ASTA Encourages Global Links

ASTA's 2008 International Destination Expo April 12-16 in Lyon, France, will encourage ASTA members to increase global business links, including a new Global Business Day. The April 13 event is open to all international travel agent attendees with the goal to help members increase global contacts and networking opportunities.

"The Global Business Day is a great way to help international travel professionals find new business," said President of ASTA's International Chapter Presidents Council, Robert Durant. "Attendees will be able to network with other agents and suppliers from around the world."

Featured will be one-on-one interaction with U.S. agents, international agents and worldwide suppliers to help attendees expand their connections and grow their business. International agents will get the chance to participate in roundtable discussions on important topics such as how international agents are dealing with airline commission cuts, how to do business in the United States and how to improve marketing reach.
