Saturday's itinerary of the Worldchoice 2018 Conference kicked off with an early start. Catherine and Linda of ATTS had it covered with a sponsored "Grab & Go" breakfast. An engaged crowd attended Carol Anne's opening speech focusing on the theme of this year's conference, "Stronger Together", an apt description of the c.70 agencies in this consortium, employing an impressive 550 people across the country.

 

Key sponsors of the event gave topical presentations, including Riona McGrath (Country Manager  Travelport) providing an insight where technology will take us in the future and a demonstration of their online system; Declan Power (Shannon Airport) highlighting the €40m investment including facial recognition meaning it is the fastest USA pre-clearance worldwide; Michael English (Celebrity Cruises) updated the audience on the new ship, Celebrity Edge, launching December 2018; and Jennifer Callister (Royal Caribbean International) detailed CocoCay in the Bahamas.

 

Following a coffee break (sponsored by Amadeus), the attendees were treated to a talk entitled "How to Grow Your Business, People and Yourself" by public speaker and BBC broadcaster, David Meade. He entertained and captivated the crowd for 90 plus minutes with insights into personal behaviour, persuasion and how to influence people.

 

It was then on to a fantastic lunch, sponsored by Royal Caribbean International
