Second Annual Ultra Summit Kicks Off in Chicago

Luxury Travel Advisor's Ultra Summit kicked off last night at the Park Hyatt Chicago with a fabulous cocktail party. A hand selected group of luxury travel advisors and suppliers have all convened here in Chicago for two jam-packed days of educational seminars and networking events. 

"We take our role as being able to bring together this high-level group of thought leaders to strategize on the future of Ultra luxury travel," says John McMahon, executive vice president, Questex Hospitality + Travel. "I think everyone is excited about the ability to collaborate and connect, and to look to the future of luxury travel. Together, with so many great minds in one place, travel advisors will be able to make business decisions based on the information that they gather over the next two days."
