2021 Book More Travel Workshop (March 23-25)

Award-Winning Travel Industry Event Goes Virtual!

MOORESVILLE, NC: For 2021 the travel community is ready to thrive again and Book More Travel Workshop (BMTW) is back just when the industry needs it the most!

Over the past 7 years, hundreds of travel advisors have counted on BMTW as a source of inspiration and a way to connect with other business-focused travel business owners. Book More Travel Workshop’s Magellan-winning content taught marketing and mindset strategies previously not available through traditional educational platforms in the travel advisor education space. Prior to 2021, BMTW filled the ballroom of The Ballantyne Hotel in Charlotte welcoming 300 travel advisors with over 40 vendor partners.

With more than 300 travel advisors registered at the early bird rate for BMTW, the virtual stage is set to welcome a record number of travel business owners who want to get ready for the rebound in travel. The BMTW team, powered by both the Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs and Gifted Travel Network, is harnessing best in class technology to make the virtual BMTW interactive and engaging for every participant. “We have invested in a virtual event coaching program that is outside the travel industry to ensure we deliver the most robust virtual experience possible,” said VP of Sales, Sandy Saburn. “What I love most about GIFTE and GTN is how the leadership team is always ahead of the curve on what is needed for travel advisors to thrive. Their foresight to lean into the virtual event space is going to provide a completely unique and up-leveled educational experience for travel advisors registered for BMTW. We are transforming our office into a virtual studio and we could not be more excited for this event!”

The focus for 2021 is getting travel advisors ready for the comeback that is already building. Sessions will include content focused on growth mindset, maximizing marketing and social media; revenue drivers to ensure they meet and exceed their financial targets; leveraging new ideas and techniques to grow their sales such as Facebook Ads and virtual events; and how to run their business without it running them.

Notable changes to this year’s event include:

  • Adding a full day of content making this a 3-day event
  • Introducing breakout sessions in two tracks: one for experienced advisors and another for those who are new
  • Offering an early bird price that is the lowest ever offered: $47

BMTW is open to everyone in the industry and will provide information that is applicable to all independent travel advisors. Registered attendees include experienced and new advisors, those considering the travel industry, and people who have worked for travel industry companies who are looking to re-invent themselves after being laid off.

For 2021 BMTW is co-hosted by GIFTE (Global Institute for Travel Entrepreneurs) and sister company Gifted Travel Network.

The event will be held Tuesday, March 23 through Thursday, March 25. Full details and link to register can be found at www.BookMoreTravelWorkshop.com. Early bird pricing of $47 ends March 19.
