Professional development is important, regardless of what industry one works in, which is why I attended the New York Times Travel Show here in New York City back in January. I learned so much during the one day industry conference that when I learned of the Travel Leaders Network International Conference in Orlando I immediately signed up.
While Orlando isn’t a place that was at the top of my list to return to, I went because I knew the learning and networking opportunities would be worth it. For three days, I attended various sessions on travel related topics from industry insiders and suppliers. One fun perk on this trip is that the conference attendees had free private access to Universal Studios one evening. We had the chance to go on all the rides without any lines and when we tired of that we could stop at one of the free food or drink stations.
