Ah, Virtuoso Travel Week. If you know, you know…
If you are new to Virtuoso Travel Week, or VTW, picture this: each summer, the who’s-who of the travel industry – everyone from international hoteliers to sales titans to travel agents and journalists – makes the pilgrimage to Sin City for a week-long networking extravaganza. Fun fact: Virtuoso Travel Week is the only week of the year when the Bellagio hotel staff can't take vacation.
This year, several Fora Advisors and members of HQ staff attended VTW to meet, mingle and soak up all things travel in 2022. They learned about what’s new, what’s trending and what’s on everyone’s mind – including splashy hotel debuts, destinations to watch and much, much more. (Oh, and they also had a lot of fun.)
Fresh off travel’s biggest week of the year, we’re spotlighting the hotels and experiences that caught our advisors’ eyes. These are the swoon-worthy resorts and bucket-list adventures that made the biggest impressions. And we can’t wait to share them with our community.
Attending industry events is one of the many perks of being a Fora Advisor. Interested in joining us? Become a travel advisor today.
