ULTRA Trendsetters, organized by Questex Travel Group, publishers of Luxury Travel Advisor and the thought leadership behind the ULTRA Summit, will take attendees on a jaunt to local Austin agency Departure Lounge during the upcoming event, which will be held September 17-19, 2017 at The Driskill in Austin, TX.  

Like its sister event, Trendsetters will focus on luxury travel, but will be geared towards the forward-thinking advisors and supplier brands who are changing the way we think about modern luxury.   

To convey the type of trendsetting marketing opportunities available for advisors, attendees will take a field trip to Departure Lounge, an Austin-based travel agency that also happens to be one of the best coffee shops and wine bars in Austin. Founded by Keith Waldon, a former marketing executive with Rosewood Hotels and Virtuoso, Departure Lounge was developed as a new way to visibly engage a community with the world of travel.
