CCRA PowerSolutions Event

On April 29 CCRA Travel Commerce Network experienced a record number of more than 200 travel agent attendees at its PowerSolutions Event held in Miami, Florida, at the Crowne Plaza Miami International Airport Hotel.

This followed CCRA’s first show of the year that also broke previous event attendance records, held on February 19 in Anaheim, California. Travel agent attendance at CCRA’s first two 2015 Regional Travel Event shows has more than tripled since CCRA first debuted its PowerSolutions regional travel event series for travel professionals and suppliers in 2014. The four remaining PowerSolutions shows will be held in the following cities this summer and fall: Boston, MA; Washington, DC; Newark, NJ; and Long Island, NY
