What is the USTOA Annual Conference & Marketplace?
Since USTOA's inception in 1972, the USTOA Annual Conference & Marketplace has distinguished itself for being the only travel industry event in the United States that brings together the leading North American travel companies with tourism suppliers and destinations from around the globe in an intimate and exclusive setting.

The Conference presents the following benefits:
  • Unique business casual atmosphere for a small select group of 700 travel professionals and networking opportunities throughout the conference to make new contacts and conduct business;
  • Direct and unprecedented access to travel industry leaders and decision makers representing the top US based travel companies whose combined annual sales volume exceeds $13.5 billion;
  • Highly informative speaker sessions that not only present interesting case studies and new tools and tactics, but introduce thought provoking ideas that can help improve your business;
  • Invaluable insight into the North American travel market and the latest factors and trends affecting the industry and travelers across the globe.

The investment you make to attend the conference offers the potential to make an important impact and deliver long lasting returns for your business.
