Welcome to The 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.

save The Date for 2021 Events

The PBTA will continue to adapt to the new 'normal' this year.

To start the year, we will look to have virtual meetings in an effort to try and maintain our goal of addressing current hot topics in the business travel industry.  Our hope is that we will be able to have in-person meetings later this year (and are already planning one for September).

Below is a tentative list of the events for 2021.  Please continue to check our website for updates!
