Welcome to the
Bay Area Business Travel Association!


Our Mission

The Bay Area Business Travel Association’s programs are designed to further the understanding of corporate travel management practices and trends. BABTA provides opportunities for corporate (direct) travel suppliers and purchasers to share perspectives on pertinent industry topics. Membership criteria help maintain an equal balance between the two groups, thereby providing views from all vantage points.
Founded in 1975, the organization has over 200 members from different locations in the San Francisco Bay Area, representing firms in all types of business: manufacturing, insurance, utilities, banking, computer hardware and software, biotechnology, law and construction. BABTA is affliated with the Global Business Travel Association.

Happy New Year! From your BABTA President - Greg Sweeney

Create your story for 2016 - BABTA!

As 2015 closes and our opportunities open for 2016; I want to take the time to “Thank” everyone that is part of BABTA. From our Board members, to our membership and administration. If it weren't for you, there would be no BABTA.

BABTA has grown over our 40 years! We are one big family of 200 plus members and if we come together we can help improve ourselves and each other!

I shared with you my personal story and involvement with BABTA and how it helped me in my career path professional and personally…I want to hear your personal stories and the success through BABTA in 2016!

I challenge each member to get more involved to obtain the most you can out of your organization and participate in changing the way BABTA provides valuable resources and opportunities for you to grow in the travel industry.

We have lots of talented members and opportunities to show your talents from government relations, event planning, educational programs, administration, finance, web design, etc. What is your story that you can share with BABTA to achieve its goals to the membership?

The board will continue the goals and objectives of BABTA (Networking, Education and Community involvement) and strive to achieve more for you “our membership.”   This happens with your help and your support of BABTA.

As the incoming BABTA President, I look forward to working with you and creating your story. Here’s to our BABTA Family!

Your President – Greg Sweeney
