Welcome to PBTA

The Philadelphia Business Travel Association (PBTA), an official Chapter of the Global Business Travel Association, was founded in 2001 and became a Chapter in 2018. PBTA provides an important forum for the exchange of information, education and ideas among its members, who include representatives from corporations who buy or procure travel on behalf of their company employees and travel industry suppliers who sell their services. Our emphasis is on working together to better understand new and emerging travel management practices and improve the travel industry through advocacy.
