Ensemble to ‘Come Together’ in Las Vegas

From strategic discussions on the business of travel to the soulful performance by Broadway’s Sister Act, this year’s Ensemble Travel Group International Conference promises to be a not-to-miss event for the organization’s 850 member agencies and its global network of preferred partners. This year’s meeting, set for Oct.17-21 at the Red Rock Resort Las Vegas, is built around the theme, “Come Together,”a message that reflects the unity of the organization’s North American membership and network of worldwide preferred partners. “Our primary goal at conference is to bring these two groups together and help them become more profitable in the business of travel, while we, as an organization, continue to grow stronger and more powerful,”said Lindsay Pearlman, co-president, Ensemble Travel Group. “How do we do that in Las Vegas? Through a series of business-centric, solution-based discussions, targeted learning opportunities, and non-stop networking, attendees will re-charge their business models in ways they never thought possible.”According to Ensemble executives, the conference program is based on member feedback received through several sources, including conference surveys and LinkedIn. Many of the topics and guest educators are new this year and are sure to make for a meaningful experience for all attendees.
