What’s Your Next Adventure?

Five days – 92 countries – 1860 different travel companies! That pretty much sums up the annual Virtuoso Travel Week that I recently attended at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas.

This was a terrific opportunity to  establish new relations with some of  the best  travel specialists all over the world and  to reconnect with those that I already work with on a regular basis. In between personal meetings, I attended workshops on great new destinations, exciting adventures and drop-dead gorgeous properties. So, what’s your next adventure?  We will  help you create it.

Listed below are some of the outstanding travel companies I had the pleasure of  meeting :
