The other day, I was talking with a colleague about an annual conference we attend together. I find these conferences to be useful in catching up with colleagues and vendors while learning about the latest tools and techniques. They are a great refresher on the latest marketing tactics as well as products I can use in next year’s marketing campaigns. In fact, the 2010 conference was where I found ideas on how to utilize social media for lead generation.

I attend events because they teach me to do my job better and help me be a better marketer. It also enables me to grow my network of contacts through networking. (And it doesn’t hurt that they have evening functions that are laid-back and conducive to simply letting loose.)

How do you get your education? What do you do to keep on top of the latest ship you can offer your clients? How do you research new revenue streams? What can you provide that is outside the norm to your clients? How do you keep it all straight?

This year, we are happy to inject some new initiatives into Luxury Travel Expo. First, we moved the start time to 9 a.m., allowing us to provide you with more education time. Make sure your travel arrangements give you plenty of time to arrive in Las Vegas. Next, we moved our General Sessions to the afternoon for those of you finding it hard to wake up early after a long night out on the town. In addition, we moved them to Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons so we can provide you with more learning opportunities on Thursday. The Wednesday Learning Luncheon, a hybrid of our popular Thursday General Session, is a chance to relax and rejuvenate before an afternoon on the trade show floor.

Thursday brings us to our “Fast Track” afternoon, which was born to give you the maximum return on your time at Luxury Travel Expo. These rapid-fire programs include four hard-hitting educational programs on Travel Insurance, Luxury Marketing on a Shoestring Budget, Consultative Selling and Customer Service, and Online Reputation Management and Branding. Plus, we bring you marketing unlike any you have ever seen—in roundtable format, learning from the best gurus in the industry.

You spoke, and we listened. We added more educational opportunities than Luxury Travel Expo has ever provided. Take all that learning back to your office so you can earn more from this profitable niche. Don’t miss a step. Registered advisors can create their own personal conference schedule by adding seminars in their LTE Connect account. View the website and start planning today.
