Happy Saturday everyone!!! I hope all of you are enjoying a fun summer weekend filled soaking up the sun at your nearby beach or pool! Today, I am heading west to the desert – not your typical summer vacation, but then again, this isn’t a vacation for me – I am headed to Virtuoso Travel Week at the Bellagio Las Vegas!!! Some refer to it as the “Super Bowl” of travel, while others compare it to Fashion Week. My best analogy is the comparison to the High Point Furniture Market or the Atlanta Gift Show – Virtuoso Travel Week is where I am going to “shop” for all my clients travel dreams! My week is filled with meetings, cocktail parties and dinners – all with hoteliers, tour operators, cruise lines and other travel suppliers. It is mecca for luxury travel advisors and I cannot wait! Last year I missed it because of my broken arm, so I have been counting the days until this year’s event.
This video from the Today Show last year sums up the week quite well:
I can’t wait to get back to share all the latest and greatest travel trends with all of you!! Have a great weekend, my friends…wherever you may be wandering…
