The event will bring in a fully vetted audience of Travel Agency Owners from across the United States. The event offers a quality over quantity approach, selecting a limited number of Agency Owners, who represent significant annual sales production.

How do you determine Agency Owner eligibility?

Our dedicated Travel Advisor Relations Team will hand-select participating Agency Owners through a rigid vetting process. Each delegate will submit a written application, outlining details about their agency’s annual production and year-to-year growth. In addition to the application, our team will conduct telephone interviews, professional reference checks and reviews of their online/social presence to ensure the most qualified Agency Owners are in attendance.

What is the criteria for eligibility?

Only Agency Owners from the U.S. will be eligible to attend. The average Agency Owner in attendance will represent a minimum of $3 Million in annual sales production; have proven year-to-year growth; have a minimum of 3 front-line sellers report to them (independent contractors and/or employees); and have a minimum of 3 years of experience as an Agency Owner.

Do Agency Owners pay to attend?

To support our commitment in bringing you face-to-face with the best and brightest in the industry, the Event Management team has implemented a hosted Agency Owner program, minimizing any out-of-pocket expenses, which allows us to engage and attract the most qualified Agency Owners to this Forum.
