Young Leaders Unite!



Mingle for Success
Young travel professionals network at last year’s “Mingle for Success” event.


Are you a young professional yearning to network with peers? Looking for education appropriate for you? With a successful inaugural edition under our belt, the Young Leaders
returns to Vegas Travel Week on December 5 and 6. Inspired by feedback from attendees, the format now includes two half-day sessions allowing travel professionals to access the tailored educational content available at the conference and the complete schedule of Luxury Travel Expo programming.

The Young Leaders Conference was born out of the need for under-40 travel professionals to network while enjoying a conference program geared specifically for this age group. The phenomenal praise for the inaugural event surpassed our goals to deliver a dynamic environment for the under-40 set, and we have received many inquiries from others excited to attend this year’s conference.

At the industry’s first and only forum dedicated to under-40 professionals, attendees can expect to gain newly sharpened skills and ideas to implement in their businesses. Designed by young travel professionals for young travel professionals, the conference is shaped by a steering committee of young leaders representing top agencies from around the globe.

The Young Leaders Conference will deliver topics that directly affect the under-40 travel professional, including both personal and professional development. The participants will have unique educational opportunities: town hall workshops, mentor presentations, peer-to-peer networking and career development. The conference will foster relationships necessary to continue a successful career in travel. Attendees can expect educational sessions covering technology, sales and marketing, niche travel, trends research and personal success stories. Back by popular demand, “Mingle for Success: Young Leaders Business Card Exchange,” the event’s interactive peer-to-peer networking session, will allow attendees to meet one-on-one efficiently with fellow travel professionals.

Travel agents can register for $150 and will receive a complimentary Full Conference pass to Luxury Travel Expo (a $150 value). Supplier registration opens in the fall!
