Questex’s Travel Agent and Luxury Travel Advisor today announced the 2019 Travel Industry Exchange, the leading one-to-one event with a product-focused conference, creating revenue opportunities for agents and suppliers. The 2019 event will take place September 18-20 at the Astor Crowne Plaza French Quarter in New Orleans, LA.
Travel Industry Exchange, the number one event for specialization, offers suppliers a minimum of 12 hours of direct facetime with attending agents, part of which includes a ten-minute presentation on a panel with their peers, as well as up to 35 one-to-one appointments, networking meals and receptions as well as event activities. According to Travel Industry Exchange research, 93 percent of suppliers wish to return to the event.

We’re looking forward to bringing these groups together to drive the industry forward.”
