how business travel will be impacted over the next decade. 

We look forward to welcoming you to the Congress Centre on 30th January.
