Take Charge With AmEx


American Express’ “Get in the AmEx Game!” game show
American Express’ “Get in the AmEx Game!” game show is a fun (and potentially profitable) highlight of Luxury Travel Expo.


We are just DAYs away and in the final planning stages for the 2011 Luxury Travel Expo. With so much in store, this year’s event promises not to disappoint. We have an impressive educational lineup, exciting additions to the program, networking, prizes and more.

Each year, Luxury Travel Expo partners with the best of the best to bring together a rewarding program that is rich in content. Our premier sponsor in this effort is American Express. As an organization, American Express is a huge supporter of the travel advisor community and has a plethora of products and services to support your business along with your clients’ bookings. We are delighted that American Express is partnering with us once again—and I am excited to fill you in on their involvement.

Win With American Express

Last month, American Express concluded its yearlong rewards program, which awarded $6,000 in gift cards monthly. “Win With American Express” engaged travel advisors to record their cruise and tour bookings made with any American Express Card on www.winwithamex.com. The grand prize winner, chosen randomly on November 15 from among those agents who recorded at least 10 bookings on the site, won more than $15,000. Also included was a complimentary trip to this year’s Luxury Travel Expo, with honors during the Wednesday Learning Luncheon at 11:15 a.m.

Get in the AmEx Game!

Sheila Heustess, vice president of travel industry and merchant services, The Americas, for American Express, will kick off the Wednesday Learning Luncheon (starting with honors for the Win With AmEx winner). This particular program will feature the fast-paced, action-packed “Get in the AmEx Game!” game show, hosted by Rick Naylor. This interactive competition will allow the entire audience to take part and win hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars!

iConnect: Stand Out With Today’s Traveler

Margaret Murphy, marketing expert and executive coach, will present “iConnect: Stand Out With Today’s Traveler” on Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. This informative seminar will explore the secrets to out-connecting your competition. You wouldn’t want to miss this session, and there will be two $100 drawings at the conclusion of this session.

There’s so much more, but you’ll need to attend this year’s Luxury Travel Expo to find out. Don’t forget to stop by the American Express booth, #301, to find out how you can make more money with American Express. Looking forward to seeing you at Luxury Travel Expo in Las Vegas!
