The Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) announced the appointment of Maggie Wu as Manager of Operations, China, in June. The new hire followed after two successful events in the region, and an increasing demand for professional development in the Chinese business travel sector.

Wu will lead an Asia Pacific strategy to continue delivering GBTA events, research, membership and education in China.

GBTA China Chairman and Regional Meeting & Travel Manager IKEA Group Meeting & Travel, Victor Lim said in a GBTA press release, "On behalf of the GBTA China Advisory Board, we would like to welcome Maggie into the role and look forward to continue working with her in broadening our network of buyer, supplier and industry relevant contacts, and to deliver an even more comprehensive and exciting program with GBTA China in the coming years."

"Having Ms Wu on the ground to grow our presence in China will undoubtedly see a surge in professionalism in this sector,” Welf Ebeling, Vice President, Operations for Asia Pacific said in the release. “The China Conference this year received glowing results with 88 percent improvement on 2013's, and further 91 percent state that they will attend next year. I am therefore delighted to welcome Ms Wu who has been part of both GBTA Conferences in 2013 and 2014 and pleased she is formally joining us to leverage the progress made over the past two years."
