Industry Affairs

Chair: Ajaya Sodha – Key Travel

The Industry Affairs Strategy Group has the increasingly complex task of monitoring legal, regulatory and financial issues which impact on the business travel sector. From Westminster to Brussels and Geneva the group has a watching brief on regulation which may impact TMCs or their corporate clients, providing guidance to Members as appropriate. Cavendish Communications advises on the latest political developments relevant to the travel Industry and co-ordinates meetings with members of Government.


  • Monitor legal, regulatory and financial issues in the travel sector
  • Oversee the GTMC’s relationship with IATA and related bodies
  • Agree the GTMC’s lobbying position on regulatory and tax matters


Typically, participants in this strategy group are Financial Directors, CEO’s, Tax / VAT Managers and Company Secretaries drawn from the GTMC Membership.  This group gives you the opportunity to voice your opinions / concerns on topics such as more frequent remittance, NDC and government affairs which will be communicated to the relevant parties and can have a direct effect on Government policies.

Should you have any queries or wish to join this group, please contact Julie Cooper.
