Here is the review of last year's 2022 IRTA Las Vegas Convention:

Image

IRTA's 2022 Planet Hollywood Convention was one of the best IRTA conventions ever! "There was a lot of positive collaborative energy the entire convention - people were really into finding new creative ways to advance our industry, observed IRTA's newly elected Chairman of the Global Board, Robin Maini.
The convention focused-on innovative technologies to capture the consumer, hotel/resort and corporate sectors to expand our market base. New strategies for employee retention and developing a robust media department also were discussed in detail.

UC's International Broker, Patty Weston perfectly summed-up the convention when she said, "After four years of not seeing each other in-person, due to hurricanes and Covid-19, the level of cooperation for the common good of the industry was unprecedented - it really showed what we all can accomplish when we work together. I, like so many others, left the convention as optimistic as I've ever been about the future of the barter industry."

If you missed this year's IRTA convention, we look forward to seeing you at the 2023 Virginia Beach, Virginia convention! Click on the red book below to see the quality and scope of what IRTA covers in a convention!
