What travel advisors say about ASTA's events
"The ASTA Global Convention was an incredible experience! …I found that the networking opportunities were the best part. I met so many industry veterans who have "been there, done that," and who were SO ENTHUSIASTIC to help a young professional like myself." - Jacob Marek, Owner, IntroverTravels
"This was my first travel industry conference. During the conference, I was able to make important supplier and industry connections…most importantly I was able to walk away with a different perspective on my business model…which will allow me to work smarter and increase profits immediately and long-term. I am inspired to succeed and now enabled with more tools to do so as a woman entrepreneur in the travel industry." - Amanda Dyer, Owner, GoGo Travel LLC
"No other trade shows offer the educational opportunities that ASTA offers as far as real information on running a business. Fraud prevention, regulatory requirements and advocacy can only be found at ASTA conferences." - Helen Prochilo, Promal Vacations
“The sessions got me to rethink what I thought I already knew,” said Karen Kelley, Preferred Travel of Naples, Inc. Kelley said that everything at the conference far exceeded her expectations, citing the high-quality educational sessions and panels with industry executives as highlights.
"INCREDIBLE! The education has been just incredible. Coming to Dubai has really been worth the trip" –Patricia Cobbs, Dupont Plaza Travel, Miami, FL
"I can't stress enough the value that each Destination Expo I've attended has provided for my business. As an agent, we all recognize the importance of familiarizing ourselves with a destination. The ADE's go well beyond that goal by offering in-depth destination training which is crucial to my abilities to sell a location. The ADE was no exception and exceeded my expectations." -- Steve Powers, Hidden Treasure Tours
“If you didn’t come to ASTA’s Destination Expo, you could not sell this destination with any degree of credibility.” –Bob Twomey, VIP Travel Service, Rochester, NY
“It’s not every day that you get to hear CEOs talking frankly,” said Kelley about the lively Cruise CEO Panel. - Reported by Travel Market Report
