The focus of this study is to quantify the economic contribution made by business travel to the overall U.S. economy. To achieve this, we estimated total annual spending initiated by business travel in 2012 (most recent full year data available) and used a standard economic model to translate that spending into GDP, jobs, wages, and taxes. The study also sought to profile U.S. business travelers in a number of key areas in order to better understand their behavior, motivations, and spending patterns.
