The 10th stop on our 2017 PowerSolutions LIVE tour was anything but ordinary on Tuesday, November 14th. Hosted at the home of Hollywood glamour in LA's vibrant cultural district, PowerSolutions Los Angeles fused the timeless elegance and remarkable Millennium Biltmore hospitality with the opportunity for agents to network with over 25 of the travel industry's top-rated suppliers.
As agents filtered in, CCRA's Brian Albano kicked things off with an all-new supplier panel featuring representatives from Millennium, Vistana, Qatar, Unique Vacations, and Tourism Israel. "The goal of the panel was to really show our agents how available our suppliers are to them and their tools" said Brian Albano, Director of Supplier Relations at CCRA. "There was a lot of interest and questions asked regarding how to access supplier products and trainings they can use throughout the year."
From the panel, Noshane King of Unique Vacations had this to say, "Travel professionals have an appetite for more knowledge, especially from a technological standpoint, that will assist them with developing and growing their business/clientele. I'm ecstatic that I was able to share meaningful insights that can help them achieve their overall goals as travel professionals."
Following the panel, Founder and CEO of Travel Research Online, Richard Earls, took the stage for a special keynote on Harnessing the Power of a Professional Web Presence. Richard walked agents through how they can utilize the power of TRUESites to easily build a beautiful website. Richard also provided agents in attendance with a teaser on our next product release, TRUELeads!
Before the trade show got underway, Brian Albano welcomed a surprise guest - President of North America and Chief Technology and Solutions Officer at Millennium Hotels and Resorts, Howard Wu. Mr. Wu welcomed the agents to his beautiful venue and carried on the conversation of technology in the travel industry and the exciting times we live and work in.
Agents then circled the ballroom gathering information they can put towards running a more successful business, earning higher commissions, and hopefully new relationships that will last.
A special thank you to our suppliers! We can always count on you for making our PowerSolutions events the powerful events they continue to be.
