Travel insights from Beth Kitzman, business development manager for VAX VacationAccess

VAX Attends GTM!

VAX headed to the GTM event for the first time ever in July and it was a great experience. I met a lot of amazing agents and had the opportunity to develop solid relationships with so many of them! I also had fantastic conversations with many new suppliers and it turns out that many of the suppliers believe this is the pinnacle event, crème de la crème of events to make sure not to miss! In addition to our 52 one-on-one 6-minute meetings and the board room presentations, there were so many opportunities to meet and talk to the top-vetted agents from across the industry.

To make the event even better, we had delicious meals and entertaining evening events. Karaoke night kicked it all off and even though I was too late to sign up to be able to participate on stage, we were all singing along with those brave enough to showcase their talent. What a blast! The next night was 80s night and there was even more energy, fantastic costumes and opportunity to build those relationships in a fun and memorable way!

Overall it was a fantastic opportunity to meet new people in the industry – both agents and suppliers, discover more about the struggles and successes of agents and show how VAX can continue to help them grow and meet those needs and, of course, hear from agents who immediately share their LOVE for VAX when I meet them.

Hope to meet you soon at the next events!
