Companies Expect Ongoing International Travel Disruption Resulting From Revised Travel Ban

Published on : Thursday, March 9, 2017

GBTAThe Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), the voice of the global business travel industry, polled its U.S. and European members this week to assess the business travel impact of President Trump’s revised executive order on travel.

 

Nearly 4 in 10 (37 percent) U.S. business travel professionals expect some level of reduction in their company’s travel because of the revised executive order. Even more European travel professionals felt this way with 47 percent expecting some level of reduction in business travel for their company. Additionally, 17 percent of European travel professionals reported that their company has already cancelled business travel to the United States because of the executive orders issued.

 

Thirty-eight percent of European business travel professionals said their company’s would be less willing to send business travelers to the United States in the future because of the executive order and 45 percent indicated their company will be less willing to plan future meetings and events in the United States.

 

“There is always the risk that closing our borders sends the message that the United States is closed for business, and the results of this poll show the perception of the United States as a welcoming destination for business travel has been altered,” said Michael W. McCormick. “As we always say, security is paramount, but GBTA continues to be a proponent for expanding proven security programs and developing new technology to facilitate information-sharing among governments to ensure travelers are always vetted properly, making us all more safe and secure.”
