Who we are
The GTMC is the only representative body for Travel Management Companies (TMCs) and the business travel community in the UK.
Our Members are a diverse range of TMCs who account for around 80 per cent of all managed travel booked in the UK. This ranges from the world’s largest TMC groups, to specialist businesses who have the in-depth knowledge and expertise to power a certain sector. Furthermore we have direct access to the views of 30,000 business travellers.
The Industry Partners of the GTMC are key travel industry suppliers such as airlines, airports, accommodation companies, rail, car rental and technology providers.
What we do
The GTMC works together with its Members and Industry Partners to raise the profile of the vital role of business travel on the broader economy. Delivering practical solutions to challenges, cross industry issues and market changes is part of the core work of the GTMC.
Business travel is the professional service that allows companies to expand, grow, nurture existing relationships and find new opportunities in other markets. The insight of our members and partners is a strong barometer as to how the economy is performing.
Our nationally representative research give us a statistically robust understanding of business travel issues, trends and opportunities in the UK business travel industry which enables smarter market intelligence and stronger business growth.
We recognise those who are using technology to drive innovation, growth, efficiency and improve customer experience.
The voice of business travel
We connect people, developing relationships and insight that give us a focused approach to lobbying and promote the need for business travel.
The GTMC lobbies those who have an impact on the business travel of Members’ clients – such as travel suppliers, government or EU legislators, opinion formers and the media. The aim of the GTMC’s work in this area is to provide a better deal for organisations and their travelling employees, and to ensure that their views and requirements are represented at the highest level.
