SALEM, Ohio — The Missouri Travel Alliance (MTA) and Select Traveler Conference are working together to build a better group travel industry. A recent relationship agreement will have each organization promote the other to both travel industry members and group travel buyers.
MTA is a statewide association of destination marketing organizations, hotels, tour operators, receptive operators, restaurants, museums and attractions with the mutual cause of enhancing the group travel market in Missouri. MTA also has a strong following of group travel planners, including bank travel program directors located in numerous states.
Under the agreement, MTA will encourage its members to expand their outreach and marketing by attending the Select Traveler Conference, where they will meet representatives of 100 bank travel clubs. The Select Traveler Conference will extend its membership registration discount to all attending MTA members. In return, the Select Traveler Conference will promote MTA to its membership of bank travel program directors.
As a bonus, MTA will offer a full Select Traveler Conference scholarship registration to its travel planner membership.
“MTA is a great organization, and we are excited to be working in partnership with them,” said Joe Cappuzzello, president of the Select Traveler Conference. “The leadership of Chuck Martin, executive director of MTA, is greatly recognized in the relationship.”
The scholarship registration to MTA members includes hotel, meals, sightseeing, entertainment and airport transfers. In short, MTA travel planners will be the guest of the Select Traveler Conference, compliments of MTA.
