Business Travel Spending Slows In 2015

Posted on October 14, 2015

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- U.S. business travel spending will increase by 3.1% in 2015 and 3.7% in 2016, yet the global oil price collapse and economic weakness in China, Russia and the Middle East dampen the outlook for growth this year and next.

These findings are part of the GBTA BTI Outlook – United States 2015 Q3, a report by the GBTA Foundation, the education and research arm of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA), and sponsored by Visa, Inc.
