Ovation is once again sponsoring the Relaxation Lounge, which includes complimentary massages for attendees, at the annual Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) convention. GBTA Convention 2018 will be held at the San Diego Convention Center. Ovation will also be participating in the event’s annual GBTA Broadcast Studio, a series of video interviews with travel industry leaders which will be featured on screens throughout the Convention Center and in GBTA’s On Demand videos available through the Convention app and visible to all 7,000+ attendees and registered media. The world’s largest business travel event, the annual GBTA Convention brings together thousands of business travel managers and industry suppliers to share insights, introduce products and review current trends.

Located in Lobby D of the Convention Center, the Relaxation Lounge sponsored by Ovation gives GBTA attendees a place to unwind and enjoy a massage. At the Relaxation Lounge, Ovation will also be giving away two domestic roundtrip airline tickets.

The Relaxation Lounge sponsored by Ovation will be open the following hours:

  • Sunday, August 12 from 9:00am to 4:00pm
  • Monday, August 13 from 8:30am to 1:00pm
  • Tuesday, August 14 from 9:00am to 1:00pm
  • Wednesday, August 15 from 12:00pm to 1:30pm

While at the event, Ovation’s Executive Vice President, Michael Steiner, will be featured in the GBTA Broadcast Studio one-on-one interview series.

“Ovation has had a number of exciting announcements in 2018, from acquiring a London-based agency and thereby opening our first wholly-owned location outside of the U.S., to bringing on new senior management in the UK and US, and investing in advanced point of sale and reporting technologies for our clients,” said Mr. Steiner, whose GBTA Broadcast Studio interview will focus on the overall advancements being made in travel management. “Ovation’s focus has always been on providing bespoke solutions, and raising the bar for service delivery. Over the past 18 months, we’ve had great success combining our service platform with powerful automation covering important technologies from mobile, to expense integration and risk management.”
