ATI Owners Malaka and Ryan Hilton always look forward to participating in the annual International Virtuoso Symposium. They know their presence and participation is key in maintaining the close relationships ATI enjoys with the travel industry’s best around the world. While additional regional Virtuoso meetings are held in the states several times a year—and ATI Advisors attend—the International Symposium is the gathering of true leaders and decision makers from the top cruise lines, luxury travel operators and hotel properties from around the globe. Being there is important.
This spring, Malaka and Ryan were especially looking forward to the attending this vital meeting held in a destination near and dear to their heart: Cape Town in South Africa. The 2016 International Virtuoso Symposium hosted more than 475 luxury travel executives from 43 countries who gathered to discuss key issues impacting travel today. The Hiltons spent four solid days in business meetings where executive-to-executive programs offered exciting new updates and networking opportunities; however, they were also able to carve out a few additional days to reconnect with tremendous wildlife experiences in the bush on safari.
We know Malaka and Ryan are already looking forward to next year’s Virtuoso International Symposium, but one thing is sure, it will be difficult to top their amazing experience in Cape Town! It was a special opportunity to rejoice in the South African experience and take in the bigger picture of the world’s travel current outlook plus emerging opportunities for 2016 and beyond. Stay tuned – ATI is always prepared to offer you the next big thing!
Virtuoso Symposium is a high level business meeting that brings together the most influential decision makers of the travel industry, including key member advisors and preferred providers.
