Upwards of 1,000 travel agents and industry suppliers, including a large contingent from Canada, are expected to attend the American Marketing Group, Inc. (AMG) global travel agent conferences June 5-10, 2018 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Florida.
The week-long event offers educational sessions, hands-on training and networking opportunities for the company’s Travelsavers and The Affluent Traveler Collection brands.
Kicking off the week, The Affluent Traveler Collection Symposium runs June 5-6, focusing on the luxury niche, for travel agents who belong to the group’s The Affluent Traveler Collection.
Travel Market 2018 runs from June 6-10 for Travelsavers. Both of these conferences take place every other year. A private, invitation-only mini-conference will also be held for agencies that are part of the TWIN global agency network.

Agents will leave the event with incredible tips and tricks they can implement right away in their businesses to boost sales and increase profitability.”

Top industry executives, AMG staff, and high-performing travel agents will round out the programs, which will address every aspect of the travel business, including new travel products, marketing, trends, legal concerns, and technology.
“We hold our conferences every other year, so we can pull together everything in one amazing, action-packed event,” added Mazza. “And we always sprinkle in some fun ─ this year, it’s our Night in Havana party and our Great Gatsby Gala.”
