Long Beach Package Travel will participate in the Spotlight on the Northwest conference, August 26-28, 2018 in Pendleton, Oregon to focus on continued efforts at networking, business building, education, itinerary design, and more.
Spotlight Travel Network is an informal group of travel professionals throughout North America who value and seek mutually successful business relationships. There are no membership fees. We just ask that you participate by building open and honest relationships, pursue growth and learning, and adhere to the Spotlight “family spirit”. Spotlight Travel Network launched on August 1, 2013, forming the foundation from which a growing family of tour and travel conferences could grow. The flagship – Spotlight on the Southwest – is now in its 20th year. In 2014, Spotlight on the Southeast debuted as the first expansion of the franchise and has experienced unprecedented growth and success. Spotlight on the Northwest premiered in 2016, followed closely by Spotlight on the Mid Atlantic in 2017.
With annual regional conferences conducted throughout the country, Spotlight combines educational seminars, networking functions, and a trade show. Tour operators are primarily domestic (including Canada) and range from small operations to large receptive companies (and everything in between). The ratio of suppliers to operators is never more than 2.5 to 1. Spotlight is casual and intimate. We don’t just network – we build relationships at Spotlight. There are three days of interaction in which to conduct business. The goal is to build lasting relationships. New tour itineraries to off the beaten path destinations are highlighted, using the closest regional cities as arrival and departure points. We truly believe that once you experience the Spotlight difference, you’ll be sold on our brand of doing business in a warm, casual, fun, and professional way.
We invest time and resources into participating in events like this Spotlight on the Northwest to ensure we stay informed on best-practices, new vendors, new itinerary options, and to continue to build relationships with professionals in the group travel industry. Contact Ragan Myers at Long Beach Package Travel if you have any questions or would like additional information. We hope to see you there!
