Direct Travel Canada Makes Its Presence Known

Direct Travel made its presence known at the recent Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas, with 107 advisors and members of the executive team from across North America attending the event.

Direct’s senior vice-president of leisure strategy & marketing, Toronto-based Stephen Smith observed: “Virtuoso Travel Week is an annual event that allows us to continue to build relationships with the best luxury partners and peers from around the world.”

Smith was particularly impressed with this year’s spotlight on the impact of AI and the importance of integrating it into the travel planning process, noting that: “We’re very focused on incorporating these advances while maintaining human connection – which has now become even more critical.”
