Cityline TV Travel Expert and Travel Entrepreneur Lorraine Simpson will be the emcee of ACTA’s two-day Virtual Travel Industry Summit, the association announced Friday.
Simpson started her travel business in 2005, eventually setting her sights on the luxury group specialty market and growing the company into a multi-million-dollar success story. She began making television appearances as a travel expert and now hosts the TV show “What’s on Your Post-Pandemic Bucket List” as well as appearing as Cityline TV Travel Expert.
“I am so excited to have been named the emcee of ACTA’s Travel Industry Summit. The travel industry has been hit hard, but the goal now is for all of us to stick together and find new ways to reinvent our businesses while helping restore confidence in consumers to start booking trips again,” Simpson said. “We are all in the same boat right now and I hope to provide the guests at the ACTA Summit with energy, positivity and a few key ingredients to help them reinvent and rebrand their business.”
Exploring the transformation of travel through resilience and reinvention is the theme of the ACTA virtual travel industry summit being held Nov. 12 and 13. The two-day event will include keynote speakers, critical updates from government and industry leaders including opportunities to connect with fellow travel advisors. There will also be a virtual trade show, prizes and more.
“ACTA’s virtual travel industry summit is expected to draw in a big crowd,” Simpson said. “ACTA has worked tirelessly for the travel industry during the pandemic in lobbying the government for help and has been the key to many of the special assistance programs we have received to date. I could not be more excited to join them at the summit and meeting all the wonderful ACTA members.”
