Plans for the Spring edition of the Home Based Travel Agent Forum are well underway, and in addition to great education and networking, agents will get to enjoy a whole lot of fun, too!
Taking place in Las Vegas (Entertainment Capital of the World), the Forum has a new home in the Paris Hotel & Casino and a new timeframe, March 20 – 23, 2016. March in Las Vegas not only offers a full range of special attractions and events, (ie March Madness, St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, and JLo’s Residency) coupled with the ongoing city-wide offerings such as world-class gaming, shows, concerts and more, but it also is the most desirable time to be in the desert, with average temperatures of about 70 degrees!
Now, back to the Forum! You’ll not only have time on your own, but here are some official additions being offered exclusively to the Forum’s attendees:
With three distinct evening events on the agenda, each night will be unique at the Forum.
On Sunday, March 20th, from 8:00 – 10:00 pm, CCRA, the Forum’s premier sponsor, will host the renowned VIP High Roller Event at The Linq. The hottest addition to the Las Vegas Strip, you’ll have the ride of your life with incredible views. Once you’re back on ground, you’ll enjoy a fantastic reception at the High Roller’s Wheelhouse, complete with fun, food, and drink. This can’t miss event will get you mixing with agents and key suppliers such as Barcelo Hotels & Resorts; Carey International; Caesar’s Entertainment; and Celebrity Cruises to name a few. Pre-registration is required, and space will fill up fast!
On Monday, March 21st, our hosts at the Paris Hotel & Casino will be treating delegates to A Night In Paris, a fun-filled reception complete with savory bites, drinks, and great networking opportunities, with the City of Lights as our backdrop.
Our closing event, set for Tuesday, March 22nd will be sponsored by the Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority. Details are under wraps, but of course, What Happens in Vegas, Stays in Vegas…
