Delivering the World to You

With seven months until Luxury Travel Expo, there is already a vast array of destinations scheduled to be represented at the show. Luxury Travel Expo delivers the world to you, with delegates from destinations ranging from Peru to Thailand and from Italy to Argentina. Nations from all over the world are eager to attract the American luxury market. Tourism officials value travel agents' business and are looking to develop relationships with those of you who make selling luxury travel your niche of choice.

There are many great books and guides you can read to learn about destinations. However, in my eyes, there is nothing more valuable then actually meeting the people who live there. By speaking with people from different cultures, experiencing their excitement and love of their country, you gain first-hand knowledge and added enthusiasm to sell it. You'll get to see pictures, videos and national costumes, take back gifts and experience different foods and traditions from many countries in one place and one time at Luxury Travel Expo.

Enhance Your Knowledge

The best way to learn about a destination is by making contact with the tourist boards and CVBs. They can give you advice on what part of their destination is best-suited to your client, and put you in touch with hotels and resorts, car rental companies, tour guides, etc.—all the knowledge you need to make a good vacation experience into a great one.

Attend Luxury Travel Expo to make a world of contacts and virtually experience the many countries your clients dream of visiting. Set aside three days out of the 365 days of the year to meet those suppliers who are going to enhance your destination knowledge and boost your sales.

Visit www.luxurytravelexpo.com for the most up-to-date list of suppliers and destinations that have committed to meeting you in December. See you there!
