  • Top notch sponsored meal functions  
  • Numerous networking opportunities with other elite global travel sellers like yourself  
“The non-stop energy at GTM West is incredible. It keeps you focused on the whole reason you are at the event. You do not leave GTM West the same person as when you arrived. I learned more in 2.5 days that I probably could have in 2 years had I not attended an event of this caliber. The boardrooms set the stage for inspiration and the one-on-ones keep you focused on “making it happen”. From the new friendships and business relationships created, to the unstoppable, never-miss-a-beat GTM West team, I would say the bar has been set.”
— Naomi Berhardt, Westside International Travel Inc. @ ALTOUR
