The NBTA's 40th International Convention and Exposition was fantastic with over 6500 corporate travel buyers and suppliers in record setting attendance.  A memorable occasion that included a 5.4 mag earthquake! Alan Greenspan was fantastic and we saw Cindy Lauper at the brand new Nokia theater where the next Emmys will be held.

We hope you will enjoy this week's programming as we bring you another 2 full hours of National Business Travel Association RADIO! This is a new radio program highlighting the business traveler and the NBTA that represents national and international corporate travel buyers and suppliers.

Directors Corner:
Sandy was recently named as NBTA's International Correspondent and played a major part in covering the convention in LAThe event was filled with corporate travel buyers and suppliers from around the world. NBTA is growing by leaps and bounds around the globe and now includes NBTA USA, NBTA Canada, NBTA Asia Pacific and NBTA Mexico. 

In addition to being the host of NBTA Radio, Sandy served as the 'Larry King' of NBTA TV.... way better looking! Her interviews with NBTA members included the leaders in the business travel industry and were shown prominently on nearly every flat screen throughout the LA convention center as well as in the hotel rooms of the conventioneers AND the connecting motorcoaches taking folks back and forth to the expo. It was great to see Sandy on NBTA TV and Radio. She really knows how to connect our global audiences with the experts in business travel. For more information on NBTA Radio and NBTA TV go to: http://www.nbtaconvention.org/Pages/Default.aspx

TravelTalkMEDIA to Fly Inaugural
Emirates A380 flight at LAX


Sandy Dhuyvetter, Executive Producer and Host
of TravelTalkMEDIA Will Fly Aboard
the Newly Delivered Emirates Airline Airbus A380
During the Inaugural Flight while in Los Angeles

(August 03, 2008 – Los Angeles, CA) – TravelTalkMEDIA announced today that Sandy Dhuyvetter, Executive Producer and Host of TravelTalkMEDIA, RADIO and TV, will fly aboard the newly outfitted Emirates Airline Airbus A380 during the aircraft’s inaugural flight from Los Angeles on Tuesday, August 5.

Emirates Airline will showcase the Airbus A380, the industry’s most fuel efficient aircraft, at LAX’s Flight Path Museum.

Following a 9:15 a.m. touch-down and water cannon ceremony, the aircraft will host a two-hour familiarization flight, allowing VIPs and media to experience firsthand the A380

and Emirates’ award-winning on-board amenities and service. The two-hour journey up the West Coast and back will depart at 11 a.m.

About the event, Ms. Dhuyvetter said, “The TravelTalkMEDIA team and I are totally excited, as you can imagine, to take part in this historic event. We plan on filming as much of this experience as possible to show our audiences all the features of the Airbus A380. We’ll experience first-hand the many amenities that this aircraft offers as the A380 ushers in a whole new era of comfort for airline passengers previously only enjoyed on private jets.”

The A380 seats 489 passengers (14 first class, 76 business class and 399 economy class) in an upper and lower deck, three-class configuration, and offers top-of-the-line comfort, including fully-equipped bathrooms with shower facilities and two lounges for first and business class passengers with full bar service, sofas and a 42-inch LCD screen. Emirates Airlines has 58 of the A380s on order and will introduce the aircraft on their LA-Dubai route in the near future.
