Announcing – the 2018 Romance Travel University!

We’re ready to announce the schedule for DWHSA’s annual conference – the Romance Travel University (May 1-3, 2018)!

You’ll notice that we’re bringing back many of the most popular conference features, including the small-group appointments with exhibitors, the agent-led seminars (recorded so you can catch up later on the ones you missed), the “Let’s Flamingle!” agents-only reception (you can dress up again in 2018 – more details later), and the Thursday night “Dine Around” sponsored by our friends at the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority …

But, we’re so pleased to tell you about what’s new for 2018:

NEW! A four-hour “Host Agency Owners Summit” on Monday afternoon where you can talk with other DWHSA members who also have outside agents …

NEW! “Vegas in Depth” Experiences on Monday and Friday (2- to 4-hour excursions on topics such as planning bachelor/bachelorette parties) …

NEW! The “Ask the Experts” session on Tuesday afternoon where you can talk with top professionals in areas ranging from public relations and branding to working with wedding planners, dealing with high-end brides, and improving your social media and your web site …

NEW! Three clusters of “demo time” where you can sit and chat directly with key suppliers (two sessions with travel tech companies and one session with host agencies and consortia that focus on romance travel agents) …

NEW! Suppliers and tourism offices meeting with you in rooms on the second and third floors of the hotel (instead of typical trade show tables), so you can relax and talk with the exhibitors (and, for the first time, you’ll get a chance to request the meetings you want) …

NEW! The chance to invite wedding planners who work with your agency as outside agents or as referral sources (wedding planners may NOT attend on their own – they must be affiliated with a DWHSA member’s agency before they can register)

Lots more details will be coming soon – but, please take a look at the full schedule, and register when you’re ready!
