Andavo Travel, a host agency, held its AndavoMart event in Seattle bringing its travel advisors from across the country together for networking, hotel site inspections, company information sessions and travel vender meetings. Andavo is a member of Virtuoso.
This year’s event included hotel inspections of three of Seattle’s premier Virtuoso properties: Hotel 1000, Four Seasons Hotel Seattle, and The Fairmont Olympic Hotel in Seattle. Other AndavoMart events included a private dinner at The Seattle Flight Museum catered by McCormmick’s and Schmicks Steak House, and a walking tour through the Pikes Place Market.
AndavoMart brought in 22 vendors this year. Each advisor was able to meet with key contacts from companies such as Delta, Four Seasons, Fairmont, Regent Seven Seas, Silversea, Seabourn, Orient-Express, and Abercrombie & Kent.
The meetings are invaluable to Andavo travel advisors, Andavo sys. They enable them to meet new contacts and deepen their relationships with old ones, learn about new promotions, and stay up to date on relevant destination information.
