Opening day of award-winning, weeklong continuing education program welcomes approximately 1,000 attendees
Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (October 28, 2017) – The energy was electric aboard the largest cruise ship in the world – Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas, as CruiseOne® and Dream Vacations, one of the nation’s top travel agency networks as part of World Travel Holdings, kicked off its weeklong 2017 National Conference.
General Manager of Network Engagement & Performance Drew Daly welcomed the audience of nearly 1,000 travel agents and industry executives and set the tone for what he promised to be a fun and educational week that will inspire all to ACHIEVE new accomplishments. Attendees also had the unique experience to see Michael Bayley, president and CEO of Royal Caribbean International, in the hot seat as he participated in an informative and engaging question and answer session moderated by World Travel Holdings Senior Vice President of Product & Operations David Crooks.
“National Conference is always the most anticipated event of the year – for our agents, headquarters team and travel partners,” said Daly. “We pride ourselves on blending the perfect mix of a robust curriculum, networking opportunities, and fun. We always see a spike in sales and engagement following conference that carries over into the following year and wave season.”
The conference theme ACHIEVE was selected by past conference participants and will inspire attendees to evolve their business and set new goals for themselves. All travel agents have one goal – to ACHIEVE success by delivering memorable dream vacations. Throughout the week, attendees will engage with each other, industry executives and more than 40 headquarters staff as they learn new techniques and the latest industry insights to take their business to the next level.
