Vacation.com Launches Regional Seminars

Vacation.com reports it has significantly expanded its exclusive, in-depth training events in an effort to reach members in their home towns. The concept originated in Canada and has grown to blanket the United States, with regional conferences and owner/manager mixers scheduled throughout 2010.

In May, Vacation.com hosted large Regional Meetings in Boston and Denver, as well as smaller Owner & Manager Mixers in Columbus, OH, and Rochester, NY— all of which were attended by a large collection of members and suppliers. As a result of exceptional member participation, additional mixers and regionals are planned for this fall in Orlando, Seattle, Atlanta, Los Angeles and San Jose, CA.

“We received such positive feedback at every event, from both members and suppliers, that we immediately decided to host more throughout the country, giving even more members a chance to attend, network and learn,” said Karin Viera, Vacation.com’s general manager of sales, who attended both Regional Meetings.

Co-sponsored by Vacation.com's Preferred Suppliers (Holland America Line, Royal Caribbean International, Funjet Vacations, Kensington Tours, Virgin Atlantic Airways, Air New Zealand and the Globus family of brands), the Regional Meetings included a mini-trade show, dinner and a presentation on social media.

The informal and interactive Mixers gave owners and managers an opportunity to network with other members and Preferred Suppliers, speak directly with Business Development Managers and learn about Vacation.com’s core programs and member services.

Regional meetings and mixers are extremely popular in Canada, as members had convenient access to 24 events held across the country, as well as four additional venues scheduled for October in Toronto, Edmonton, Vancouver and eastern Ontario, where they will participate in Breakout Sessions, Power Speaker Seminars, a Tradeshow/Reception and a General Session Dinner.

Vacation.com’s U.S. members should look for invitations to arrive in the July timeframe, while Canadian members can visit CanadaNet for more information on their meetings. All other agents should visit www.JoinVacation.com to learn more about the benefits Vacation.com offers.
