Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs Finalizes Speaker Line Up for February Event
GIFTE’s Book More Travel Workshop to Feature Panel of “Experts in Action”

The Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs (GIFTE) is excited to announce its speakers for the Book More Travel Workshop, to be held February 3rd and 4th at the Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge in Charlotte, NC. In addition to powerful presentations from GIFTE CEO Meredith Hill and the GIFTE executive team, the workshop will also feature travel professionals who have achieved impressive success in different areas of their businesses as part of the “Experts in Action” program.

Over the two-day workshop, the nine members of the “Experts in Action” program will be sharing actionable marketing and business strategies with attendees. Each Expert in Action will get the chance to speak to the audience of 100+ travel professionals from the main stage as well as interact with attendees on a more intimate level throughout the workshop. Michelle Woodson of MH Signature Journeys, for example, will share insight into how she booked a $200,000 group river cruise by getting clear on her message. Shannon LeBlanc of Paradise Vacation Escapes will share how she grew her business by 300 percent once she crafted a clear, compelling message, while Jennifer Round of Slaydon’s Travel will reveal how she tripled her sales in one year after she rewired her mindset to expect success, not scarcity. Other experts will share tips on consistently sending an ezine, building relationships through networking, how to charge service fees, and more.

The “Experts in Action” program offers a unique opportunity for attendees to learn straight from those who are “on the ground,” so to speak, selling travel every day. “This stellar group of agents truly embodies the new iteration of success in travel,” said Hill. “I want other agents to hear directly from these travel professionals so that those who are struggling realize that they can do it, too.”

Attendees will also be able to meet and mingle with an impressive group of travel suppliers who will be presenting and/or exhibiting at the workshop. Platinum Sponsors for the Book More Travel Workshop include Crystal Cruises, AmaWaterways, Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, and Perillo’s Learning Journeys.

General admission tickets to the Book More Travel Workshop are $349. To learn more about the workshop and to register, please visit:
