Keeping Up with the Travel Industry
See this? Travel consultants, as far as the eye can see! All of these people are planning amazing trips for their clients – if you aren’t using one, you are missing out! This photo is from a Home Based Travel Agent Forum in Las Vegas this past week.
I headed out to learn from the best in the travel industry and meet important contacts at hotels, cruise lines and tour companies. Travel consultants make it a priority to stay educated on all areas of the business and conferences like these are an integral part of that. Never underestimate what a travel agent knows and who they know!
I loved meeting up with Fernando of Starwood Hawaii. The Westin Maui is one of my absolute favorites, and it was great to get a chance to talk to him.
I met some fabulous agents out there as well. It was especially great to find other young professionals, with creative businesses and interesting niches. Anyone who thinks travel agents are outdated just hasn’t met the new generation. We are a passionate group of travelers with distinct specialties who are determined to keep up to date on the travel industry and continue to explore the destinations we serve to give our clients the best possible travel experiences.
Plus, you know, I got to pet this adorable Wallaby.
Wallaby petting + education + meeting awesome agents = excellent experience!
