ISM and GBTA Travel and Meeting Summit

The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) and the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) have appointed StarCite, Inc.’s Kevin Iwamoto as Honorary Chair and Lindy McNairy as Vice Chair of the 2011 ISM and GBTA Travel and Meeting Summit being held in New Orleans, April 19-20 at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel.

“As a former long time global procurement manager, I’m thrilled and excited to chair the 2011 ISM and GBTA Travel and Meetings Summit,” said Iwamoto. “I am a firm believer that events like this not only benefit the attending professionals, but the lessons learned from the content provided will benefit their corporations, especially during these challenging times of global austerity.”

The Summit, which is designed by leading supply management professionals, features insights, tools and strategies to help optimize travel and meetings spend and align procurement with overall business performance. The two-day event will cover the latest trends in indirect services procurement, executive viewpoints from the C-level and megatrends of travel and meetings procurement.

A new addition in 2011 is a Pre-Summit workshop on Strategic Meetings Management: Building the Business Case. The one-day workshop is designed to help participants clearly articulate the benefits of implementing a Strategic Meetings Management Program (SMMP) in their corporate environment.
