Sabre Travel Network will hold its 16th annual Travel & Technology University (TMU) from May 17-19 at the MGM Grand Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Sabre announced. The conference theme will be “Finish First,” encouraging travel agents and agency owners to take steps to ensure their business is healthy and thriving in 2011.
Technology and Marketing University brings travel agency owners, executives, front line agents, and back office specialists together for three days of education, training and networking.
This year, Sabre says it is expanding the scope of TMU to include guest speakers with perspectives from inside and outside the travel industry. Agents could benefit from workshops and panels on the most compelling topics and a diverse lineup of keynote presenters, in addition to training.
Workshops will cover all facets of the Sabre Red total travel solution including ClientBase, Sabre Red Workspace, Trams Back Office, Sabre Virtually There, ClientBase Marketing Services and a sneak peek at Sabre’s revolutionary graphical tool set for release in 2011.
All travel agents, regardless of the shopping, booking, GDS and CRM tools they rely on, are invited. Whether an agency sells primarily corporate travel or leisure experiences, the diverse range of workshops promises greater success and confidence when they return to the office, Sabre says.
MGM Grand is offering a $99 hotel rate. TMU costs: $300 per person. Prior to March 15, 2011: $250. The registration web site with full agenda and class descriptions will be available in late January, Sabre says. Visit www.sabre.com.
