We look forward to joining nearly 7,000 business travel professionals from all over the world to connect with the trends and technology impacting the travel industry today. This year will be unlike any other so let’s take a look at some of the exciting things you can expect from Sabre during the conference.

Stop by our newly renovated exhibit booth #1125 to learn how Sabre is driving innovation across corporate travel. Our solutions extend your program’s reach and efficiencies such as enabling personalized travel experiences to intelligent virtual payments and data analytics. We’re providing the opportunity for customers to experience our products first-hand, network with Sabre employees, as well as learn more about upcoming enhancements to our portfolio.

For the first time at GBTA, we’ll feature the industry’s leading airline data and contract management solution. Prism Avion helps travel buyers by intelligently aggregating data from across all points of sale globally, giving them a holistic view of their air program. With this insight, customers can more accurately measure contract performance as well as uncover new cost savings opportunities within their air program.

We’re pleased to announce that Sabre along with the GBTA Research Foundation will be unveiling a new comprehensive look at the role of the travel manager, where it is today and, more importantly, where it is headed in the future. This research is a continuation of a similar study conducted in 2014 that explored the overall value of the travel manager along with how their role impacts their organization both financially as well as in other ways.

The most recent study, Travel Manager 2020 – Foundational Shifts in the Role of the Travel Manager, focuses primarily on the future of the role. Most specifically, how their role will evolve over the next three to five years and what steps are needed to be successful especially as key factors such as technology, mobility and data continue to shape the travel industry. Join Sabre as we explore this research during the GBTA education session, The Evolving Role of the Travel Manager, on Tuesday, July 28 and stop by the Sabre booth #1125 for more information.

In the spirit of transformation, Sabre has joined up with LinkedIn to provide attendees with a new professional headshot for their LinkedIn profile. Make sure to schedule your appointment at the Sabre booth! Since this year’s theme at GBTA is all about #Sharing, don't forget to share your new headshot on Twitter by using the #GBTA2015 hashtag and tagging @Sabre_Corp.
