Virtuoso Honors Industry Performers During Travel Week

Earlier this month Virtuoso wrapped its 24th annual conference, Virtuoso Travel Week. With its closing came the Virtuoso Peer-to-Peer awards, which allowed members to recognize preferred suppliers and vice-versa. Supplier finalists are chosen by member product committees, which are elected to represent the entire Virtuoso membership due to their expertise. Finalists were chosen based on the merits of the full recommendation submitted.
