Omega World Travel Announces its Participation in the Society for Government Travel Professionals’ EdCon 2012


FAIRFAX, VA – August 23, 2012- Omega World Travel, a fast-growing, award-winning leader in the travel management industry, announces today its participation in the Society of Government Travel Professionals' (SGTP) upcoming EdCon 2012 event, taking place September 4-5, 2012 at the Marriott Crystal Gateway Hotel in Arlington, Virginia.

Founded in 1984 in part by Omega World Travel CEO and current Honorary Board Member, Gloria Bohan, SGTP, formally known as Society of Travel Agents in Government (STAG),   is a consortium of travel industry professionals and influencers who are interested in starting or growing their existing footprint within the government space, at the local, state, military, and federal levels. The group operates as an open, supportive entity, with members sharing various best practices from their experiences to help others navigate the ever-changing government travel landscape. Omega World Travel's General Counsel, John Lawless, is also Vice President of the organization's Board. SGTP holds two meetings annually, EdCon in September, and its Annual Meeting (AnCon) in the late Winter/early Spring season.

The upcoming EdCon '12 event will continue to further the organization's goals of learning from one another while moving together toward the common goal of increasing efficiency and value in travel management services provided to the government.

"I look forward to this next EdCon event," Omega World Travel CEO and SGTP Founder and Honorary Board Member, Gloria Bohan says. "It has been exciting to watch this great organization continue to develop and grow. The government travel market has gone through many permutations over the years, and the ability SGTP provides members to share and learn from each other is critical to their continued success."
