Home-Based Travel Agent Expo

October 30, 2006 By: Jennifer Fernandez Travel Agent

The Event Is Now Weeks Away

The highly-anticipated inaugural Home-Based Travel Agent Expo & Conference is almost here. Taking place at the beautiful Mandalay Bay property in Las Vegas, this three-day event (including a pre-event day on December 5) has already received pre-registrations from more than 3,100 home-based travel sellers, all eager to take advantage of an impressive line-up of targeted programming, incredible networking opportunities and a commission-packed trade show floor.

Show management, along with the team at Travel Agent,
has crafted a comprehensive curriculum with something for everyone—whether
you're looking to learn the best way to choose a host agency, enhance your
supplier relationships, develop your own sales plan, find out about alternate
commissions, hone in on specialization or hear how other home-based travel
agents have succeeded. The agenda features sole presentations and panel
discussions featuring some of the most well-known experts in the industry
giving home-office ideas on how to develop a client base and enhance overall

Delegates will also be able to take part in a number of
one-hour product seminars, including presentations by South African Airways and
its partners; the Jamaica Tourist Office; and the Las Vegas Convention &
Visitors Authority.

Over 3,000 agents will converge at the Mandalay Bay property in Las Vegas

The trade show floor, a major opportunity for delegates,
will be open on both Wednesday, December 6 and Thursday, December 7 from 9 a.m.
to 12:30 p.m.

Over 200 domestic and international travel suppliers will be
on hand to meet and do business with delegates. Representatives will showcase
destinations, tour operators, cruise lines, transportation and travel insurance
providers, air consolidators and other types of commissionable products and
services as well as host agencies, technology companies and other resources for
the home-based office.

Exhibitors will be offering hands-on training, launching new
products and announcing other developments on the show floor.

The trade show will also offer agents the chance to win
great prizes: giveaways provided from some of this year's exhibitors include
gift cards to participating Las Vegas
eateries, shops, shows and spas (compliments of the Las Vegas CVA and its
partners) as well as tickets to the hilarious performances of The Scintas.

Home-Based Travel Agent Expo & Conference is part of
Travel Week Las Vegas. Also part of this exciting happening, is the 8th annual
Luxury Travel Expo.

Though these shows will take place at the Mandalay Bay
property over the same dates, they are separate events and require agents to
register separately if they intend to participate in both. The expo does have
complimentary pre-registration for bona fide travel sellers pre-show; onsite
registration fee is $20 per agent. Luxury Travel Expo requires agents to pay a
separate fee.
