CCRA Travel Commerce Network has announced the upcoming dates for its regional 2019 events. The next PowerSolutions LIVE event will be held June 12 at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City.

These events offer education and training sessions by industry experts and business development managers, empowering speakers, face-to-face roundtable meetings between agents and suppliers, and an interactive trade show for networking with industry colleagues and providers.

Having surveyed agents over the years, CCRA has learned education is the number one component travel agents look for when they attend PowerSolutions LIVE. At upcoming events participants will gain knowledge from Tammy Levent, founder and CEO of T.A.S.K., who will teach agents how to close deals and gain new customers. Suppliers will incorporate training modules that offer agents in attendance a perspective into their products and new offerings. In addition, participants will get an in-depth look at CCRA’s new agent-only hotel booking engine, TripSet.com, led by Holly Matthews Carrig, senior director of CCRA’s agency services. Agents will then join in round table sessions where they will make connections with top supplier partners. Each event will conclude with a trade show evening of food, drinks, and more networking with the rest of the supplier roster.
