By Benjamin Flowers: Virtuoso Travel Week, is one of the largest meetings of international travel professionals in the world, and Belize was represented at the event thanks to the Belize Tourism Board (BTB).
The BTB’s Marketing and Communication Manager Gale Azueta along with Travel Trade Coordinator Simon Noralez, attended the event which was held from August 13 to 19 at three luxury resorts: the Bellagio, Aria Resort & Casino, and Vdara.
“Over the course of the seven-day event, Belize engaged in pre-scheduled one-on-one appointments and several professional development and compelling events that allowed for networking opportunities with additional advisors. This hybrid event fosters authentic engagement that will directly drive business for Belize,” the BTB said.
According to Virtuoso, the event gathers representatives from more than 2,000 hotels, resorts, tour operators, for meetings geared toward creating one-of-a-kind travel experiences for travelers.
The professional development meetings included seminars, roundtables, Q&As with Virtuoso leadership, a travel technology summit, and sustainability symposiums.
Participants also had the option of taking part virtually.
