Luxury Travel Expo is well-known for providing a world-renowned educational program since its inception in 1999. The show is planning a conference program that will deliver real tools that agents can implement into their agency. The program is guided by the combined input from the Luxury Travel Expo Advisory Board and Susan J. Young, the show’s conference director.
For 2009, the conference program theme will be “A Luxury Seller’s Toolbox for Sales Success.” It is designed to assist luxury agents in walking away with a plan for immediately increasing results within their agency. Agents participating in Luxury Travel Expo are welcome to attend any course of their choice.
Introduced this year are “Learning Tracks,” meant to help agents easily designate sessions that interest their particular learning style. Luxury Travel Expo will deliver a program that offers first-hand knowledge, experiential tips, executive intelligence and trade resources. The conference program will be available online at www.LuxuryTravelExpo.com in mid-August.
Luxury Travel Expo will be held December 1-3, 2009 in Las Vegas. Access to the complete conference program is included in the $50 registration fee (expiring August 31st).
