Registration Opens for 2014 Conference

las reports that registration officially is open for its 16th Annual International Conference & Trade Show, June 8-12, 2014, at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, NV.

Early bird registration for members is available for $79 through the end of September, allowing attendees to reserve a spot in classes and pre- and post-tour opportunities, the group says. 

Over 200 members have already registered for next year’s event – many committed while attending the 2013 Conference in June which took place in Orlando, FL, says.

“The early registration numbers are tremendous, and based on the feedback we received from this year’s Conference, I anticipate attendance at our 2014 International Conference & Trade Show will be equal to or surpass this year’s,” said President John Lovell

“I can say that with confidence after taking a look at the post-Conference survey results.  Of the members who attended our Conference in Orlando, 97 percent indicated that they were satisfied with the overall experience and the opportunities their attendance offered them.  It doesn’t get much better than that," Lovell said.’s 2013 Conference was attended by over 1,300 industry professionals and additional post-Conference survey feedback indicated the highest-rated portions of the event included: general sessions, trade show, training, and the exclusive evening event at SeaWorld Orlando, says. 

The group said it received a 100 percent satisfaction rating from supplier attendees who completed the survey, and 82 percent of all attendees reported that they plan to attend the Conference again in 2014.

Next year, the theme for the annual event will be “All Access.” members will essentially be provided an All Access pass to the consortium’s programs and tools, activities and headquarters staff, along with VIP access to one of the top destinations booked by members – Las Vegas. also notes that members will also have a multitude of opportunities to meet face-to-face with supplier representatives, learn about the latest in travel industry innovations, network with their peers and other travel industry executives, and take advantage of numerous training workshops.
