Partners

The BTA industry partnership is a progressive and collective relationship programme that allows for cross industry collaboration and the enabling of debate, discussion and solution resolution across all sectors of the business travel industry. Through partnership with the BTA, our members work with our industry partners to support and promote their key business, marketing and strategic objectives.


BTA partners experience unique access and networking opportunities with our

TMC members and the BTA Board, through a multi layered annual conferences and events calendar


The BTA actively encourages all industry partners to share their voice in the wider needs and issues that impact the whole business travel sector.


Partnership deliveries multiple opportunities to commission and access industry surveys, reports and whitepapers, giving a unique perspective and insight on markets and the latest developments in the business travel industry.


Collectively BTA members represent over 90% of UK managed business travel, £10 + billion in revenues and over 32 million transactions a year.

Industry Opportunity


Through the strategic development and objectives of the BTA to promote the business travel sector as a driver for economic growth, industry partners gain access alongside members, to share a considerable voice with all levels of government to collectively improve the business travel experience. 

The BTA strives to improve products and services for the business traveller, to remove barriers for trade for all businesses and to encourage and promote entrepreneurs to focus on the sector . We look to achieve this in collaboration with our industry partners and offer a unique opportunity to share in the BTA goals for the overall benefit of the industry.

The BTA is active in promoting career opportunities and personal development across multiple disciplines in business travel and gives industry partners the opportunity to be involved in the BTA's initiatives in academia, in the BTA training diploma's in business travel and in developing the next generation and rising stars in our industry. 

Representation


As the representative association for the business travel community and TMC's, we work with our industry partners, members and key industry stakeholders to collectively resolve industry wide issues and to raise the profile of the business travel sector.

We lobby government on all issues that impact our industry and the business traveller, including taxation, sustainability, infra structure, industry affairs, regulation and legislation. We ensure that local, regional and national government understand the economic value of business travel to the UK and promote business travel as an investment to develop trade and shareholder value.

Mel Phaure
"Just a quick note to say again what a great job you and the team did yesterday, it was a great event.Having organised events many times before I know there’s a direct relationship between the amount of preparation and how smoothly the event goes and I thought yesterday was proof of that"

John O'Sullivan
"I just wanted to send our huge thanks for organising the Air Matters Conference on Tuesday, it really was a superb day.  Having been in the industry for nearly 36 years you tend to think that you know pretty much  all there is to know about Travel but of course that is never the case as we learn something new nearly every day in our ever changing  industry " and that was certainly the case with Tuesday’s Speakers"

Carol Newton
"Being a member of the BTA is of great benefit to Gray Dawes. The opportunity for networking whilst working together to represent the voice of the business traveller gives us the ability to collectively influence change in the marketplace"

Jackie Lacey

Mark Plowright
"Every element of the annual BTA conference at Powerscourt Estate in Ireland last year was exceptional.  It was the first time I’d attended the event and I was struck by the fantastic line up of speakers, their depth of knowledge and the very honest and open debate around issues that our industry is facing."
