Risky Business – How Government Issues are Impacting You and Your Job

Do you have a “Risk Response” set for legislative issues impacting your travel program? Government Relations is so much more than the politics covered in the news. Government Relations can lead to increased costs, grounded travel and travel policy problems.

The GBTA Government Relations team will give you an inside look of U.S and EU policies, proposals being debated and the impact they could have on business travel. Topics will include the new U.S. Congress, the impact Brexit is having, Canada’s legalization of marijuana and increasing global travel costs across air, hotel and ground transport.

Politics and government relations can be exhausting, yet Instead of just shaking your head and turning the channel, you need to be educated as to how this is impacting your job. Don't be left at the gate.

Shane Downey, Vice President of Government Relations at The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA)

GBTA, the voice of the $1.4 trillion business travel industry, is the world’s largest organization representing this sector and counts among its members more than 9,000 business travel professionals across six different continents.

In addition to serving as the association’s lead lobbyist in Washington, D.C. Shane oversees a countrywide grassroots campaign and the Business Travel PAC. He also leads GBTA’s efforts with EU officials in Brussels. Shane has worked at GBTA for 10 years and he has achieved many legislative successes and worked to raise the profile of GBTA on the Hill and abroad.

Prior to joining GBTA, Shane was a Senior Associate at a lobbying firm in Washington, D.C., and before that Shane worked on several Congressional Campaigns.

Shane received his B.A in History from The Ohio State University. He also served in the U.S. Marine Corp and is a Desert Storm veteran.
