Natasha Rhodes of Vision Travel’s Calgary office has won the award for the Most Innovative VAST (Virtuoso Active and Specialty Travel) award at Virtuoso’s annual Travel Week conference in Las Vegas.
Rhodes was the only Canadian nominated for the award which was voted on by Adventure and Special Travel tour companies around the world who are partners in luxury travel association Virtuoso.
“I am elated and honoured,” said Rhodes, who attributes her accolade to out-of-the-box marketing such as inviting clients to a presentation and workshop by an award-winning National Geographic photographer. “And I am so grateful to my supplier partners whom I’ve worked with now for almost 10 years. This is truly a collaborative industry and it is indeed a pleasure to work with such professional and caring people.”
