The countdown has begun! 20+ of our Andavo Travel advisors are heading to Las Vegas next week to attend Virtuoso Travel Week – an annual conference that brings together Virtuoso travel agents with Virtuoso travel suppliers (hotels, cruise lines, tour operators, etc.) Think of it like travel speed dating – each travel agent meets with each travel supplier for a 4-minute appointment to learn all they can about what that supplier has to offer their clients. Its an intense week, but there are so many opportunities for relationship-building and professional development that everyone leaves feeling educated, refreshed and excited!
WHAT IS VIRTUOSO TRAVEL WEEK?
Just as fashion buyers attend Fashion Week, we head to Virtuoso Travel Week to shop the newest travel trends and products for our clients. These include emerging destinations, exciting hotel openings and service enhancements, upcoming air and cruise line news, and more. We spend the week discovering and researching the most extraordinary travel experiences for our clients. It’s at Virtuoso Travel Week that we make connections that help us design customized vacations that build memories that last a lifetime.
Virtuoso is the ultimate travel community of savvy travelers, professional advisors, and preferred providers. Being our client makes you a Virtuoso Traveler which means you receive greater value and authentic, customized experiences. Virtuoso is the foremost luxury travel network in the world, composed of more than 340 agencies and more than 7,200 professional travel advisors in 20 countries in North and South America, the Caribbean, Australia and New Zealand. The Virtuoso organization also includes more than 1,700 of the finest travel providers on the planet – airlines, cruise lines, destinations, hotels, tour operators, on-site services, and specialty companies.
The event is for Virtuoso travel agencies like us, and our preferred travel providers, many of which are announcing new products and services. If there’s a specific trip you’re interested in, we can schedule a video conference call from Virtuoso Travel Week. We can invite any of the Virtuoso preferred travel providers to join us to give you a first-hand account of what they offer, and how you would benefit.
