The Trazees And GBTA Recap

Nov 4, 2015
2015

The Global Traveler team took it back to The Roaring Twenties with friends and colleagues at our yearly reception to celebrate the annual Global Business Travel Association convention. Held at the brand-new, speakeasy-style Itta Bena in Orlando, Fla., GT hosted the event in conjunction with co-sponsor Meliá Hotels International.

There was more than one reason to celebrate this year, as we also honored the inaugural winners of The Trazees, the awards distributed by GT’s sister web publication, trazeetravel.com. Acceptees from a number of award-winning travel providers joined us on behalf of their companies and to celebrate another successful year in the industry.

Trazee Travel is dedicated to all things travel for travelers aged 18–35. Updated daily, the Web publication covers trends, products, tips and so much more in the world of travel. Nominations for the inaugural awards were accepted via online ballot and from trazeetravel.com’s intrepid contributors. A committee of select FX Express Publications, Inc., management selected the final winners.

“This year proved to be another successful GBTA convention,” said Francis X. Gallagher, publisher and CEO, Global Traveler. “As we announced the launch of trazeetravel.com at last year’s show, we thought it only fitting to honor the inaugural The Trazees winners at this year’s event. We all had a great time celebrating the successes of our partners at the incredible, 1920s-themed Itta Bena, a must-visit in Orlando.”

This year marked the 47th annual Global Business Travel Association convention, with more than 6,000 attendees from hotels, airlines, travel companies and corporate travel departments. The 48th annual convention will be held in Denver in July 2016.

Indulge in the Seductive Splendor Bora Bora

I had just taken off my sandals, stepping onto the white-sand beach for a late-morning walk to a secluded spot I heard about from a front desk clerk, when I glanced down and saw the time on my phone. It had just turned 11 a.m., which meant it was only 7 am back home, the perfect time to call and say good morning to by husband before he left for work. Not quite ready to head back to my room, I decided I’d test the WiFi signal and made the call as I continued walking toward the shoreline.
