Education Session Proposal Review Process

  • All proposals are submitted into a double-blinded review process that is completed by a group of volunteers, made up of your industry peers (business travel experts and representatives of the GBTA membership), who are a part of a Peer Review Council (PRC).
  • The proposals are then twice scored by the PRC, followed by an in-person meeting to discuss all the proposals at length and make the final selections for the education program.
  • Members of the PRC do not have the ability to score their own presentation submissions.
  • If you are interested in volunteering for the Peer Review Council to review proposal submissions, please email
