FTA Active on Virtual Industry Conferences

Written by

With virtual conferences becoming the new norm for how we gather together to learn, network, and stay connected, the Family Travel Association has been busy spreading the word on how family travel could lead the way in our industry’s recovery once travel is ready to return.

To give travel advisors and a chance to engage with industry experts and suppliers during a live event that simulated in-person trade shows, Jack Ezon from Embark Beyond Travel, Pavia Rosati of Fathom, and journalist Shivani Vora hosted The New Travel (TNT), a virtual conference designed to help the travel industry navigate Covid-19, and specifically the next six months of travel.

TNT was a collaborative event uniting travel companies (hoteliers, destination marketers, DMC, cruise lines, travel networks) with travel media and luxury travel advisors to better understand how the industry is adapting and shifting to fit evolving needs and to help revive the industry.

FTA Founder Rainer Jenss took part in a panel discussion on The Travel Trends For This Summer and Beyond.   Along woth Rainer, the panel included Jack Ezon, Deborah Yaeger Fleming, CEO & Partner, Acqualina Resort & Residences on the Beach, Jerry Goss, President, GossRV, and Moderator Shivani Vora, contributor at CNN Co-Founder, The New Travel. A video of the panel discussion is available here.

A Summary of Key Takeaways

The FTA also exhibited at the All-American Roadshow (see our virtual booth here), while FTA Founder, Rainer Jenss, led a panel discussion on Florida For Families (click here to watch the recording). The online trade show, produced by TravPro Mobile, offered travel advisors the opportunity to re-engage with domestic suppliers and DMO’s in anticipation of a renewed interest in the all-American road trip. Over 2,500 travel advisors attended the event and over 60 domestic suppliers participated. During the show, advisors had the opportunity to view breakout sessions on topics like: Roadtrippin’ – An American Classic, Discovering National Parks, Vegas: Now Open, California Luxury Retreats, Responsible Travel, and so much more! The show is available on demand through the month of August at www.theallamericanroadshow.com.
