The five-day event will be held on both land and sea in conjunction with Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas inaugural, and will bring together hundreds of AVC agents.

"The 2009 National Conference is an opportunity for our Independent Affiliates to learn from each other and hear from top visionaries in the travel industry," said Brad Anderson, co-president of America's Vacation Center. "Following the overwhelming success of our first National Conference last year, we are tremendously excited to get our elite network of independent agency owners together to share success stories, have fun, and increase incomes."

While onboard, America's Vacation Center independent affiliates will have the opportunity to attend special events and meeting with the host agency's executives.
