Eight Presidents in One Room

WBTA has had 12 presidents (including the current one) in our 24 year history.  At the Silent Auction event, eight of those 12 were in attendance.  The fact that so many past presidents are still involved with WBTA is a wonderful feat and is just one more reason our Wisconsin chapter continues to be so successful.


The Wisconsin Business Travel Association (WBTA), an official chapter of the Global Business Travel Association, welcomes you.   WBTA is an affiliate of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), whose members represent major corporations and travel suppliers throughout the United States. Along with WBTA, the national organization provides members with information on the latest technical and service advantages within the industry, as well as current legislative issues involving travel costs and safety matters affecting business travel.

Founded in 1990, the Wisconsin Business Travel Association (WBTA) provides an important forum for the exchange of information, education and ideas among its members, who include representatives from local corporations and leading travel industry suppliers. Our emphasis is to work together to better understand new and emerging travel management practices.

WBTA is committed to enhancing the travel profession by sponsoring educational and informational programs for its members, and by providing top-rated speakers to address travel-related issues, concerns and current "hot topic" items. 

Our chapter is an excellent venue for the sharing of travel-related information and professional expertise, and is an organization focused on perfecting the science of business travel management.
