Egencia is entering an exciting new chapter under its acquisition by American Express Global Business Travel. The powerful backing of Amex GBT makes Egencia part of the most valuable travel marketplace in the world. This brings a slew of benefits to customers, including:

  • The most content for choice and value
  • Leading global customer satisfaction
  • Incredible depth of data that makes booking travel easy 

Recently, Amex GBT joined the list of companies going public in 2022. It went live on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol ‘GBTG’. Amex GBT CEO, Paul Abbott, expressed optimism about his company’s future, saying, ‘Trading as a public company follows years of work to strengthen our market leadership position. While listing our company is an achievement, it also marks the beginning of a new phase of growth paired with a focus on delivering long-term shareholder value as the world’s largest publicly traded (business-to-business) travel platform.’

The team celebrated with an official bell ringing at the NYSE—take a look at the photos below.
