Tuesday marks National Business Traveler Day (NBTD), a holiday dedicated to honoring and celebrating the business traveler. Upside Business Travel is heading the new initiative along with over 20 travel companies and media organizations to bring live celebrations and prizes to business travelers across the US.
According to Upside, Americans take nearly 2 million business trips every workday. For the first-ever NBTD, prizes will be given away prizes to those busy business travelers in select airports. Business travelers will find NBTD Lounges at Chicago O’Hare (ORD) Terminal 2, Dallas (DFW) Terminal C, and New York JFK Terminal 5. Each lounge will have refreshments, comfortable seating and charging stations.
Also, NBTD will be taking over four XpresSpa stores in JFK Terminal 8, San Francisco (SFO) Terminal 2, Los Angeles (LAX) Terminal 5 and Westfield World Trade Center in NYC on Tuesday where Wall Street Journal readers will be treated to complimentary spa services.
“National Business Traveler Day marks a new day for business travelers,”Jay Walker, chairman of Upside and founder of Priceline said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be joined by 23 leading companies across the country, including many of the largest travel companies, to celebrate April 24th as a day to honor our nation’s business travelers.”
