“The global economy directly affects all aspects of the business travel industry,” said ACTE Executive Director Ron DiLeo.  “We are confident that Dr. Behravesh will be able to give ACTE members and Global Conference attendees great insight into the future of the global economy and what it could mean for business travel managers, buyers, sellers and travelers.”
