One of the biggest factors that sets Virtuoso travel advisors apart from the crowd
is their connections – advisors know hotel owners, tour providers, and on-the-ground contacts around the world who can help them turn an ordinary vacation into an extraordinary one. When you check into a hotel room and your favorite bottle of wine is on the table … an advisor helped make that happen. If you’ve always dreamed of sipping tea with a member of the Royal Family at Buckingham Palace … an advisor likely knows someone in London
who can make that a reality. These
are the types of connections that get made at Virtuoso Travel Week.
How exactly do advisors meet thousands of industry connections in one week? Via some very efficient speed-dating sessions. The main event at Virtuoso Travel Week is the four-minute appointments, aka the “tracks.” Travel advisors sit at individual tables and chat with a different hotel, tour, or cruise representative every four minutes. That networking then continues beyond the conference room, at lunches and dinners, awards ceremonies, cocktail parties, and more. (In fact, there are more than 850 events within the event!)
Virtuoso’s company ethos is based on human connection, and that’s one of the biggest benefits of working with a Virtuoso travel advisor – that curated, personal collaboration is something an automated travel booking site will never be able to provide. Spending a week in Las Vegas with a very extended family of global travel professionals results in another year of exciting vacation opportunities for travelers.
