CruiseOne® Sells Out 2014 National Conference Aboard Regal Princess

Annual Conference is Largest Ever and Will Feature Dynamic Speakers

June 11, 2014 // // Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – CruiseOne®, which is part of leading cruise retailer World Travel Holdings (WTH), has announced that its 2014 National Conference aboard the brand new Regal Princess, has officially sold out. The weeklong conference taking place from Nov. 9 – 16, 2014, will feature diverse, motivational guest speakers who will set the tone and energize attendees for fun-filled, educational days at sea.

More than 900 people are registered to attend this year's National Conference, fittingly themed GROWTH, with several people still on a waiting list. This year's event surpasses attendance records from previous years, with 20 percent more people attending than in year's past.

"We are so excited by the response from the agents in our network. The record-breaking attendance is the result of an improved conference experience for attendees due to robust content, engaging events, one-on-one vendor time, motivating speakers and networking opportunities," said Drew Daly, vice president of sales performance for CruiseOne. "This year's conference theme of GROWTH will come to life for attendees when they Gain Relationships and Opportunities through WTH."

In addition to a keynote address from Arnold Donald, the President and CEO of Carnival Corporation and PLC, other featured speakers include Chief Motivation Officer Stuart Cohen; Social Media Travel Expert Margie Jordan; and Hall of Fame Speaker, Humorist, Health Professional, Author and Educator Kathleen Passanisi, PT, CSP, CPAE.

With Carnival Corporation since 2001, Donald will provide an overview of the industry and discuss Carnival's commitment to travel professionals, as well as a company update. Cohen is a 26-year travel industry veteran who brings passion and exhilaration to the stage with a uniquely refreshing "enter-training" style, drawing upon his hands-on experiences and unquenchable desire to help others achieve higher levels of success and happiness. Jordan teaches travel professionals the social media strategies that have worked in growing her travel business and with a focus on results, her training programs are practical and designed with the novice in mind. Honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award in therapeutic humor, Passanisi enhances the way people laugh, live and work with an upbeat and comedic approach.

"I attend National Conference every year because I receive so much additional training and information regarding CruiseOne as an organization and the travel industry as a whole. The time spent face-to-face with suppliers, the informative workshops and general sessions and the updates on how our parent company sees the future of CruiseOne is invaluable," said Debby Hughes, CruiseOne Franchise Owner and Advisory Council member. "A definite highlight is getting to see agents from all over the country, many of whom have become close friends, and meeting new agents. The connections made are life-long and enable us to work closely together as a family."
