The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) announced GBTA Canada’s inaugural Energy, Resources & Marine Travel Symposium, 2014, Calgary. A first for Canada, this symposium will take place on June 25 at the WestJet Campus in Calgary, Alberta.
A highly specialized day of networking and learning, this event will focus on those who are responsible for managing their company’s business travel or supplying travel services within this specialized sector. Delegates will hear from industry professionals on both the buyer-side and supplier-side in a series of sessions designed to tackle the unique logistics of air, accommodations, ground and risk within Canada’s oil, gas, energy and resources industry.
“After the tremendous successes experienced by GBTA’s global regions with the implementation of the Energy, Resources & Marine Travel Symposium in recent years, GBTA is pleased to be able to offer this platform in the Canadian marketplace” said Nancy Tudorache, director operations, Canada, GBTA. “This is an opportunity for travel buyers within this specialized sector to pull together, exchange thoughts and ideas and identify best practices and industry specific travel products to enhance their business travel programs. As Canada’s voice of business travel, it only makes sense that GBTA Canada be the first to provide this opportunity to our members and the Canadian industry.”
The Energy, Resources & Marine Travel Symposium, 2014 Calgary is geared to those buyers who manage travel within their companies in this sector. As such, GBTA Canada has created a buyer-led task force to develop and shape the symposium from the perspective of the travel buyer. Members on this taskforce include buyer representatives from Canadian Natural Resources Limited, Cenovus Energy, Enerflex, Agrium and Nexen Energy.
“As a member of GBTA Canada’s Education Committee, I’m excited to be involved in this buyer-led taskforce and contribute to both the content and agenda for the Energy, Resources & Marine Travel Symposium in Calgary,” said Kelly Ewasiuk, director, Transportation and Field Solutions, Cenovus Energy Inc. “It is important to me to be able to continually improve on my ability to support Cenovus Energy in the area of travel & transportation logistics. My involvement in this symposium has provided me with the opportunity to share vital information with my travel buyer peers in our highly regulated, safety conscious industry.”
