The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) reports that former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will deliver the Wednesday General Session keynote at the GBTA Convention 2013. The GBTA Convention 2013 will be held August 4-7, 2013, in San Diego, CA.
“Hailed as the most traveled Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton is a testament to the value of travel and face-to-face meetings,” said Michael W. McCormick, executive director and COO of GBTA. “She visited more than 112 countries as Secretary, and in doing so demonstrates the key role that travel plays in diplomacy, government and business.”
Hillary Rodham Clinton served as the 67th Secretary of State of the United States from January 2009 until February 2013, after nearly four decades in public service as an advocate, attorney, First Lady, and Senator.
In 2000, Clinton made history as the first First Lady elected to the United States Senate. In 2007 and 2008, Clinton made her historic campaign for President, winning 18 million votes, and more primaries and delegates than any woman had before.
The GBTA Convention, with nearly 7,000 attendees, is among the largest annual gathering of business travel and meetings managers, meeting planners, procurement professionals and suppliers.
