Last week, I had a terrific “virtual” experience. As much as it would have been great to be in Las Vegas or somewhere beautiful around the globe, I hardly left my family room. You see, it was Virtuoso Travel Week (VTW). Virtuoso is a travel consortium that includes the top travel advisors and suppliers around the world. VTW, held annually in Las Vegas, usually attracts thousands of advisors and suppliers to a whirlwind week of speed dating appointments, dinners, cocktail parties filled with learning, networking with suppliers and fellow agents, and exhilarating exhaustion!
This year, VTW was completely virtual and it was amazing. In four short days, I met with dozens of travel suppliers from around the globe, focusing on what you are looking for when you travel. With the help of technology – don’t ask me how it works – I've had 10-minute face to face meetings with suppliers to get the latest updates on travel in their countries, at their hotels, on their cruise ships and especially what they are doing to welcome back travelers safely during and after the pandemic.
I ended the week with a renewed excitement for the future of travel. Every hotel, travel company, tour operator, cruise line is positioning itself for whatever they need to do to make you comfortable in returning to what you love – traveling the globe and pursuing your bucket list trips. I am ready to answer your travel questions. And, I’m ready to get you out on the road again – safely, with all the information that you need to have a wonderful trip. Everyone’s timeline is different, but it is time to start those conversations. I’m ready to hear your travel ideas.
So, let’s talk about your next trip!
Dream today, travel soon!
