More than 6,000 agents, suppliers and tourism/travel officials from around the world have convened at the Bellagio, Vdara and Aria on the Las Vegas Strip for the largest Virtuoso Travel Week in history.
The event allows travel professionals to network in addition to attending travel industry-specific panels and parties. Officials say there are 2,888 travel advisors alone registered for Virtuoso Travel Week this year, up six percent from 2017.
Travel industry insiders say it’s one of the largest gatherings of its kind, featuring an immense display of travel and tourism concepts that emphasize luxury products and services. Virtuoso Travel Week focuses on the evolving marketplace dialogue between Virtuoso advisors, their clients, and preferred suppliers, with advisors making a “buying trip” on behalf of their clientele,” the company says.
