Ensemble Travel Group has announced that registration is open for its 2019 International Conference to be held from Oct. 23-27 at the Hyatt Regency Seattle.
More than 900 travel advisor members and industry partners are expected to attend the event – themed Travel With Purpose – to celebrate the company’s best year in its 50-year history and to explore the trends and changing priorities for today’s travellers.
“Whether cruising and relaxing on beaches, hiking a mountain and visiting local villages, or anything in between, every type of travel and traveller seeks a unique purpose,” noted David Harris, CEO of Ensemble Travel Group. “While we are working diligently on celebrating another great year, we will also be looking at how we can be even more successful by understanding our travellers’ purpose and meeting their changing demands. It transcends more than the seat on the plane, the room in the hotel or cruise itinerary, or the destination we are selling; it’s about staying connected to the traveller and caring about how they feel once they return home.”
Keynote speakers include Spencer West, double amputee, visionary, activist and motivational speaker, and Howard Behar, retired president of Starbucks and hailed as “a hero of conscious capitalism.”
The conference will also include a new tradeshow format with three dedicated partner trade shows with exclusive one-on-one appointments; five Ensemble product and program lounges; a Tech Bar featuring Ensemble’s technology partners; dedicated front line agent training; and the Ensemble Circle of Excellence Gala Dinner with a live auction benefitting the Make-A-Wish Foundation as well as top member and partner awards.
