Professional development is the foundation for the existence of the Ohio Valley Business Travel Association. We were established in 1969 by a small group of travel industry leaders seeking to develop the knowledge and professionalism of those individuals who were managing or selling travel related services. Each of our meetings is designed to provide current, leading edge information and knowledge sharing among our membership, or to create a comfortable social environment where networking and peer recognition can be accomplished informally.

Our commitment to education remains the focus of the organization today. 

In addition to providing industry leading educational meetings on a regular basis, OVBTA also supports the professional development of members through a comprehensive scholarship program.
