We are thrilled to announce the resumption of in-person NEBTA Chapter Meetings – May 13 at 10:00 AM!  With the increased distribution of vaccines and the slow and measured relaxation of some gathering restrictions, we feel it is important that NEBTA be a leading example to the public of our ability to begin to return to travel, meetings, and events in a safe and effective manner. So, what better topic for our first meeting back – The Return to Business Travel.

Please join us for an interactive, panel discussion on what the return to travel is looking like from different perspectives.  What are the near-term changes, adaptations, and challenges that we are seeing and what can we expect to see more long-term?  Does the relationship between travel buyer and travel supplier change as we emerge out of COVID?  Our panel will discuss these and other topics as well as take questions from the audience. 

Our panelists include:

Paul Swartz, Regional Sales Manager – Greater Washington/DC and New England, American Airlines
David HardjoSuwito, General Manager, Hampton Inn & Suites Boston-Waltham
Anita Salvatore, Senior Vice President and General Manager, CTM
Gary Polito, Travel Manager, MIT Lincoln Laboratory
Donald (DJ) Bowne, Regional Sales Manager, New England, Enterprise Holdings

We hope that you will join us!  We are capping registration at 75 people and will allow a waiting list if we reach capacity.  We urgently request that if you register but cannot make the meeting to please notify us 1-2 days prior so that we can fill your slot with someone on the waiting list.

Please note – registration is required at least 24 hours in advance.  NO WALK-UPS WILL BE ALLOWED.  No payments of any kind will be accepted at the door.  You will be required to answer a COVID-related questionnaire within 24 hours of the meeting.  Temperatures will be taken upon arrival and masks will be required at all times except when actively eating or drinking.

We look forward to seeing everyone soon!  Until then, stay safe and healthy!
