We have lots of ASTA Small Business Network member travel opportunities lined up for the remainder of 2017 and 2018. A must-attend: ASTA Small Business Network Conference in awe-inspiring Anchorage!
I couldn’t be prouder of this year’s programing, including many one-of-a-kind, experiential pre- and post- FAMs exploring Alaska’s natural beauty and wilderness. Flight seeing, rail experiences into Denali, Prince William Sound glacier viewing, cruising with ASTA Small Business Network colleagues on the Chichagof Dream expedition vessel with Alaskan Dream Cruises—all are options in the Great Land.
Make summer plans around ASTA’s Global Convention, August 27 – 29 in San Diego, featuring dedicated workshops, panels and receptions arranged with ASTA Small Business Network and ASTA independent travel agents in mind. There’s even an evening in the baseball park! Let’s show San Diego our travel agent pride as we cheer on the Padres at Petco Park.
Alaska and San Diego aren’t tempting enough? Join us for the ASTA China Summit, taking place in Guiyang, in Guizhou Province. Surrounded by mountains and forests, the city is renowned for colorful culture and represented by various ethnic groups. With China Southern airfare starting from $299 roundtrip in coach and $1,200 in business class, you can’t afford to stay home! After experiencing this lovely region all-in with ASTA—$999 for air, hotel, FAM and conference registration—you’ll return with a wealth of knowledge about this intriguing area.
