CCRA Travel Commerce Network has announced Jessica Cox as its keynote speaker for PowerSolutions National 2020, which will take place February 7-9, 2020, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. Cox, who was born without arms and has overcome a vast range of obstacles during her life, will speak to travel advisors and agency owners about the value of “inspiration to action,” fearlessness, and perseverance.

Cox is the first woman pilot in aviation history to fly with her feet, and she holds the title of the first person without arms in the American Tae Kwon-Do Association to get a black belt. During her presentation, she will provide insights on how to approach a challenge while redefining the concept of possibility, and help people reconnect with their own inner strength and aptitude.
Sponsored by Melia Hotels International, Jessica Cox's keynote presentation will take place during CCRA's PowerSolutions National General Session on Friday, February 7, 2020.

Beyond the motivational keynote, PowerSolutions National will include educational tracks and workshops with training options for advisors and owners at all levels of experience. Participants will also be able to connect with experts and suppliers, receive advice from industry leaders and learn how to drive a successful travel business.
