In just over a week, Canadian travel advisors will gather at the JW Marriott Parq Vancouver Hotel for the second annual Travel MarketPlace Vancouver.
The event, taking place on Feb. 20 and 21, will provide the education, training and networking opportunities agents need to grow their businesses; as well as a chance to learn from dynamic industry and motivational speakers on a host of topics, ranging from marketing and social media to insurance and fraud.
More than 250 agents are expected to attend the event, which will feature 50 exhibitors, providing a unique opportunity to network with suppliers and fellow agents.
For those who wish to take advantage of this opportunity, some tickets are still available, but space is limited, so event organizers recommend that interested agents act quickly. Click here for registration and here for more details on the program.
