For 2019, over 25 industry speakers are featured both in Vancouver and Toronto, the majority of whom are leading the more than 30 educational sessions offered.
“Travel MarketPlace features dynamic industry speakers who are experts in their field, sharing their knowledge on topics that include social media, sales, marketing, crisis management, technology and more,” said Anne Marie Moebes, publisher of Travel Market Report.
