A record 320 participants will attend the national conference including 63 representatives from 45 partner suppliers and an overwhelming 206delegates are travelling fromevery state and territory across Australia. This is the first time personal travel managers from all states and territories will be represented.

Themed ‘Inspiring People, Inspiring Travel,’ the three-day conference will focus on equipping personal travel managers with the skills to truly motivate clients and promote the value of a client having their ‘own’ personal travel manager.

Chief Executive,Joe Araullo, says from a business perspective the conference objectives centre around equipping personal travel managers with the skills they need to truly make a positive difference while setting TravelManagers apart from other companies operating in the home-based distribution space.

“It’s all about enhancing our clients’ inspirational travel experience from the dreaming and planning stages right through to the time they return home. In addition to this we will also focus on the difference we can make to the communities within which we live and work, directly and indirectly, locally or further afield.”

There is also much anticipation around the guest speakers, with their presentations being linked to the conference theme.

“We are so fortunate to have such a high calibre of key note speakers attend this years’ conference, providing relevant content as well as thought provoking and open forum discussion,” says Araullo.

TravelManagers now with more than 440 personal travel managers, for 39 personal travel managers it will be their first national conference further highlighting the growth of new personal travel manager recruits this year.

“For 14 personal travel managers this will be their seventh conference, never having missed one. This is a fantastic testament to the value these conferences add to the personal travel managers experience with engaging key note speakers, informative workshops and working collectively on challenging realities, all rolled into a few fun filled days,” says Araullo.

The decision that Singapore would be the conference destination was influenced by the country’s expansion and transformation of tourism attractions over the last five years.

“The 2014 conference provides an opportunity for personal travel managers to familiarize themselves firsthand with the destination as it grows as a re-energized destination in its own right. Many of the personal travel managers are already sampling their first Singapore Sling so they are well and truly embracing local life and culture,” says Araullo.

The TravelManagers 2014 national conference is being held 15-18 August 2014 at the Raffles City Convention Centre in Singapore.
