Travel Leaders Elite - a division of Travel Leaders Group comprised of Andrew Harper Travel, Colletts Travel, Protravel International and Tzell Travel Group - held its first combined travel trade shows this month, titled“Elevate the Journey.”

The two exclusive trade shows were held in Los Angeles on October 17 and a week later in New York on October 25. In total, more than 1,000 agents and representatives attended the two events, making them the largest trade shows ever held by Travel Leaders Elite.

The first of the two was held at the Beverly Hills Hotel, and brought together nearly 200 of the agencies’ best-in-class agents and employees as well as over 170 of the industry’s representatives. The five-star hotel in the center of Beverly Hills opened its doors for Travel Leaders Elite’s travel agents and industry partners for an evening of cocktails and conversation about the latest trends in luxury travel.

The second trade show was held in the newly re-opened Ziegfeld Ballroom in Midtown Manhattan, drawing over 420 agents to meet with 360 representatives of hotels, airlines, tourism boards, and cruise lines from all over the world. Originally opened in 1969 as a movie theater, the ballroom is considered a distinguished event property, and it made for a memorable venue to house the exclusive trade show.
