GBTA to release European payment whitepaper for oil, gas & marine sector

The Global Business Travel Association announced the planned release of a whitepaper on payment issues and solutions for the oil, gas and marine travel sector

ROTTERDAM – The paper, which has been created by GBTA’s oil, gas and marine advisor in Europe, Mr. Eamonn Friar, will be provided to GBTA members globally but also given to all delegates of its three energy and resources events globally in 2012 from the 24th October 2012 onwards.

The association has announced plans for Oil, Gas & Marine Travel Symposiums in Rotterdam, Netherlands in October and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in November of this year and an Energy & Resources Travel Symposium in Perth, Australia.

Talking about the paper, Paul Tilstone, chief global development officer and European managing director for GBTA, said,” At our inaugural event in 2011 in Aberdeen we committed to producing a whitepaper on payment which will act as a resource for travel professionals in this sector.  It is clear that the unique challenges this sector presents to travel programmes are replicated in the payment systems too, so we felt it was important to delve deeper into these for the benefit of members.”

GBTA also has plans to produce a paper on duty of care in the sector in Europe and to undertake research in the oil, gas and marine sector.  It will provide highlights of these reports at the European oil, gas and marine event in Rotterdam.
