Travel Leaders also continues to roll out new technology initiatives and improvements. At the 2013 Travel Leaders National Meeting in Atlanta , Travel Agent was on hand for the official unveiling of a new integrated marketing technology. InteGREAT Enterprise represents a synergy of four major marketing and technology initiatives launched by Travel Leaders over the past three years that have now been melded into one suite.
