The GTN Conference and the BMTW are two very different events and you really should try to attend both if it is at all possible.  We schedule one in February and one in the fall so it is more “doable” to fit them both into your education calendar.

The Book More Travel Workshop (Feb 21 & 22, 2019) is offered by GIFTE (our sister coaching company) and is a very high energy 2-day event (with a pre-day for TravelMBA on the 20th) that focuses on Client Attraction, Marketing, Motivation and Mindset. There is a supplier trade show. There will be 250+ agents there from all over the industry…not only GTN agents…so you will be surrounded by travel professionals from all hosts, some brick & mortar, some franchise owners, etc and from the US, Canada and many other countries.  The BMTW is a fabulous event to get that motivational “kick in the pants” and help you move past any fear and mindset blocks that might be holding you back from taking your business in the direction of profitability! Registration for this event will be opening soon!

The GTN Annual Conference is only open to GTN members so it is smaller, more intimate, features more in-depth preferred supplier interaction and focuses on actual best practices for your business within the framework of the host.  Of course, we also focus on marketing, client attraction & mindset, but it is more “practical” knowledge. In 2019 the conference will be on board the Celebrity Summit cruise ship October 20-26 (so a lot of fun will be had by all!)  and sign-up details are under the “Events” tab in the GTN portal.  It’s also a great time to cement those all-important relationships with your fellow agents, GTN team and our preferred supplier partners.

So…hopefully that explains the difference between the two events, but we really encourage you to attend BOTH if at all possible!  We promise you won’t leave disappointed!
