Business Travel Hits Highest Levels Since Recession Began

By April 19, 2011 No Comments

Positive news out this week from the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA). This brought a smile to my face and may do the same for you too!

Business travel spending and volume grew at stronger-than-expected rates in Q4 2010 and the GBTA Business Travel Index™ reached its highest level since the recession began in 2008, offering positive signs for the performance of the U.S. economy going forward. In fact, GBTA Foundation research shows that increasing business travel spending is a leading indicator of future job growth – meaning more good news may be ahead on the employment front.
