Commuting in New York City can be entertainment in itself, but I use the time to get up-to-date on the latest travel news and lose myself in a good book. To get my fill, I turn to my Kindle to entertain and engage me. As a product of Amazon and the Kindle’s retail website, the e-reader allows me to shop for, download, browse and read my favorite titles.
Amazon has evolved into shaping consumer interest, which I find is a great benefit. The “Recommend for You” feature taps into recent purchases and provides appropriate suggestions. Then, based on my profile, it clues me into new books that might interest me and communicates them in the form of regular e-mails and notifications on the Kindle. I got access to many books I never knew existed.
As a travel advisor, you should do the same for your clients. Get to know their preferences and use them to your advantage. What types of hotels do they often book? Do they prefer a city or a beach? All these things combine to help you become an expert.
Like Amazon and the Kindle, Luxury Travel Expo has now transformed into Luxury Travel Exchange International providing us with the ability to tailor the event experience before you even step foot on the Exchange floor!
To achieve that, we are excited to introduce an application process that includes a review of your demographics and bookings. Gain access to trends you wouldn’t have thought existed, new suppliers you can offer to your clients and destinations you couldn’t find in the search engines.
Since its inception in 2006, Luxury Travel Expo has produced more luxury travel advisors than any other event combined. Now in 2012, we find the way we interact, the way we source knowledge and the way we conduct business has changed. And so we evolved Luxury Travel Expo into Luxury Travel Exchange International. The application process is now open at www.ltxinternational.com.
