CWT at the GBTA Convention, San Diego

Let's rewrite the rules of business travel and meetings & events

August 14-17, 2022

San Diego Convention Center

Meet with us

Register for the event

Everyone is talking about getting ‘back to travel’ and ‘back to events’, to meet up in person again post-pandemic. And while that is very much the vibe of this year’s GBTA Convention in San Diego, getting to grips with the new ‘rules’ is not easy. We are decoding these rules and helping travel and event managers navigate through to a new normal for themselves, their organization, and their people.

First, register for the Global Business Travel Association Convention and then you can book a meeting with CWT (find us at stand 2121).
