Convention Ambassador

Convention Ambassador Program

Every year, GBTA looks for members to each serve 8 hours during Convention 2023 as Convention Ambassadors. All Ambassadors will receive a preferred registration rate of $150 to attend 2023 GBTA Convention. Due to the popularity of this program, we do currently have all of the volunteers needed. Submissions at this point will be placed on a waitlist, as we have reached our goal number of individuals.

Terms & Conditions:

  • For Allied Members, a GBTA Industry, GBTA Chapter Membership or All Access membership is required.
  • For Direct Members, a GBTA Industry or All Access membership is required
  • A minimum of 8 hours of service + a mandatory 2-hour onsite orientation is required.
  • Ambassadors who do not fulfill the responsibilities on-site will be invoiced for GBTA Convention 2023 registration.
  • All Travel & Expense (including but not limited to hotel, car, airfare, parking, food and beverage, etc.) is the responsibility of the member.
  • GBTA Members who are selected for the program and have registered for Convention will receive a price adjustment, minus any credit card or administrative fees, for their 2023 registration.
  • Once your final schedule has been confirmed and agreed to, we cannot guarantee any specific changes onsite.

Mandatory Convention Ambassador Orientation and Training will take place at the Kay Bailey Hutchison  Convention Center Dallas (KBHCCD). You must be able to attend one of these times: Saturday, August 12th from 1PM-3PM, or Sunday, August 13th from 8AM to 10AM.  Please note, if you plan to participate in any pre-convention GBTA Academy program, you will not be able to participate as an Ambassador due to the conflicting schedule.
