Nexion Travel Group has announced the site of its 2021 CoNexion conference and released new details of its 2020 CoNexion at Home. The host agency says it is committed to giving its members an innovative virtual format for this year’s conference and an event to look forward to in 2021.
CoNexion 2020, originally scheduled to be held at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA, was canceled due to Nexion Travel Group’s concern for the safety of attendees during the COVID-19 pandemic. The event was changed to a virtual conference called CoNexion at Home. CoNexion at Home will offer an array of informative and entertaining general sessions with Nexion Travel Group and travel industry executives, as well as the workshops usually taking place at CoNexion. Nexion Travel Group members will have their choice of classes on marketing, business skills, destination knowledge, sales training and more. Sessions will run from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT on September 11 to 13, 2020. Attendees will have a chance to interact with supplier representatives at a virtual trade show.
Registration and information for CoNexion 2020 will be forthcoming.
Nexion Travel Group also revealed the location and date of CoNexion 2021, normally announced at the end of the current year’s conference. On a Member Town Hall in June, Jackie Friedman, president of Nexion Travel Group, said that Nexion Travel Group members next year will be taking to the seas on Norwegian Cruise Line’s Norwegian Joy. Held from September 25 to October 2, 2021, CoNexion 2021 will depart from New York and sail to Bermuda. Speakers and classes will be announced after CoNexion at Home.
After announcing CoNexion 2021, the event sold out its initial berth of cabins in 68 hours. The company has been able to open an additional 100 rooms for its members to attend; Nexion Travel Group members can learn more and register at nexion.com.
