Questex Travel Group’s fresh-faced new event – ULTRA Trendsetters, is now accepting applications for fully hosted advisor positions. The event will take place September 17-19, 2017 at The Driskill in Austin, Texas.  

As the sister event to Luxury Travel Advisor’s ULTRA Summit, ULTRA Trendsetters will also focus on luxury travel, but will take a different angle by attracting advisors who have broken from traditional sales molds to increase revenue opportunities.

"Being a trendsetter has made it possible to be different in what I sell as experiences to my clients,” said Hope Smith, owner of Born To Travel, an independent affiliate of Montecito Village Travel, who plans to attend ULTRA Trendsetters. “I love to share my knowledge with other advisors who are creative and as like-minded as me. I look forward to wonderful networking with innovative industry insiders."
