OTN’s Diverse Lineup of Virtual Events Allow for Continued Connection and Advisor Growth
BOCA RATON, Fla. (March 2, 2021) – OASIS Travel Network, an award-winning host travel agency, has successfully created and implemented a distinct roster of virtual events and webinars meant to offer members varying opportunities for connection with other members and industry providers of all kinds.
“Communicating with our members and ensuring they’ve got plenty of ways to continue to build their businesses and thrive during this challenging time has been a top priority for OASIS,” explained Kelly Bergin, President of OASIS Travel Network, noting these events are among the many additional efforts OASIS has been using to keep in contact with advisor members. “These virtual events are opportunities for members to have face time, connect, ask questions and foster relationships—oftentimes in a one-on-one setting. We know how eager our members are to do that!”
The reoccurring virtual events, outlined below, cover a wide range of topics and touch on the most important subjects facing the travel advisor community today.
OTN Virtual Forum
These forums, occurring at least twice each month, were created to help OTN members engage with supplier partner representatives on a more personal level. To allow for flexibility and increased connection, members can engage with a representative visually and verbally on OTN’s Zoom platform.
OTN Supplier Roundup
This quarterly event brings together supplier partners and members and offers even more one-on-one interactions—giving the feeling of almost sitting in the same room. The event includes a one-hour lightning round featuring a variety of 10-minute pitches by preferred suppliers, before moving to almost two hours of tradeshow sessions using Zoom breakout rooms to connect. Suppliers are able to connect with OTN members more directly than in a webinar or large Zoom meeting.
OTN Lightning Rounds
Occurring four to six times a year, OTN Lightning Rounds focus on different topics and offer a very quick overview (about eight minutes per supplier) of a specific category of suppliers, ex. travel insurance providers. OTN members will take away enough knowledge to decide if they want to pursue a relationship with a supplier and how to continue connecting.
Oasis Luxury Travel Market (OLTM)
Because hotels are a very large segment of what OTN members book, this twice-yearly event offers the opportunity for members to interact with specific luxury hotel brands and properties through one-on-one scheduled appointments.
These virtual events compliment the recent announcement of OTN’s 2021 Annual Conference, taking place November 8-9, 2021 at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. The event will be the first in-person OTN conference since the pandemic began in March 2020 and is co-located with Signature Travel Network’s Annual Conference, which is taking place at the same location immediately following.
