events & brochures

Sometimes suppliers will host an event, cruise ship viewing, or workshop in your area. These are generally free to attend and are an awesome way to connect with your fellow Go Travel agents and develop relationships with suppliers. They are fun, informative, and sometimes even have amazing prizes! 

 

If you are on supplier mailing lists, you may get an email notification of upcoming events. We also post events our FB group as we are notified of them. 

Major centers will have more events than smaller locations, and not all suppliers visit all locations.

 

To keep up-to-date on these events, a great resource is Clearing Calendar. This is an industry website where suppliers post their upcoming events. You won't be able to attend everything, as some are invite only. Some are specific to agencies/consortia, so it's a good idea to check with us before registering if you are unsure that you should attend. Not all events get posted here.

Clearing Calendar

Note: Currently most events are only happening virtually.
 

 

If you register, you must attend. Many events have a limited capacity. They fill quickly and often have wait lists. If you can't attend after you have registered, you must follow the instructions on the confirmation and let the supplier know well in advance. Otherwise, you, Go Travel, or both may be fined and banned from attending future events with that supplier.

Supplier Brochures

While many suppliers have moved to providing only digital copies of their brochures, there are some suppliers you can still order paper copies from. Some suppliers limit the number you can order, and some may offer additional options like signs and posters. The ML has some options for locations where you can order from multiple suppliers at once, and you can also check the agent portal of any supplier for more information as well.

Be sure to only order what you need and to have them mailed to your home address. If you are doing tradeshows/travel events, these are great to have on hand to give out to potential clients.
