Tracy McClellan, Domestic Leisure Travel Manager, The Florida Keys & Key West

The Florida Keys and Key West are a colorful, safe destination with plenty of dependable travel options. Travel agents searching for tropical getaways for their clients should look no farther. Exceed your client’s expectation and arrange a trip to Florida’s Caribbean Island chain featuring five distinct regions. Most people know the Florida Keys and Key West as a great getaway. One of the most unique places on earth. Calm. Serene. Laid back. Just the right setting to recharge your batteries and rejuvenate your spirits. But a getaway to the Florida Keys and Key West is much more than peace and quiet. And not just because of the legendary fishing and the world’s most spectacular dive sites. The Keys mean history. Art. Theater. Museums. Shopping. Fine dining. Entertainment. And much more. This session will examine the wide range of accommodations, attractions, events and festivals, culinary and cultural opportunities, that make the Florida Keys & Key West a great getaway.

How to Choose & Sell a Safari Destination for Your Client

In this session, we examine the basic safari considerations that can help you plan and provide the quintessential African experience.
We will examine these key variables critical to planning your client’s Africa adventure.

  • The time of year
