Funjet Launches Virtual Trade Show

On Tuesday, Funjet Vacations kicks off Virtual Product Launch, an online trade show, which the company says is the first web site of its kind to give agents centralized, 24-7 access to supplier information and sales content. The idea is to create one centralized location for agents to visit virtual supplier "booths," view product presentations, attend breakout sessions and access brochures and sales flyers, said Tom Brussow, director of business development for Funjet Vacations. The site offers access to more than 50 suppliers, such as Starwood, Iberostar and El Dorado Resort, and the opportunity for live online chats.

"VPL replicates the trade show experience without having to leave the office," Brussow said in a statement released recently.

Agents can log on September 25 at 5 p.m. Central time and again on September 26 at 7 p.m. Central time to chat with company sales executives about Virtual Product Launch, which will go live during the first chat on September 25. Visit [www.funjetvacationsproductshow.com].
