While at the event, Ovation's Executive Vice President, Michael Steiner,
will be featured in the GBTA Broadcast Studio one-on-one interview

"Ovation has had a number of exciting announcements in 2018, from
acquiring a London-based agency and thereby opening our first
wholly-owned location outside of the U.S., to bringing on new senior
management in the UK and US, and investing in advanced point of sale and
reporting technologies for our clients," said Mr. Steiner, whose GBTA
Broadcast Studio interview will focus on the overall advancements being
made in travel management. "Ovation's focus has always been on providing
bespoke solutions, and raising the bar for service delivery. Over the
past 18 months, we've had great success combining our service platform
with powerful automation covering important technologies from mobile, to
