Most Business Travelers Expect To Attend Conferences Within Six Months

A new survey released in early April by the U.S. Travel Association found that 84% of business travelers expect to attend conferences, conventions or trade shows in the next six months. The newly developed Quarterly Business Travel Tracker also found the top reason for uncertainty about upcoming business travel was whether meetings and events would occur, followed by corporate policy restricting travel.

“The return of in-person meetings and events — and business travel in general — is a welcome sight after more than two years of pandemic-related uncertainty,” said U.S. Travel Association President & CEO Roger Dow in the press release. “There is simply no substitute for a face-to-face meeting, which is proven to lead to more fruitful business opportunities and can help power an economic and jobs recovery in communities across America.”
