HQ returned to GBTA 2023 for the second year as we stepped out in hot and humid Dallas, Texas! It was a jam-packed few days where we:

  • Announced the arrival of our turn-key self-service solution on Media Day
  • Welcomed hundreds of attendees to our Booth #2208, including recently signed new clients, long-standing loyal customers, and fresh prospects!
  • Had a full house for our Education Session panel discussion on strategies for success in ground transportation, moderated by our VP of Sales Susan Lichtenstein in conversation with travel buyer Carmen Smith, Andrew Miller of International SOS and Tab Wooden of Bank and America.  
  • Sat down with GBTA Broadcast Studio anchor Monisa Clein, where our Chief Revenue Officer, Charity Rumery, and VP of Sales Susan Lichtenstein were interviewed on HQ’s latest innovations, product developments, and industry trends. 
  • Hosted a team dinner at one of Dalla’s finest steakhouses, joined by our GBTA HQ team and teammates Tony D’Auria and Widad Waters, who were also in town!
  • Check out our GBTA summary video on Linkedin here

A change from GBTA 2022,  our bright, light, and white booth this year welcomed hundreds of GBTA attendees, where we showcased our ground transportation solution HQ SummitGround with numerous live demos on the Expo floor across our desktop and mobile app booking experience.

In true HQ style, our navy blue, white, and yellow SWAG this year included bluetooth headphones, a baseball hat to protect against the Texas sun outside, and yellow Yeti mugs!

It was all smiles when one of our clients swung by our booth during the official opening of GBTA on Sunday 13th August.  Thanks to the camera timer function, we were able to get everyone in the shot!

And that’s it!  Thank you, GBTA!  Thank you, Dallas!  And thank to each and everyone we talked to throughout the conference – a highlight of 2023!
