Vacation.com 2010 Conference Goes to Orlando

 

 

After successfully hosting its annual meeting at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for the last two years, Vacation.com has selected the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort as the site of its 12th International Conference and Trade Show, taking place June 27 through July 1, 2010.

“We are excited to partner with Marriott—one of our excellent Preferred Suppliers—for our next Conference,” said Lauraday Kelley, Vacation.com’s vice president of conference and corporate communications. “With so much space at this venue, we will be able to take the show to new heights, providing a truly unique learning and entertainment experience for our members.”

The world’s largest Marriott, the Orlando World Center is a centrally-located golf and spa resort set on 200 lush Central Florida acres. It features more than 2,000 guest rooms and suites, along with 450,000 square feet of event space.

Along with an outstanding educational lineup, world-class entertainment, product demonstrations, thought-provoking general sessions and a packed trade show, 2010’s Conference plans include pre- and post-event cruise opportunities, a ship inspection with lunch and a golf tournament.

“We are thrilled that Vacation.com chose the Orlando World Center to host their event next year,” said Julius Robinson, vice president of global sales intermediaries for Marriott. “We welcome the opportunity to provide a terrific customer experience to a valued partner.”

Even before the Orlando site was announced, many member agents were already planning to attend, Vacation.com said. Results from a survey given at the end of the 2009 Conference showed that 90 percent of attendees were committed to returning next year, mostly due the event’s 95 percent overall satisfaction rating.

“To have so many attendees promise to return to next year’s Conference before we selected the destination speaks volumes about the dedication of our members to improve their sales abilities and increase their product knowledge,” added Kelley.

U.S. members receive one complimentary registration to Conference, while additional employees and Canadian members can take advantage of the $79 early-bird rate until October 31. Vacation.com members should visit AgentNet for more information and to register.
