Travel Leaders reports its 2012 International Summit will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, April 20-22, 2012. The event is the franchise network’s top networking meeting.
“Given that our Travel Leaders named Croatia as their top ‘up-and-coming’ European hot spot for 2012, it’s serendipitous that we’re taking this year’s International Summit to that nation’s premier, must-see destination, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site,” noted Roger E. Block, president of Travel Leaders Franchise Group.
Croatia was recently named by Travel Leaders members (franchisees) as the “top up-and-coming” European destination they’re booking for 2012 by a wide margin. Croatia’s Minister of Tourism Veljko Ostojić will officially welcome attendees.
Travel Leaders’ 2012 International Summit marks the first time the annual event has been hosted in the Balkans. Previous Travel Leaders International Summits have been mounted in London (2000), Hong Kong (2001), Paris (2002), Barcelona (2003), Budapest (2004), Dublin (2005), Rome (2006), Dubai (2007), Berlin (2008), Santiago (2009), Jerusalem (2010) and Sydney (2011).
“Whether our Travel Leaders’ clients enjoy a destination steeped in history, one with a gorgeous natural setting or one that has simply charmed for centuries, Dubrovnik has it all, so we want our Travel Leaders to experience it for themselves,” Block explained. “Like all other International Summits, this year’s Dubrovnik meeting offers our Travel Leaders ample one-on-one time with their colleagues, key suppliers and members of our headquarters team.”
Registration for the International Summit is $450 per person, based on double occupancy. The registration fee includes three nights at the Excelsior Hotel plus exclusive events and private tours along with all taxes, gratuities and transfers for events and tours.
