Here’s the Upcoming Conference Lineup

SALEM, Ohio — The Group Travel Family has been serving travel planners for a quarter century, providing education, networking and tour destination awareness. When it first began serving groups, the focus was simply on group travel in general.

Today, the needs of groups have evolved into more specific focuses, and The Group Travel Family has answered the call for information targeted to groups needs.

“The biggest change over the years has been the growth in niche market groups,” said Joe Cappuzzello, president of The Group Travel Family. “We now serve church groups, boomer clubs, the mature market, meeting planners, agritourism, bank travel programs, alumni clubs and chamber-of-commerce travel programs.”

If you are a travel planner, here is an overview to help direct you to the meeting most appropriate to your group’s travel niche.

• The Select Traveler Conference for banks, alumni, chambers and upscale travel groups meets in Little Rock, Arkansas, on February 7-9, 2016.

• The African American Travel Conference for groups serving the African-American community meets in Cleveland on April 21-23, 2016.
