Those companies include: TRAVELSAVERS (with branches in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Europe), TWIN (a global travel management company with an international network of travel agencies around the world), NEST (the industry’s only marketing group exclusively for home-based travel agents), The Affluent Traveler Collection (the industry’s newest marketing group for luxury travel advisors), Acclaim Meetings (a meetings marketing organization for travel agencies and meeting planners), TRAVEL HELPLINE and agent24 (global after-hours services), and TravelTix (an air ticket fulfillment service).
The five-day event will include a series of educational tracks on marketing, sales, social media, technology, niche markets and business operations. A track specifically for suppliers will provide insight into the inner workings of the travel agency business.
Travel agents and suppliers who are part of the American Marketing Group companies will soon receive an invitation to the event. A conference micro site will also be launched shortly providing more details, as well as up-to-the-minute news and developments.
