The Travel Professionals of Color (TPOC) National Association is moving forward with exciting plans for its 8th annual conference and trade show to be held in Nassau, Bahamas, April 22–25, 2010. The TPOC Association will be meeting at the Sheraton Nassau Beach Hotel.
During the conference, the TPOC Association will be focusing on the many business growth opportunities available in the areas of heritage tourism. In addition, TPOC will make available for its attendees an opportunity to earn points toward CLIA Certifications, earn CTA and CTC accreditation, and obtain Heritage Tourism Certifications.
Many travel industry speakers will be available to share information and help travel business owners to become more profitable. Travel agents and tour operators at all levels of their career are invited to attend and reap the benefits of the training TPOC will provide for its delegates.
In addition, travel and tourism suppliers who have an interest in reaching the US$90-plus billion minority travel market will have an opportunity to learn how to reach this flourishing market and how to increase profits by selling heritage tourism travel.
Tourist offices and convention & visitors bureaus who have an interest in generating more business from the growing minority market will benefit by attending the conference and taking advantage of the opportunity to meet and greet, one on one, with sellers of travel who have a direct connection with the minority travel community. TPOC members can help increase business for many destinations. Sponsorship and trade show opportunities are also available.
More detailed information on the conference program will be forthcoming.
