2020 Agenda

We understand the importance of professional growth, and the role education plays in helping delegates expand their horizon. At the Family Travel Advisor Forum, education is approached in many ways.

The chance to be in Jamaica for 2020, allows participating travel sellers a unique opportunity to immerse themselves on the many opportunities this beautiful destination offers.

Complementing this opportunity, the Forum will offer delegates a dynamic One-to-One Showcase, providing an atmosphere where advisors cultivate important supplier relationships while building product knowledge.

Beyond this, travel sellers will have the unique opportunity to take part in Destination and Product Sessions, Peer-to-Peer idea exchanges, Big Room Presentations, Experiential Networking Events and so much more!

We’re delighted to offer a 360 degree approach to success! Here’s what we have in store for 2020:
