Summer is wrapping up and 2012 will be here before you know it! For those serious about making more from luxury travel, attending Luxury Travel Expo is a great way to make the contacts necessary to exceed your client’s every wish. Our agents are responsible for contributing $2 billion in travel decision-making. Wouldn’t you like to get your share? Make sure Luxury Travel Expo is on your calendar.

Learn real tools from industry experts: This year’s program will have industry experts sharing their firsthand perspective on “Handling Challenge and Change: Tour Executives Outline Trends and Opportunities for 2012 and Beyond.” Learn how to stimulate post-crisis sales and get clients to return to vacation destinations, and listen up as they divulge related trends in clients, itineraries and destinations; their hottest destinations; and trendy booking insights for 2012. Set to present are Greg Bernd, co-president, Classic Vacations; John Lovell, president, Vacation.com; Dan Mahar, CEO and board member, Tauck World Discovery; Ian Swain, owner and president, Swain Tours; and Scott Wiseman, president and CEO, Abercrombie & Kent USA.
