Virtuoso extends Globetrotting at Travel Week 2024

Travel advisors given more control over appointment scheduling this year

Virtuoso Travel Week 2024 will see luxury travel advisors given more control over their appointment schedules than ever before, with matched meetings each morning, and both informal and more structured networking in the afternoons. Attendees will also need to be qualified to attend.

Under the revamped registration format for Virtuoso Travel Week, qualifications have been necessary for members to attend. Running from 10-16 August 2024 in Las Vegas, those attending will be Virtuoso’s top producing advisors, newest advisors, high potential and core advisors.

“You’ve asked for more time to meet with other attendees for more meaningful topics to you and your business, and we’re delivering that,” said Jennifer Campbell, Senior Vice President, Network Products & Events.

In an update to Virtuoso members released recently, Campbell also revealed that given the popularity of Community Globetrotting, the program has been extended beyond Saturday to now run into Sunday. That tweak will provide travel advisors “even more time to focus on your specialty areas of travel,” she said.

VTW 2024’s casual night will revert to Monday evening and will this year be held at Allegiant Stadium, where Super Bowl LVIII was held in February (and it’s where this year’s NRL season kicked off with a4-day festival of Rugby League in March). This event provides an opportunity for Travel Week attendees to relax with colleagues from around the globe in a “fun, interesting environment” and importantly, “is fully air conditioned,” Campbell adds.

With ‘Wellness’ a key pillar in luxury travel, Virtuoso has added a number of options in this vertical to the 2024 program including fun runs, step challenges and yoga.

Also in the program is a range of peer-to-peer sessions during professional development with Virtuoso soliciting presenters from around its network, in addition to outside speakers. Traditionally hosted on Sunday, these sessions are potentially being broadened to other days of Virtuoso Travel Week, Campbell hinted.

Meanwhile the Virtual Virtuoso Travel Week option has been rested for 2024, with Campbell noting “we believe meeting in person for this event drives value for the network and fosters global connections, unlike any other event.” She highlights that around the world, Virtuoso offers over 50 opportunities throughout the year for Virtuosos to connect.
