Advocacy | Industry Affairs

Advocacy or Industry Affairs is ”an action that speaks in favour of, recommends, supports or defends a cause”.  Lobbying is one kind of advocacy. Not all advocacy is lobbying, but all lobbying is advocacy.

The four Nordic business travel associations work on advocacy together with other European partners in the GBTA network. Together we prioritize and decide what questions to get involved in. We have been actively influencing regulation on several topics, including eg. Payment Services and CRS Code of Conduct.

Information on our current advocacy activities can be be found in the member-only section of each association website.

European Platform

We are working with other European associations to build a Stronger European Voice on Business Travel.

The first outcome was a common statement on resuming business travel, released in April 2021.
