About our signature events

Knowledge is power. It’s an age-old axiom and one we firmly believe in. Join our subject matter experts at one of the many industry events we host to stay informed about what’s going on in the travel industry and what’s coming around the bend.

Our Spring Sessions and Fall Symposium bring together clients, prospective clients, partners, suppliers, and the World Travel, Inc. team. These are prime learning opportunities, and facilitate networking with colleagues who may be facing the same travel program challenges and triumphs that you are.
