Education That You Can Count On!

Why attend CNFBTA Educational Forums, you may ask? The benefits of CNFBTA membership and educational opportunities are numerous. We strive to deliver educational content that keeps you abreast of the ever-changing travel industry by providing insight from industry experts and your peers. We secure speakers and panelists that you want to hear from and content that is actionable and will keep you relevant. Our events also offer great networking opportunities for you to mingle other travel professionals in from all over Florida and the Southeast.

2018 Year to date, CNFBTA has delivered two CE accredited educational forums. In February, our 1st Quarter educational forum was in Jacksonville and presented content to help our members and attendees “Build a Best in Class Travel Program.” In April, our 2nd Quarter educational forum was in Orlando with a focus on “The Future of Travel Distribution.”   In addition, in May and June we organized roundtable networking and Orlando and Jacksonville Airport tours called “Walk In My Shoes.”

As we move into the second half of 2018, CNFBTA will continue to deliver best in class educational content with our 3rd and 4th quarter Educational Forums.

On September 13th, our program will focus on “Empowering the Travel Buyer.”   This event will be held in Altamonte Springs (Orlando area) and will bring together well-respected industry experts along with a panel of your peers to provide you the tools to be best leverage travel supplier negotiations and data analysis.   3 CE credits apply. Registration is open. Please click on this link to register today and bring an associate.

On November 8th, our final educational forum of 2018 will take place in Jacksonville. The theme is “Meeting & Events – Be Prepared.”   From our GBTA keynote to our moderator and panelists, you will learn what it takes to create and manage a Strategic Meetings Management Program that can deliver cost savings and risk reduction to your company.

We look forward to seeing you and hope that you will spread the word about CNFBTA!
